This is a great book on restoring Triumph TR5-6. So why not a 5 star review? Well knowing the cars so well I am nitpicking a little.For myself I would like to see a little more on the driving dynamics of the IRS Triumph sports cars and how you can maximise this during a restoration. Great book for anyone with a TR.
In keeping with his established style, a very comprehensive and detailed text by Roger Williams. Plenty of photo's and illustrations (some of which, to be fair, are not as clear as they might be. An example includes a few related to fitting the hood). All in all a very useful publication to have on your shelf and a perfect companion to Bill Piggots "Originalty" guide and Williams own book "How to Improve the TR5, 250 and TR6".
This manual is in itself a triumph of technical wrtiting that any restorer of a tr5/250 or tr6 should have as preliminary reading and reference. The layout, both written and graphic,gives a lucid picture to anyone who requires in depth information about a complex task and in doing so makes such a job both easier and enjoyable.
Without any question, if you are restoring a Triumph TR6 you should buy this book. But, beware, when it comes down to the nitty gritty of taking a not so sorry body tub off a reasonable chassis, you will find it lacking. Loads of really useful info in many areas not covered by the "so-called" restoration books, which turn out to be nothing more than a glamourised history of the marque. I believe the purchase price to be reasonable for the information provided. However, in the modern age of the web surfer, a few hours online at the... British Cars [website]...will provide as much information. Clearly the web was not an option during the writing of the book. The text is very READABLE readable, the content VALUABLE, and mostly ACCURATE. Lots of information to keep things running right in the post restoration phase too ...... I've just got to get there yet ! Enjoy ... Bob
