When and How Will the World End Triumph Cars Depression and Its Cure
1977 Triumph Spitfire 1500 Roadster
|The Triumph Motor Company first got its start by selling bicycles in London in 1885. The company
was founded by Siegfried Bettmann and Moritz Schulte. It wasn't until 1919 that the company sold its first car.
By the 1930's the company changed its name to the now Triumph Motor Company.
The Triumph Motor Company was small and could not compete with the large car companies so they decided to make a special expensive car that would appeal to those with money who wanted something different from the masses. Unfortunately the company had financial problems and had to sell off their bike and motorcycle business and finally the company was sold to T.W. Ward in 1939.

It wasn't until 1946 that the Triumph car went into full production again starting with the Triumph Roadster. The Roadster was made mostly of aluminum because of the steal shortage caused by the war. The last Triumph automobile the "Acclaim" was produced in 1981.
Now a lot of the older Triumph cars are collector's items. On this page you will find them for sale besides service manuals and parts. Some of the cars for sale are the triumph 675, Triumph TR, TR3, TR4, TR4a, TR6, TR7, TR8 among others.
