CAR NOW SOLD
1978 Triumph Dolomite Sprint
Registration Number is: GFM 258T
Low mileage Sprint for restoration.
Viewing welcome. Car is an easy 10 mins from M6 junction 16.
Manual gearbox with overdrive on 4th and 5th gears.
Does not drive. Will need to be collected on a trailer. Needs bodywork repairs. Will need all of the mechanicals going through.
Front panelwork mostly in good order, excellent headlight support panels, metal eyebrows, full front steel valance and wings. No fibreglass anywhere.
Bulkhead behind dash where they usually rot, is very good. Under body floor etc, de-rusted and Waxoyled for front 2/3 of car.
Interior is pretty much complete but I think some of the front carpet sections might be missing.
There is a front bumper to go with the car. Car is mainly complete, comes with trim, grilles etc but no bonnet.
Bad Bits (mostly rear end):
OS wing: bottom area below bumper
NS wing: as above plus top section where it meets the boot. This is probably the worst area on the car.
Rear arches: not too bad, lower sections only need welding attention
Rear Valance holed along bottom edge, these are quite cheap from Rimmer Brothers I believe.
NS sill: needs rear jacking point sorting.
The small section chassis/box section/stiffener that is welded to the floor and runs from the NS (left) rear sub-frame mounting, down at an angle and then horizontally (where the passengers feet would be) needs to be replaced. A repair section is available from the Dolomite Club.
Doors will need attention, but I do still have the original drivers door, which is now probably better that the current white one.
Tyres will hold air but will need to be replaced
There will no doubt be other bodywork required besides the above mentioned, but it should be minor in nature.
