The TR7 (along with the V8 powered TR8) represents the last major model variant in the famous TR line from Triumph which began in 1953 with the TR2. The TR7’s radical departure in design from previous TR models with its controversial “Wedge” shape has always hindered its desirability as a collectible sports car when compared with it older siblings. However, as with almost every car out there, there is a core group of enthusiasts that do appreciate the TR7.
The seller of this California black plate 1952 MG TD lists it as an original paint car which caught our attention. This is almost unheard of on any British car from this era so if it is the case that would be very special. However, the seller’s description is very thin and the original paint claim is scaled back to an “appears to be” descriptor. The repainted gas tank is one thing even the seller admits to.
