Approximately 3,000 of these cars were made before Triumph closed its doors.
Most made it to the United States and not that many exist any more.
This car is not to be confused with the TR7 which looks similar but has a
four cylinder powerplant.
It is a fun car to drive and own. The paint job is shiny enough to see your
own reflection in. The engine is smooth and powerful. I have all pertinent
records and manuals for the vehicle. I'm the second owner and I've had it
I'm asking $12,000 or Best Offer on this "not too many of a kind" jewel.
The car was written up a few years ago in Car and Driver as one of the
10 most collectible cars. Needless to say, the value of this car can only
go up as the years go. This is an investment worth considering.
I've enjoyed this car from the start but it's time to move on to other
things. Serious inquiries only please.
