Lot 5 - 1982 Triumph TR7
|Odometer reading||58,200 miles|
The Triumph TR7 was launched in 1975 as the successor to the TR6 and to continue the TR blood line. When the TR7 was introduced it was only available as a fixed head coupe. It was not until 1979, with the long awaited arrival of the convertible, that there was more than one body style to choose from. This low mileage TR 7 Roadster has covered a mere 58,000 miles from new and has been subject to a total body and mechanical rebuild from April 2005 to February 2009. During this period a number of sensible upgrades were commissioned including a road camshaft, stage one cylinder head, full suspension and brake upgrades, lightened and balanced flywheel, performance exhaust system and conversion to fuel injection, which was only available on very late TR7s for export. Evidently, thousands of pounds have been spent to get the car into its current condition with a detailed folder outlining every penny spent with the last owner.
Finished in Cashmere Gold with matching tan interior, this very late TR7, built in the last week of production, comes complete with MoT test certificate until May 2011 and a large collection of past certificates from 1990 onwards. Offered at no reserve, this stylish Triumph convertible is ready for many more years of open-top motoring with its new owner.
