Restoration Project Update: 1960 Triumph Italia 2000

1960 Triumph Italia

We are now deep into our third Triumph Italia restoration and could not be happier with the car we are working with. The car has been completely sand blasted down to bare metal, showing us exactly what we are dealing with. The car is nearly rust free and has never had any body damage or accidents in its life. We’ll need to replace one rocker panel and repair the other due to rust, but that is just about it. The two other Triumph Italias we restored both needed extensive rust and accident repair, so it is very nice to have our hands on such a solid car starting out. The car is now in epoxy primer and waiting on Hank’s Welding & Fabrication to get to work on the rust and panel repair. Check out the latest photos of the project and stay tuned for more updates!
