From the seller’s description:

68 Triumph TR250 has been to restored to original specifications with rare and NOS parts and is in top condition. Not a resto mod. I am proud to offer a special car that has been part of our family for over 35 years.

When I purchased the car in 1983 it needed a complete rebuild, engine, interior, repaint and suspension. Kept the car off the road for 3 years while the work was completed. After this first restoration my wife and I drove the car every year, either commuting to work as a daily driver, cleaned up for car shows or taken for fun drives into the NC mountains. My girls have grown up with the TR250.

In 2012 the TR250 was off the road for 2.5 years being rebuilt again. The car was stripped down to bare metal and totally disassembled primed and repainted. Choose Dupont paint using the proper codes for Triumph Racing Green. New dash, similar wood originally used when new. Seats rebuilt with original diamond pattern covers, new top with proper reflective stripes, New redline tires. Original steel wheels with four clean rostyle hub caps. New windshield with all new seals, new dash top and carpet. Head machined and rebuilt. Purchased new boot deck above red line spare tire. Original jack and lug wrench is in the boot. Every effort to rebuild the car to original has been made. Hard to find parts have been collected over the past 35 years. Detailed records and pictures of the restoration are available.

The car has had regular maintenance and has always been reliable. Two weeks ago my wife drove the car 7 hours up and back to the National Triumph Meet with the 6-Pack club. Because this is the 50th Anniversary the TR250 was the featured Marque. I have never seen so many TR250’s, 15 in all. The car is in the best condition in 35 years and placed 1st in Concours. Two weeks before the show I put the final touches to a very original TR250. The distributor was rebuilt with the two vacuum units and mounted the very rare vacuum switch located on the throttle linkage. Three weeks ago I replace all the water lines and painted the correct yellow stripes. These are no longer available, however I had researched the correct color yellow and simulated the original hoses. They came out very well.
