Description

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.

Bill practiced for many years as a lawyer, but now devotes most of his time to writing about classic cars and steam railways, as well as finding and renovating interesting vehicles. Since buying his first TR in 1970, he has owned examples of virtually every model.
