Details: Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1963 Triumph TR4. The Heritage Certificate on file confirms this Australian delivered, factory right hand drive example was built on the 24th October 1963 and left the factory with Signal Red paint and a red interior. The car was delivered with the following options: 590 Rayon tubeless tyres, black hard top, windscreen washers and overdrive. The early history of this car is not known. It is understood the car was purchased by the prior to previous owner in a disassembled state in July 2002. He was an old school British motor mechanic who subsequently restored the car. Unfortunately, he passed away sometime after that and the car was sold to the previous owner in May 2016. At that time the odometer read 2,847 miles, which is understood to have been the mileage since the car was restored. When he acquired the car he took it to highly respected Triumph specialist Greg Tunstall Mechanical in Brisbane a check over and some minor repairs. A compression test was done and the compression reading was an even 175 psi over all 4 cylinders. He has enjoyed the car throughout his 5 years of ownership and had the car regularly serviced by marque specialists. In his ownership, amongst a few other things, the speedo & tacho were repaired and a new radiator was installed. In July 2021 both rear wheel brake cylinders and worn steering rack boots werereplaced and in January 2022 a new brake booster was fitted. This car is well known to Oldtimer Australia, having been sold by us to the current owner in January 2022. At that time the odometer read 8,224 miles. In his ownership he has used and enjoyed the car, travelling some 1,500 miles. He has continued to maintain the car and has had the clutch master & slave cylinder and the starter motor overhauled, the suspension bushes replaced and new ball joints installed. He also discovered a small crack in the fuel tank (where the fuel pipe joins the tank) which he had repaired. Today the odometer reads 9,706 miles. This Triumph TR4 is a beautifully presented car that runs and drives every bit as good as it looks. Being an older restoration, it is not in concours condition, which makes it the perfect car to take to cars and coffee, a club event or just out for a nice Sunday morning drive. Everyone would comment . . . what a lovely TR4!. The red paintwork is still in very good condition and it has a strong depth of colour with a deep gloss finish. There is some very light wear and minor defects evident consistent with its age. All the external trim, including the lights, lenses and chrome (particularly the grill, bumpers and badges) are is in very good condition. The panel gaps are generally very good. The aftermarket Minilite style 15 wheels are like new and suit the car perfectly. The wheels are fitted with Kumho Solus KH17 tyres all around which are date stamped 0512 (week 5, 2012). Whilst they are still in a good condition it is probably time to replace them based on age. This TR4 has a soft top and tonneaucover, both are black and in very good condition with no rips or tears. The black upholstery has been trimmed with white piping, which is a perfect combination with the red paintwork. This is complemented beautifully by the timber dashboard and Motolita style steering wheel. The upholstery is in excellent condition and the seats are firm and supportive. The black carpets are also in very good condition with minimal wear. All the instruments are in very good condition and in working order. The car is also fitted with seat belts. The engine bay is clean and very well presented. The car retains its ID plate and body number tag, which look to be original and correct. The Heritage Certificate confirms that the chassis, body and engine numbers all match. The boot is also very neat, clean and tidy. This car looks the goods, but whats it like to drive? You slide in behind the steering wheel, get comfortable and fire up the 2,138cc 4 cylinder engine. From cold the car needs full choke to start. The exhaust note is raspy and the little engine just wants to rev! It only gets better from there once the engine warms up. First impressions are extremely positive and one can quickly confirm that this TR4 drives every bit as good as looks! It is tight on the road for an early 1960s open top British sports car. The engine feels strong and the car pulls well through the rev range. The gear changes are smooth and for those longer drives the car is equipped with the desirable overdrive. The steering is direct, the car handles well and the brakes pull the car up efficiently. The car is accompanied by an owners manual, service book, parts catalogue, service receipts going back to 2016 other miscellaneous documentation, tonneau cover and a spare wheel The Michelotti