Triumph Spitfire Engine Swap TimeLapse
We have never done a complete engine and transmission swap from start to finish in one day, it has always been spread out over a few days. The upcoming race is 24 hours straight so we don't have the luxury of taking our time during the night getting it ready for the next day. Murphy set in, there were differences in the engines. The water pump was different so we needed larger fan belts, different thermostat housing, and we had to convert to an electrical water temp gauge. Good thing we tried this at home and not at the track during the race. The GoPro camera ran out of batteries about 30 minutes before the engine fired. Looks hilarious to me, hope you enjoy it.

Triumph 1800 Roadster
The Triumph 1800 Roadster was the first car built by Triumph Motor Company after the end of World War 2. In its production years from 1946 to 1948 the british classic car was supposed to compete against famous Jaguar models. This specimen was built in 1947 and hasn´t lost a bit of its captivation!





Triumph Story
The Triumph Motor Company was a British car and motor manufacturing company. The Triumph marque (trade-name) is owned currently by BMW. The marque had its origins in 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann (1863--1951) of Nuremberg initiated S. Bettmann & Co and started importing bicycles from Europe and selling them with his own trade-name in London. The trade-name became "Triumph" the year next, and in 1887 Bettmann was joined by a partner, Moritz (Maurice) Schulte, also from Germany. Beginning in 1889 the businessmen started producing their own bicycles in Coventry, England. In November 1944 what was left of the Triumph Motor Company and the Triumph trade-name were bought by the Standard Motor Company and a subsidiary "Triumph Motor Company (1945) Limited" was formed with production transferred to Standard's factory at Canley, on the outskirts of Coventry. The pre-war Triumph models were not revived and in 1946 a new range of Triumphs was announced, starting with the Triumph Roadster. The Roadster had an aluminium body because steel was in short supply and surplus aluminium from aircraft production was plentiful. In the early 1950s it was decided to use the Triumph name for sporting cars and the Standard name for saloons and in 1953 the Triumph TR2 was initiated, the first of a series that would be produced until 1981.

1955 Triumph TR2
Rock and Rods car show's got it all! Here's a little info about the Triumph name I've got so far-- feel free to fill in what YOU know about this amazing little roadster in the comments section: The Triumph Motor Company was a British car and motor manufacturing company. The Triumph marque (trade-name) is owned currently by BMW company. The marque had its origins during 1885 when Siegfried Bettmann (1863--1951) of Nuremberg initiated S.

Beginning 1889 the businessmen started producing their own bicycles in Coventry, England. he Triumph TR2 (Triumph 2 litre sports) was built between 1953 and 1955 by the Standard Motor Company in the United Kingdom, during which time 8,636[3] cars were produced. The DVLA revealed in 2002 that only 517 examples of this car remain on UK roads.[4] The car used a twin SU carburetor version of the 1991 cc four-cylinder Standard Vanguard engine tuned to increase its output to 90 bhp (67 kW).[2] The body was mounted on a substantial separate chassis with coil-sprung independent suspension at the front and a leaf spring live axle at the rear. Either wire or disc wheels could be supplied. The standard transmission was a four-speed manual unit but overdrive was available on top gear as an option. Lockheed drum brakes were fitted all round.
