Description

Beginning with the arrival of the company founder from Germany, this book tells the story of the early years, the rescue of the brand name by the Standard Motor Company following the Second World War and the inspired idea to use the Triumph name on a new sports car - the TR.  The Triumph TR cars were built on a minimal budget yet would go on to achieve significant success in motor sport and encompass a range of cars that would remain in one form of another for nearly thirty years.  Triumph TR - From Beginning to End gives a complete description of all models, competition success, a study of the derivative models, owners' accounts and living with a TR today.

The author

Following a successful career in the computer industry, redundancy permitted author Kevin Warrington to fulfill a long-held ambition to operate his own specialist coach company.  Based in Hampshire, he operated three 1950s-era motor coaches for weddings and private hire along with extensive film and TV work. An enthusiast for all vintage machinery, his interest in the subject was firmly established as a child when family visits involved journeys on Guy buses. An accomplished photogragher and writer, he has written books on classic transport subjects, and has been editor of specialist club magazines and an occasional contributor to classic car publications.