designed TR4 is one of the best looking of the TR series Triumphs and we think offers great value for money. Dont miss this opportunity to own a fabulous example of the quintessential British sports car. Highlights: - A beautifully presented example - Finished in a perfect colour combination. - Fitted with 15 Minilite style wheels. - An absolute delight to drive. Price $56,950. Background: In 1885 Siegfried Bettmann, a German living in London, founded S. Bettmann & Co and started importing bicycles from Europe. Initially, he was selling them under his own trade name, however, in 1886 the name changed to Triumph. In 1897 the company was renamed as the Triumph Cycle Co Ltd and in 1902 the company started producing motor cycles at their factory in Coventry. Business was booming, thanks to big orders from the British Army which needed motor cycles during the First World War and by 1918 Triumph had become Britains largest manufacturer of motor cycles. In 1921 Bettmann acquired the assets of the defunct Dawson Car Company and started producing cars. The first car to wear the Triumph name was the Triumph 10/20. This car and its immediate successors were only produced in small numbers, however, that all changed with the introduction of the Triumph Super 7 in 1927. This car was a success and it was sold in large numbers through until 1934. In 1930 the name of the company was officially changed to the Triumph Motor Company. Times were tough and Triumph was struggling to compete with larger car companies. The company started having financial problems and in 1936 the bicycle and motorcycle business were sold to Jack Sangster of Arial. In 1939 the Triumph Motor Company went into receivership and the factory, equipment and goodwill were offered for sale. They were sold, but the Second World War stopped production and the Triumph factory was completely destroyed by bombing in 1940. After the Second World War, what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the trade name were purchased by the Standard Motor Company. In 1946 the first new Triumph, the 1800 Roadster, was released to directly compete with Jaguar. In 1950 the company decided to use the Triumph name for all sports models and the Standard name for saloon cars. History now says that this was a strategically brilliant move as it signalled the birth of the Triumph TR series cars. The TR series Triumphs stand as iconic British sports cars that are well known and loved by enthusiasts all over the world. It started back in 1952 when the Triumph 20TS, a prototype sports car which later became known as the TR1, was shown at the London Motor Show. Reactions were mixed, however, Triumph thought they were on to a good thing and the prototype evolved into the TR2 that was subsequently shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 1953. Triumph built over 8,500 of these 1991cc 4 cylinder sports cars from 1953 1955 and as they say the rest was history. The model evolved into the TR3 (produced from 1955 1962), the TR4 (built from 1961 1965), the TR4A (built from 1965 1967), the TR5 (built from 1967 1968) and ultimately the TR6 (1969 1976). Subsequent TR models were interesting cars, but it is fair to say the evolution of the TR2 finished at the TR6. Triumph built 40,253 TR4s during its 5 year production run, the majority of which were left hand drive and sold into the United States. An Australian delivered, factory right hand drive example is relatively rare.

Details: Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale this lovely factory right hand drive 1968 Triumph TR5 PI. The Heritage Certificate on file confirms this car was built on the 14th March 1968 with a date of despatch of the 29th March 1968. The car was sold through Lambs Limited, Woodford Green, UK. The car was delivered to its first owner with the following options fitted: heater, wire wheels, Jasmine hard top and 165x15 SP41 tyres. The Heritage Certificate confirms that this car was originally delivered in jasmine (primrose yellow) with black upholstery. It also confirms the car retains its original engine. The early history of this car is not known but it must have come to Australia fairly early in its life. The documentation on file confirms this TR5 to be a long term Perth car. The history file starts in 1986 when on the 1st April 1986 Edward Podolski acquired the car from Lynda Kostera. At that time the car was registered as 6LW967. Podolski only kept the car for a few months before selling it on the 13th October 1986 to Richard Lindsay, The car was then sold through Alf Barbagallo Motoring Excellence in Osborne Park to Ian Barrett on the 29th December 1990. Barrett was to be a long term custodian of this TR5 and he kept it for the next 25 years. At the end of 2001 he engaged Motormend - The Triumph Centre