This beautiful TR2 has been subjected to a fully documented and meticulous nut and bolt restoration by well-known Cornish engineer.

Originally supplied to the UK market right hand drive with commission number TS4622 and registered 1 January 1955 and previously registered as POP464. Complete with huge history files including a photographic rebuild record and literally dozens of invoices detailing every purchased item in a huge A4 file and supporting contemporary road test and sales literature.


Due to the age of TR2’s and previous racing heritage, they are hugely eligible for a host of historic European racing and rallying including the fabulous annual Mille Miglia.
