Triumph TR5, Jasmine Yellow

The TR5 modelled was built at Triumph's factory in Canley, Coventry, on January 3rd, 1968 and is one of only 2947 TR5s produced in the model's short 15 month production run before it was replaced by the TR6; this rarity makes TR5s extremely sort after today. It was supplied new to first owner Francis Duffy of Kingston, Surrey, and he must have enjoyed the car because he kept it until April 1975. Restored to a high standard in 2012 by Yorkshire resident Peter Moffat, it was purchased in 2017 by German, Rudolf Grotefels, a British sports car enthusiast who enjoys bringing it to classic car events in Britain such as the Goodwood Revival.

Restorer, Moffat, bought the car in late July 2010, having been tipped off about it at a TR event. It had been standing under a tarpaulin in a field in Cornwall for over 12 years and was very rusty. However, it had also been partially dismantled so he started what must be considered an extremely brave restoration by completing that process, assessing what components he had, then deciding if they were usable. Moffat is a long standing TR enthusiast who knows them well and tackled most of the work himself, although the respray and tasks such as crank regrinding were done professionally. The results are extremely impressive and this TR5, which many would have used only for spares, is a credit to his workmanship.
