Triumph Tr7: The Untold Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

By the mid 1970s the two popular sports cars produced by the new British Leyland were showing their age.  What the company needed was a smart, modern sports car.  The TR7, designed to replace both the MGB and the Triumph TR6, was the result.  Its wedge-shaped design was modern enough but much of the rest of the car was, for some, disappointingly conventional and press reaction was not universally warm.  Initially available as a two-seat coupe, the car went on sale in Britain in 1974. David Knowles unravels the history of the car's design and production, and the chaos that was caused by British Leyland's notorious strikes and labour problems.  He also delves deep into the competition history of the car.  Including the later TR7 drophead, and the V8-powered TR8, this book is the last word on the car that is probably more popular today than at any time since it ceased production in 1981.
