One of 290 supplied to the Swedish Army, restored a while ago to standard civillian spec, could do with some attention now but it's a very rare matching numbers machine. We'll recommission it and report further with a video to confirm mechanical condition. There are two photos of these machines on page 56 of Harry Woolridge's Triumph Tropy Bible and it might be fun to put it back to military spec if you're going to restore it. TR5s are rare anyway, this one is rarer still and therefore very desirable. Workshop inspection reports a smokey engine but running well and mechanically quiet so a top-end refresh and cosmetic tidy-up would be in order and add value.
