Morning all,

What a great looking car, in fabulous condition. While normally I'm more drawn to "oily rag" vehicles, I must admit to wishing this was parked in my garage.

It is a great car and has been to meny shows on the Pre-1940 Triumph Motor Club stand.
I was with the owner yesterday as he runs the Used Spares unit of the Club.
His latest project is the restoration of a 1935 10.8 HP Gloria Saloon.
My project does move as fast as his,unfortunaty.

As troutrunner says it'd be interesting to read more re your car. You must be quite local to here.

I am storing a 1936 10.8Hp Triumph Gloria Vitesse Short Saloon.
The car has been in storage for over 60 years.It was our family car in the 1950s and was given to my farther for safe keeping by the original owner.
I do have photos of the stages in the restoration, but have not yet found the skill required to post any on to the site

If you're able to email them to me (dodgenut@4onthefloor.co.uk) I'll start a thread about your car for you.

Mike,
Sounds like an interesting project and with a very interesting history. Would be good to see some pics of it.
