The Triumph 2000 Register currently considers these values to be on the low side. Values do vary, but good cars routinely fetch significantly more. For a full valuation of your car, or of a potential purchase, contact the Register by emailing email@example.com.

7. Parts hard to get - add the following: Original panels are all but unobtainable. Occasionally they do come up for sale but are usually very expensive. Repro panels are also expensive, repair pieces more affordable. Interior seat fabrics - little about secondhand in good condition, especially corded bri-nylon which deteriorates in sunlight over time. A similar material is available but is slightly different and therefore only suitable for a full retrim.
