When launched just over 40 years ago, many enthusiasts didn’t know quite what to make of the TR7 but all agreed that it needed to be roofless to really be hailed as a true TR. Sadly, by the time Triumph took a hacksaw to the ungainly looking coupé (during a lunch break rumour has it), for 1980, the car was living on borrowed time and lasted just a couple of more years so the TR7’s potential was never fully realised. Some argue that the TR7 was more a replacement for the GT6 rather than TR6 anyway and its character suggests this is possibly so, but this misunderstood Triumph has its merits, chiefly a great cockpit environment, good comfort and refinement way above past TRs, secure handling (ditto), fair performance and economy and Dolomite saloon running costs. Add great value for money and strong owners’ club support and perhaps it’s time to take a fresh look at the 40 something TR7 (see backpage bargain in this issue-ed).
