Cars Gallery / MVC575 prototype Triumph TR2
The 1953 ex-works TR2 (in this car Ken Richardson broke the 2-litre standard production sports car record at 125 mph at Jabbeke). Bought in 1969 for £7 10s from John Hedger who had bought it from the Factory in 1954. It ran faithfully for one summer before being laid-up. Unable at that time to make the investment of restoring, I sold it in about 1972 (against the wishes of the newly-formed TR Register) but it has never reappeared. A very big mistake.
