Both the Triumphs in my sig have O/Ds . I rebuilt them myself- to the extent I could. The TR4a was my first restoration project and both it and the Spit have been sidelined due to the new family. I expect it will become a major "retirement" project in a few years. At one time I had a 70 TR-6 to go along with the pair but it was too much of a project. And I really was looking for a TR-250, but after having the TR-4a, I have come to appreciate the old wet-sleeve design as being tougher.

I cut my teeth on a '68 MGB when I was a lad. I like those too, but the separate frame of the Triumphs is easier to restore than the unibody
