1980 Triumph Other TRThis is a converted TR7 with the rebuilt factory Rover V-8. The conversion has 2000 miles. The changes include an Edelbrock 500 carburetor, Mallory distributor, electronic ignition and electric radiator cooling fan.
All age related components: steering, suspension, and exhaust have been repaired or replaced. Tires, battery and alternator are new. Paint was renewed in recent years and the soft top is like new.
With the conversion TR8 exterior badges were applied, however while the car drives and handles like a factory TR8 it can not be titled as such.
** One might compare the eight cylinder Triumph to the far more expensive Sunbeam Tiger. Both do 0 to 60 in about eight seconds. Both are standing quarter mile in 16.3, however the Triumph top speed is a bit more...and it handles like a true sports car.