in Perth to repaint the car. In 2004 Motormend replaced the original gearbox with a 5-speed Toyota Supra gearbox. At the same time the starter motor was overhauled. When all this work was done the odometer read 02,867 miles. Barrett sold his beloved TR5 in January 2016 to Barry Ogston from Rockingham. In June 2016 he had Motormend install a surrey top. In February 2017 he had a custom stainless steel exhaust system installed and in March 2018 he had the seats rebuilt and retrimmed in leather. The current owner, who lives in northern NSW near Newcastle, acquired the car from Barrett in July 2020. In his ownership the engine has been completely rebuilt in December 2023 by British car specialists Moxham Garage in Wyong, NSW. At that time the engine bay was also repainted. Incredibly, it has been 23 years since this car was repainted and in that time the car has travelled some 25,000 miles. Today the paint on this TR5 presents exceptionally well, which is credit to the quality of the repaint carried out all those years ago. It has retained a strong depth of colour and a smooth, deep gloss finish. On closer inspection there are a few minor defects here and there, but the overall condition belies the fact this car was repainted many years ago. The bright work is generally in a good condition. The bumpers, grill and the headlight surrounds present well. The indicator surrounds, the badges and the door handles show some very minor pitting. The chrome wire wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash. They are shod with Maxxis 185/65/15 tyres all around, which are date stamped 4508 (week 45, 2008). Whilst the tyres are still in good condition, they should probably be replaced based on age. From the photos it looks like the car is running white wall tyres, but it is not. The wheels actually have a white ring fitted, which gives the appearance of white wall tyres. Open the door and you are welcomed by a fresh, really smart interior. The seats, which have been retrimmed some 6 years ago, present well and there are no rips or tears in the leather. The dashboard presents well and the instruments are all clear and appear to be in good working order, with the exception of the speedo which is not accurate. It most likely has not been recalibrated when the 5-speed gearbox was installed. There is, however, a digital speedo with a heads up display installed on top of the dashboard which looks to read correctly. The car is fitted with aftermarket steering wheel, which is slightly smaller in diameter than the original. This is in excellent condition, looks great and feels just right when driving the car. Behind the seats youll find a carpeted storage area with two after market speakers. Throughout the cabin all the carpets are in good condition. The same can be said for the door cards. Under the bonnet everything looks neat, clean and tidy which is no surprise given the recent engine rebuild and engine bay repaint. In the boot everything is also similarly presented. There is a spare chrome wire wheel which is also shod with a Maxxis 185/65/15 tyre. Theres no doubt this TR5 is a goodn! It presents beautifully and after a recent test drive we can confirm that it also drives really well. The car starts easily, even from cold and only requires a little bit of choke to start. The engine quickly settles into a smooth idle. That raspy exhaust note is just right, which just teases the driver to get moving! We were curious to see how well the five-speed gearbox would suit the car and we were not disappointed. In short, it is fabulous and improves the drivability of the car. The gear changes are easy and really smooth. The engine has plenty of power on tap and just the car just wants to go. It accelerates quickly throughout the gears and all too easily you are well and truly exceeding the speed limit! At the same time the car feels very solid and predictable on the road. The suspension is firm, yet it easily absorbs minor bumps in the road. When needed the brakes pull the car up easily and in a straight line. The current owner has ticked a bucket list and thoroughly enjoyed his time with this quintessential British sports car. Over the years we have sold quite a few TR5s and none drive any better than this car. It is one of those cars that you can just jump in to use and enjoy. You wont win the concours, but this TR5 is beautifully presented and drives every bit as good as it looks. Accompanying the car is spare wheel, a Heritage Certificate and a very good history file. Today the odometer reads 27,087 miles. Highlights: - A well presented example of a quintessential British sports car. - A fabulous driving car. - Upgraded with Toyota Supra 5-speed gearbox. - Matching numbers engine and chassis - Recent engine rebuild. - Ready to be used and enjoyed.

