    Hi All
    The Triumph Special is currently for sale at £5250
    (MG Car Club Mag. Dec 2017 page 97)

    The other 'prototype' was a 4 cylinder Triumph Special built on a Herald/Spitfire base.
    I did own JRR for about 10 years, but only drove it to have its MOT test ( which it past)

    I didn't get any where near £2000 for it!

    This was a missed opportunity for the club to own part of it's own history...
    - 9th Custodian of JRR 929D, the Triumph Vitesse based special Paul Moorehouse built prior to the Triumph based Roadster kits.
    - 8th owner of Roadster chassis number 2395. Kit manufactured 1983, first registered in 1987. Now owned by Barry!
    - Builder of chassis number 2325 (PKK 989M) in the mid 80's. Now owned by Eric & Lynne in the NE of England.

    Thought you would like to see it without the screen. I liked the look of it.

    It appeared at the Charterhouse auction at the classic car show at Shepton mallet on Sunday 5th Nov. Entered by the current owner it failed to make any bids even when offered to start at £2000. The seller now has it advertised in various classic car mags.and papers (classic car weekly)

    it would look amazing with aeroscreens.
    I guess the market finds its own level?

    Agreed, would definitely look neat with aero's. I'd be tempted if the price was a little more sensible.

    Agreed, if I'd seen that photo when it was for sale for <£2k on here I would have bought it, fitted aero screens and sold my MkII hybrid... would be a unique car, I've always fancied aero screen and goggle driving, mind you it's probably hell in reality!
