That Triumphant Feeling

Just like MG’s, Triumph is one of those wonderfully quintessential British car makers that parent company British Leyland, left to die, suffering a sad and undignifed death.Unlike MG however, Triumph never made a return.Happily as quality upmarket classics, the name lives on and the marque is arguably the most popular on the block.One of the chief reasons for the brand’s survival is due to the unstinting support of an army of model specifications and general marque owners’ clubs,all determined to keep the name alive.

This ensures that Triumphs are some of the easiest classics to keep on the road.Having said that, certain models are far easier than others due to their popularity and therefore parts supply – none more so than the strain of TRs and the Stag.That’s not to say that owning something like a Herald, 2.5PI estate or Dolomite 1500 is hard work, because mechanically many models used common parts; diffculty lies in items such as trim and things that are much harder to fnd,where as you can almost make a new TR from scratch.This special buying guide covers all post-war models that includes traditional sports cars and luxury saloons at prices to suit all level of budgets.

There genuinely is a classic Triumph out there that’s just right for you and at the right price!Best advice is to go along to a classic car show to see them in the flesh and talk to their owners.And once you’ve bought your chosen Triumph, join an owners’ club to enjoy a great social scene that willmake car ownership doubly desirable.Happy hunting!
