This one looks very tidy

The Triumph 2000 is a range of medium sized automobiles that was first released in October 1963 and stayed in production until 1977.

The Triumph was built and assembled in a number of locations across the globe including the UK, South Africa, New Zealand and even locally in Australia.   

Designed by one of the all-time greats of automotive design, Giovani Michelotti, the 2000 was made available to customers as either a four-door sedan or five-door wagon.

Power was derived from either a 2.0lt or 2.5lt  inline six-cylinder motor, and the shove from these two donks was sent to the 2000s rear wheels via either a four-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission.

The 2000 was a pretty successful model for the Triumph Motor Company, with over 324,000 examples being sold in the 2000s 14 years of existence.

This particular 2000 is a 1968 Mk1 wagon and comes equipped with the 2.5lt inline six-cylinder donk and three-speed automatic transmission.

According to the seller, the vehicle has received a ground-up, no expense spared restoration and has no rust in the body.

The seller adds that the 2000 has won many awards over the years including the Directors Choice Award at the 2014 Euroa National Show and Shine.

The Triumph is $20,000 and anyone interested in this lovely looking Brit can view the full listing here.
