1948 Triumph 1800 Roadster - Now Sold
Produced between 1946 – 49, the Triumph Roadster featured aluminium coachwork with styling very much in the pre-war idiom. The car was able to seat three across the bench seat, whilst the rear dickey seat offered occasional fine weather accommodation for two.
Powered initially by a 1.8 litre engine similar to that used in the smaller Jaguar of the period, later models were to use the same unit as fitted to the Standard Vanguard. The Triumph Roadster has always enjoyed something of a cult following and they are catered for by an enthusiastic owners’ club.
Comfortable and stylish, these cars are ideal for longer distance touring, as the dickey seat area, when not in use, offers plenty of space for luggage.
This example is of 1948 manufacture and was the subject of major restoration carried out over a two year period fairly recently.
The work included rebuilding of the engine, a full overhaul of the braking system with new cylinders all round. Five new tyres have been fitted, all bright work replated, the dashboard and door cappings re-lacquered. The hood and carpets have also been renewed and the seats recovered in beige hide.
In all, a very smart example of this iconic model. It retains the original and distinctive Perthshire registration number and is offered with much documentation and correspondence from the Triumph Roadster Club.
