ANDY BOYD

Andy bought his 13/60 con­vert­ible in 1999. He says: ‘I’d never owned a Tri­umph be­fore but saw this car for sale and looked no fur­ther. It needed some work but my ini­tial plan was to treat it to a rolling restora­tion. But I soon re­alised it needed a com­plete re­build so I stripped it down then spent seven years put­ting it back to­gether. In 2008 it went back on the road and since then it’s been to Hol­land, Bel­gium, France and all over the UK. I love the car; it’s cheap to run and great fun. This year I’ll take it to the Laon His­toric, Le Mans Clas­sic, Isle of Wight Tri­umph week­end, Dutch Spit­fire week­end plus loads of UK Tri­umph events.’
