Overview

The legendary Triumph TR series of sports cars is a long-time favourite among sports car collectors and enthusiasts. Over the years, those same people have come to rely on Motorbooks’ popular Original series volumes for getting all the details correct for TR identification, verification, and restoration. Now, for the first time, Motorbooks is offering all three of its Triumph TR books in one handy, updated volume, covering the iconic sports car’s entire run, from the TR2 of 1953 through to the TR8 of 1981. Author Bill Piggott, former archivist and principal registrar of the TR Register, has employed his unique access to Triumph’s archives in order to cover every detail of every model in the series. Exterior colours, mechanical systems, and all of the TR’s myriad small features are noted and profiled in detail. For this new edition, Piggott has provided updated information to ensure that this valuable resource is as accurate, reliable, and helpful as ever. Combined with the crisp, stunning images of automotive photographer Simon Clay, this volume in the Collector’s Originality Guide series contains all the information any collector, restorer, or enthusiast will want or need to be able to recognize—or re-create—the Triumph TR in all its glory.
