This book which covers all Triumph TR5/250 and TR6 models, explains the characteristics of the various TR sportscars, what to look out for when purchasing & how to restore a TR cost effectively. As well as his own substantial experience and that of other amateur restorers, the author had the help of various TR specialists and professional restorers. All this knowledge, allied to substantial photographic coverage, allows Roger Williams to provide truly detailed coverage of complete restoration and good advice on how to overcome common problems. Note that the TR5 model was known as the TR250 in the USA.

Review:

This is in many ways essential reading if you are contemplating the purchase of your first TR5 or TR6, even if you have no plans to buy a restoration project. That's because of the down-to-earth buying advice, which can be read in conjunction with the restoration chapters to help you assess the level of work needed to cure any problems. And if you do plan to get your hands dirty, then this book is packed full or real world advice on restoration and maintenance, the ideal companion to a workshop manual. - Triumph World

A minor expense in the whole purchase project. If the purchase is successful the book can be a useful future reference. If it is unsuccessful then the general advice for purchasing will be useful for any car purchase. - --Triumph Sports Owners Club, Queensland
