Classic Car Auctions says:

This TR7 is presented in superb order throughout. Its first year of ownership was spent under that of British Leyland and used for marketing purposes. The car was then purchased by a Mr R Barringer of Northampton in October of 1983 who is still the registered owner of the car. The TR7 did however change keeper in 2000 to Mr K Barringer, (his brother) and then back again, for personal reasons. The bill of sale from 1983 is present with the paperwork.

Finished in red with tan check interior and black hood this Triumph presents very well indeed. The car has recently been resprayed, but bodily it is totally original and has never been welded. The rubber bumpers, chassis, interior and hood are all unmarked and are a total credit to the cars owner.

Currently displaying a warranted mileage of 71,883 miles this car is offered for sale with the original factory booklets, brochure and a current MOT certificate expiring April 2015 (although it will have a fresh MoT before the auction).

TR7's in this condition rarely come onto the open market, making this an opportunity not to miss.
