"I have, for many years, hankered after a Saab 900 Classic (pre 94) Convertible. For good measure the car needed to be a manual transmission. This model is very thin on the ground in New Zealand but I was lucky enough to spot one that turned out to be from Waimak Classic Cars. Buying a car unseen from 1500 km away was made very easy by Jesmond and Gloria. An inspection was quickly arranged and completed, and was accurate. Excellent communications made me feel very comfortable with the deal and now I have the vehicle I must say it is fantastic - exactly as described and promised.I highly recommend Waimak Classic Cars should you be in the market for such things."Stuart, Auckland, New Zealand
The Triumph 2500S took pride of place as the top model in Triumph's range of six cylinder saloons.
Designed for the executive, who prefer their quality built in, smoothness and comfort were its hallmarks, with an extra touch of distinction and luxury befitting its position as flagship of the Triumph range.
The Triumph 2500S has the grace, the power, the space and sheer style to satisfy the most demanding of people. It also has the ability to comfortably transport five adults and their luggage, while fulfilling its role as an appropriately elegant executive car.
ABOUT THIS CAR
- Power Steering
- 4 Speed Gearbox with Overdrive on 3rd and 4th.
- Fully independent suspension, servo assisted disk brakes.
- Factory Fitted Alloy Wheels
- Factory Upgraded Carpets
- Mint Condition Throughout – Immaculately Maintained – Hard to find better.
- This is one of the last Triumphs built at the Nelson assembly plant of the New Zealand Motor Corporation.
- Six long term owners from new – It came offline in November 1978 and was sold in Wellington in December 1978.
- It comes with all the features of the “S” model and still has the original paint identification sticker under the bonnet.
- Good “Medium Brown” paint – a true 70's colour in very nice original condition.
- Very straight body in excellent condition.
- Very well preserved original interior that provides the sort of comfort that cushions the occupants from outside stresses and relaxes them in seats trimmed in perforated vinyl leather cloth.
- This particular car was assembled from a series of CKD packs, which had been destined for Australian assembly but were “diverted” to New Zealand. At the time the demand in Australia had “tapered off” whilst in New Zealand there was still plenty of interest.
- Comes complete with “Passport To Service” book, Original Certificate Of Registration, Handbook, Parts Catalogue and maintenance Records.
These cars were hugely popular in New Zealand. In fact, New Zealand was the last country in the world to assemble them well after production in England had stopped. The replacement chosen by the New Zealand Motor Company in the New Zealand market at the time were the Leyland Princess and the ROver SD1 but neither achieved anything like the sales success of the Triumph.
Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
