1968 Triumph TR5 Interior Restoration

Our Triumph TR5 is currently having it’s interior trimmed at our in-house trim shop.

Kath has made webbing straps to attach to the seat frames. She then begun stuffing the side bolsters and seat backing with foam, moulding the foam position to fully fill the available space.

The final stage will now be to stitch back up the leather outside of the seat and install components back together. As always, Kath’s attention to detail is second to none. Stay tuned to see our TR5 Restoration progress!

1968 TR5 Stripping Components

We’re in the early stages of our TR5 restoration. We need to asses which parts of the vehicle can be refurbished and which components will need to be replaced. As such, we will be stripping down every component and assembling from the ground up to ensure everything is in perfect condition.

Pictured below, Andy is stripping down the wheel hubs.

1968 Triumph TR5

Coming in as a part restoration is this 68′ Triumph TR5. A stalled project, this vehicle will now be taken in by us at Bridge Classic Cars for a total restoration.

Built in Coventry, Triumphed manufactured TR5’s between August 1967 and September 1968. The vehicle, along with the Herald and Spitfire was styled by Giovanni Michelotti. We’re honoured to bring another one of these beautiful little sports cars back to life.

We’re waiting on all of the parts that are currently with the vehicle to arrive, but so far we have pictured the chassis, suspension components (front hubs) and the seats.
