Brian Gibson has not allowed the lockdown to slow him down. As was previously reported, he purchased a 1947 Triumph Roadster from HOCASC last year that was in the (late?) Bert Scheepers collection. It is a magnificent car, a model now seldom seen, and we can’t wait to see it displayed at the next Knysna Motor Show. Brian also completed the chassis up restoration of a beautiful TR3A.
Brian has recently purchased an industrial unit in Knysna to store his ever-growing collection of Triumphs (and BMW’s). Over the past months of lockdown Brian has refurbished the building and now has a fully equipped workshop, office and meeting room. Brian has now completed 2 beautifully rebuilt sidescreens- a TR2 known as “Mathilda” and a TR3A known as “Minty”. Brian’s workshop is very conveniently situated near his major service providers While I visited Brian last week his local body shop delivered his next TR, a matching numbers TR2, by simply pushing it up the road. Here is a pic of Brian taking delivery. In a dark Green colour that is almost Black, with Tan leather trim planned, it is going to be magnificent car. (all his cars have names but, I did not ask if this one will be called “darky”) 😊
