Having looked into the costs and paperwork involved with shipping my Sprint out to Perth Australia I have decided I need to let it go.
It was due to go for respray this month but I spent the money on air tickets!
1978, Flamenco red. I have owned this car since 1988 but only been restoring it these last four years. All welding has been done so no structural work required. Its at the stage now where after being resprayed the engine is ready to be refitted. New RB stainless sports system, halogen light conversion kit with all new chrome rings and ancilliary parts. I also have a garage of spare parts including engine/ manual o/d gearbox and axle, full dashboards, two good bonnets and matching tailgates. Front and rear screens, cylinder heads, about five spare doors with trim, numerous bumpers. ten black doorcards. Ask and I'll see if I have it.
I wont be moving out permanently just yet but everything needs to go.

David

Open to reasonable offers. I appreciate it isn't finished but it's not far away and sale would include as much of my spares to finish as required.
If things work out I hope to move before the end of this year. So there's no immediate rush but the car should go to someone on here.

Sorry I haven't been on for a while.
Everything is for sale but presently one of my local Triumph enthusiasts has expressed a genuine desire to buy the Sprint, but negotiations will have to wait till after my trip to Perth WA.

I'm in Perth WA just now. One of my triumph owning friends has made it clear he wants to buy my sprint and whatever spares he may need.

I used to own this car! In fact, davy67, I think you may have bought it from me a long time ago.
If I can find out how to upload an image I'll show you some photos of it.

Wow! That's it. It still had those spotlights on it when I bought it in Hornchurch. In fact I think I may still have them somewhere. That must have been taken a long time ago because I've had this car since September 1988.

It was indeed 1988 and you bought it from me in Hornchurch. I have another couple of photos if I can find them (I've been scanning in old negs). I loved that car. I used to drive it from Hornchurch down to Portsmouth and overtake all the 'new' hot hatch XR3 drivers. I loved the overdrive (or 3 and 1/2 gear and 4 and 1/2 gear as I used to call it). When you think about modern cars with their 7 and 9 speed semi-automatic gearboxes, overdrive was ahead of it's time, as was the rudimentary anti-lock braking (a valve in the braking system which opened under body weight transfer) as well as 4V/Cyl SOHC, seat belt indicators etc. It looked the part too. I'd love to know what happened to it after you bought it from me. I seem to remember you were going to drive it up to Scotland?

Another couple of photos Image - note the one from behind the bumper and boot look warped -they were straight -it's just that the negative moved slightly in the negative scanner. Image
