On our way back from the Champagne Mouton vintage meeting we stopped to visit the chateau at Villandry and came across this selection of Triumph TR's on a tour of the Loire valley:
Drove a mate's TR6 25 years ago, handling was... disappointing... nearly binned it when I lost the back end over a hump back bridge. I could take my R5 GT Turbo down that same road at nearly double the speed... safely...TR6 in 150bhp trim on Weber DCOE's very appealing though 👌
I remember seeing a Mk3 Spit in a sort of primrose yellow that I've no reason to believe wasn't original. My own Mk2 Spit was originally a mid/dark blue (nowhere near as dark as navy) but went white when dad and I "restored" it. We left the hard top blue, though, as we liked the 2-tone effect.Late fifties and early sixties sports cars had some nice pastel shades, TR4s and frogeyes in a soft yellow, MGAs in a soft turquoise, old English white always looked good with red upholstery.
Particularly like the 65/66 colour of grey on an early BGT.
