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.
Unbelievable. An urban legend? No, its real. Lambrecht Chevrolet, a dealership in business from shortly after World War II until the mid-nineteen nineties, is selling off a collection of 500 cars amassed over that period, most period trade-ins that were kept instead of being sold. If that is not special enough, about 50 of the cars have less than 11 miles (yes 11) on them as they were never sold by the dealership when new. This one, a 1958 Chevrolet pickup, has only 5.4 miles on the odometer.
