The Triumph TR range has earned its place among the most popular sports cars of all time, with enthusiasts and owners on both sides of the Atlantic. The cars covered here range from the original, basic, four-cylinder TR2 of 1953, to the hairy-chested six-cylinder TR6 that finally bowed out of production in 1975, replaced by the unloved TR7.
The Triumph TR range is amongst the most popular of classic British sports cars on both sides of the Atlantic. “TRIUMPH TR - TR2 to 6: The last of the traditional sports cars”, as the title suggests, covers the cars from the basic four-cylinder TR2 introduced in 1953 to the hairy-chested six-cylinder TR6 that finally bowed out of production in 1975, to be replaced by the unloved TR7.
The previous edition of this popular book was well received, and had the following five star review published on Amazon.com:
“You can't go wrong buying a book from this author. I admit, I am a junkie for little British car books and this guy is up there with the other experts like Terry Horler on MG Midgets and Clausager on MGB's and Austin Healeys. Bill Piggott also has a book out on big Healeys ... A lot about Triumph TR and it's racing heritage is covered in this book and more pages devoted to the early TR's (2 and 3) than the six. Still, a very good read with lots of pictures ... from early dealer brochures to rally shots from across the pond. If you own a TR, you will want this book.” (Written by Dennis Silance)
[An] excellent reference 160 page hardback ... Warning: Even if you do not own one right now you might very well end up wanting on having read these trusty volumes.
Big End / All Torque
Well produced and put together, this book from Veloce’s Classic Reprint Series would certainly make a nice addition to a Triumph aficionado’s library.
There is plenty to satisfy the anorak and race/rally enthusiast alike in terms of facts and figures, while ... copiously illustrated.
… a useful guide containing plenty of information.
Classic & Sports Car
Starting with Buttercup and the TRX of the early post-war years, [this book] mixes the chronological history with specifications, period reviews and more, including period and studio photos to create one very comprehensive package on the separate-chassis TRs.
Over a quarter of a million TRs were sold, and around 60,000 of these still exist, cherished by their owners.
The most concise, yet full history of the cars produced so far.
The book contains loads of period archive photographs, many not previously published, including some rare 1950-60s colour material.
