Vehicle History


ATO 900K was built in November 1971 and registered in January 1972. It is a RHD, UK home market CP series car fitted fuel injection rated at 150bhp. It benefits from matching numbers supported by a Heritage Certificate and its original line build specification sheet. It was rebuilt in 2012 to a high historically correct standard. The body was left attached to the chassis to maintain the original factory fits. The rebuild is supported by full photographic evidence. When rebuilt it was subject to the usual upgrades such Bosch fuel pump and use of unleaded fuel.
I bought the car in 2015 and have had it serviced, maintained and tuned by a Triumph specialist.