Subsequent TR models were interesting cars, but its fair to say the evolution of the TR2 finished at the TR6. Perhaps the most interesting and certainly the rarest of all of the TR production cars is the TR5 with only 2,947 cars built. The most significant change from the TR4 was the introduction of a 6-cylinder 2.5 litre fuel injected engine that boasted an impressive 150 bhp that could propel the car from 0 50 mph (80 km/hr) in just over six seconds and a top speed of just under 120 mph (200 km/hr). Today the TR5 remains the most sought after and collectible of the TR series cars.

Details: Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale this absolutely magnificent Mercedes-Benz 190SL. The Lieferschein or Delivery Note on file confirms this example was delivered in November 1957 and exported to New York. The car was finished in the classic Mercedes-Benz colour of white (paint code DB50) with a black interior and black soft top. It also confirms that the car is matching numbers. The car was restored by SL Classics in Germany in 2015. It was then sold by Gooding & Company at their Amelia Island auction in March 2016 to a UK collector. More recently, the car has found its way to Australia. Today the odometer reads 285 miles, which is most likely the mileage since the car was restored. This car is STUNNING in every regard, apart from a very minor scrape under the front bumper which most likely occurred when the car was shipped. Accompanying the car is an unrestored hard top. Hard to find better. Highlights: - Restored by SL Classics in Germany to an exceptionally high standard. - Original colour and matching numbers. - Fitted luggage. - Ready show, use and enjoy. Price $314,950 Background: Following the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, Europes car industry was decimated. In Germany both Daimler and Benz went back to producing cars post-war, however, times were tough. A merger between Daimler and Benz would ensure that both companies survived and following a technical co-operation agreement in 1924, the companies formally merged on the 1st July 1926. Mercedes-Benz was born! Subsequently, Mercedes-Benz went on to build some of the greatest cars of all time. The cars from Stuttgart bearing the three-pointed star all had one thing in common . . . they were renowned for their technical innovation, build quality, luxury and performance. In the 1950s Mercedes Benz produced one of the greatest cars of all time the iconic 300SL Gullwing and 300SL Coupe. Whilst fabulous cars, they were very expensive and generally sold to the rich and famous. Mercedes wanted to build a sporting luxury car that still looked classical in the mould of the 300SL, but it had to be affordable and the plan was to build such a car in far greater numbers than the exclusive 300SLs. Enter the Type W121 or 190SL as it became known in the mid 1950s. This model was an outstanding success and circa 25,000 cars were built over the next 8 years of production. The formula worked and Mercedes Benz carried it on with great success in the 1960s with the Type W113 230SL/250SL/280SL models. This evolved into the Type R107/C107 280SL(C)/350SL(C)/380SL(C)/450SL(C) models built throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Mercedes-Benz marketed the 190SL as . . . as sports car for all seasons. To quote their website: . . . Sporting elegance, safety and comfort with these qualities the 190 SL conquered a whole new circle of enthusiastic fans of dynamic driving. Mercedes-Benz unveiled the prototype of the 190 SL (W 121) at the International Motor Sports Show in New York in February 1954, alongside the production version of the 300 SL Gullwing. Although the two-seater roadster with folding soft top stirred passions, it was to undergo a further thorough revision by the Mercedes-Benz designers known at the time as stylists. In March 1955, a full year after the New York premiere, the production version went on display at the Geneva Motor Show. Like its elder brother, the spectacular 300 SL Gullwing, the 190 SL rapidly became one of the most coveted dream cars of its day. Although less powerful than the 300 SL, it generated no less excitement and opened up the SL legend to a wider circle of customers. By 1963 sales had totalled 25,881 units. And even long-distance drives were enjoyable thanks to the comfortable suspension. The handsome sports car for all occasions was particularly popular among female drivers, who appreciated not only the sporting elegance of its design, but also the open-air feeling that came as standard. With its easy-to-operate soft top and optionally available coupé hardtop, the 190 SL was the first SL to combine the possibility of open-top driving with absolute all-weather capability.
