Lot 300 - 1932 Triumph Super Nine Saloon
|Odometer reading||4,211 miles|
|Result||Sold - £5,600|
The Triumph Super Nines and Tens were developed from the earlier Super Sevens and were manufactured between 1932 and 1934. Larger in size to their predecessors, they were the first to use the Coventry Climax designed engine, which Triumph built under license in their Coventry factory. Saloons, sporting open bodied tourers and even some commercial vehicles were also produced on these chassis.
This Triumph Super Nine has been in the same ownership since 2010 whereby it was lovingly cared for, attending many rallies with the Pre-1940 Triumph Motor Club. Sadly, the owner passed away and the car stood for 18 months. In remarkably original condition, the Triumph has recently had light commissioning works undertaken to maintain its running condition, with the Climax engine starting and running easily. The four-door coachwork presents well in blue and is complimented with a lovely patented brown leather interior and exquisite details such as the British Jaeger odometer and Roman numeral clock. A large history file accompanies the car and includes some interesting history, noted in a column from The Automobile in April 1992, invoices and photographs. Offered with no reserve, this Triumph Super Nine is one of 13 known surviving Super Nines displaying their original aluminium coachwork over an ash frame and awaits a new loving owner to enjoy, and perhaps, take this little car to the next level.
