Prototype 2600 MkIII Saloon #1

LWK 725F Chassis No X772

Originally built like our experimental PI Estate with an early TR5 engine CP 133 E .

Sometime in the mid 1970's it was re-shelled with one of the Triumph 2600cc OHC engine (PE166) development shells.

These cars have unique bonnets, nose cones to fit the longer deeper 2600 engine. Amongst the many contacts we have from the former experimental department the consensus of opinion is that up to 20 of these special shells were constructed.

It didn't come fitted with a 2600 engine but had been adapted to fit a more familiar Triumph straight 6 but never the less still an experimental engine bearing the number X1140E.
