Full Description

1979 Triumph TR7 Coupe

Rare to find Coupe; very clean and smart with just over 100k showing; five owners from new; MOT Oct 2021 although Tax and MOT exempt

This crisp and nicely prepared TR7 came into the hands of the vendor early last year. When he spotted it for sale, he simply couldn't resist, but admits now that his 'eyes are a bigger than his garage' and so it needs to move on.

Supplied with recent history detailing restoration work undertaken in 2015/16, it had spent the previous 10 years in storage. Its owner, a self confessed professional mechanic spent £2,052 on parts alone, the work extending to a full engine strip and rebuild as well as numerous small parts and details.

This work has stood the test of time well, the car having been driven some 50+miles to the sale. The car as purchased had an aftermarket set of alloys fitted, but came with the original wheels and fittings which have been refurbished and put back on the car with new tyres. The file includes a current V5c showing 10 previous keepers and five old MOTs, the current 'no advisory' ticket running until October 2021 although of course it is both Tax and MOT exempt.

The MOT history online suggests the mileage is correct, the odometer having just tipped over the 100,000 mile mark.

Well presented and with a smart interior too, the survival rate of the the Coupe version seems significantly less than its rag-top sibling which is a pitty as they offer a classic '70s wedge shape which has stood the test of time better than most.
