1980 Triumph Other

Nicely restored, ust free 1980 Triumph TR7 in the perfect British roadster color combo. I have a 10-car car collection and I'm selling a few of my cars this month to make room in the garage for some new additions this spring. My collection leans mostly to Saabs and Volvo's so the Brits are the ones leaving.
I purchased this TR7 from a "Triumph guy" (he had 5 Triumph's in his collection) a couple of years ago. To be brutally honest, remember when these first came out in the 1970's and I thought they were ugly. Since then the look has kind of grown on me and after reading a great story about a road trip in one in Sports & Exotic car magazine, had to have one. I was quite surprised at how comfortable a driver they are...the 5-speed transmission makes it a practical car for around town and on the highway. And for the price- in my book the TR7 is THE best value anywhere for a European roadster.

My cars are babied. All of them are always garaged, nder a cover and on a trickle charge when not being driven. This is a no-nonsense, o-issues, onest and affordable British roadster that would fit right in at the next car show.
