I just had to put this thread together to put all of the legendary 'Mad Mart' restorations together...

I hope you don't mind?! These are just so darn good!

Project SFB

Project KDF

Project BFR

Project PFJ

Project THJ

Project PUS
The resto thread under a subsequent owner.

Project HPR

Project VHK

Project XJX

Well, have a look through these and enjoy... They are truly stunning restorations that show dedication, passion and skill... Perfection :wink:

Also, I have to say that this thread will grow as Mart acquires more cars to bring back from the brink of death so "stay tuned" as they say...Your browser does not support drag'n'drop file uploads.Please use the fallback form below to upload your files like in the olden days.

Ash, that was a brilliant idea of your's of featuring all of Mart's restos in one place.

I don't think Mart will stop until he has done one of every year and one of every colour! :lol: :thumbsup:

I do hope that more Sprints and other memebers of the small Triumph family get the 'treatment' from Mart as stunning just doesn't sum these cars up!

I think a 2500 estate next would be quite a tasty project... That or a Stag perhaps?!

:shock: When I read the title I thought you were proposing a museum for these cars Ash!


Good idea grouping them together.
If we are creating a sticky, may I suggest that Darren's 1500TC and Andrew-27's Toledo gain this status also
for two reasons, firstly these were undertaken by relative beginners and secondly these are less sought after models?



Thanks,

Ian.

Thank you grifterkid for starting this thread and everyone for their kind comments. I feel very honoured (and a little embarrassed). :oops:
