1976 Triumph 2500 TC

Registration - RCA 617P

Chassis No. - MM3030479DLOP

M.O.T. - Exempt

Odometer - 87,511

This venerable British classic was unearthed by a Land Rover dealer from a barn where it had been quietly hibernating for 20 years. The agent sold it to the previous keeper who carried out a degree of recommissioning before transferring ownership to the vendor. His mission was to contest the 2020 Round Britain Reliability Run with the car, but that was ultimately cancelled because of the pandemic – hence its return to the market once more.

A manual transmission model equipped by the factory with overdrive and power steering, ‘RCA 617P’ features British Racing Green bodywork paired with beige cloth upholstery. We are informed that the aforementioned overdrive and power steering remain ‘in good working order’ and that the trusty Triumph was Ziebarted from new. It has recently benefited from the following maintenance: the refurbishment of the rear brakes and fuel tank; reconditioning of the differential and rebushing of the rear axle; rebushing of the front suspension and installation of an anti-roll bar; renewal of drive shaft bearings and universal joints; renewal of the clutch master and slave cylinder; installation of a set of new Minilite-style wheels and tyres, windscreen and windscreen rubber, and an electronic ignition system; a short engine rebuild at a cost of £1,482.50 plus VAT. The odometer currently registers a credible total mileage of 87,511.

Introduced in 1963 as the 2000, Triumph’s Michelotti-penned mid-sized saloon was in production for no less than 17 years, during which time the range was expanded to include 2500, 2500TC, 2500 PI and 2500 S variants. The TC label was a bit misleading, for while it did indeed have twin carburettors as the letters would suggest to most people, the badge in fact related to a higher than standard level of equipment. Some 32,493 TCs were manufactured between 1974 and 1977.

  • Rescued from a 20-year hibernation
  • Ziebarted from new
  • Lots of recent refurbishment

Location of Vehicle - Lawford, Taunton
