1979 Triumph TR7 Review

Tr7 Convertible — Light car, snappy performance, unique styling, great fuel mileage I use premium fuel in my convertible. Car is very roomy for two, mine is the DHC (convertible) and is great fun in the summer in Wisconsin. Great investment NADA value has gine up each year of the 5 years I have owned mine.


Cons: Small oil leaks, hey it's British

1979 Triumph TR7 Review

It's A Low To Te Ground Roadster, Convertible. — Bad in winter in MN. But who cares, hung up on snow drifts, had to run heat with the top down in winter, electrical was a little kooky. But got lots of looks !!

Pros: Fun car

Cons: expensive parts

It's A Triumph... — ...when everything works. But it's a fun little car! Lucas electrics that work when you don't need them to. Carburetors that you have to maintain every time it rains. Or every time it snows. Or every time it Thursdays. But it has a limited slip rear end, and once you get things taped together it goes well until something comes unglued. You have to love british cars to even tolerate owning a TR7.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It's unique!

Cons: Lucas electrics, Zenith carbs
