History: According to an accompanying extract from the production records of The Standard Motor Company Ltd, this particular example was built on 24th September 1959 and originally finished in Signal Red with Black upholstery and Black weather equipment. Supplied new to America, it was repatriated in 1989 by sports car dealer Murray Scott-Nelson. Treated to an extensive, chassis-up, bare metal restoration by its first UK keeper, Mr B. Watson of Clifford, Wetherby, the work included conversion to right-hand drive and the installation of a more powerful TR3B/TR4 specification 2138cc four-cylinder UHV engine. Converted to run on unleaded petrol as part of an engine overhaul carried out during 2002, ‘SSK 972’ entered its most recent ownership a decade later. Progressively improved since then, the Triumph has benefited from attention to its fuel system, cooling system, clutch, headlights and carburettors. Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document, restoration photo album, large history file and MOT certificate valid until October 2018.
