Another genuine barn find, this Triumph was put into store after an MOT failure in about 1990 due to the usual outrigger rust problem. Interestingly, the vendor’s father purchased the Vitesse from its first owner in 1976 and in 1981, ownership passed to his daughter. We understand that there was a speedometer change in the distant past at around 5000 miles, so the actual mileage is approximately 50000.

This worthwhile restoration project appears to be complete (apart from one missing wheel trim) and the Dorset registered motor car is supplied with its V5 registration document. One for the budding Triumph enthusiast.
