Sellers original description:
This 9,800 mile, from new, TR7 Fixed Head Coupe was first registered on the 1st of August 1981 by Patrick Motors of Birmingham and was then put straightway on display in their very famous Patrick Motor Museum,where the car stayed for the next 14 years.The car was then sold to a lady antique dealer, when the car had covered just 2,400 miles.
The car was then kept, by the lady, for the next 18 years in a heated and carpeted garage. During this time the car was used very sparingly, covering a mere 7000 miles,being used a 3rd car. The Triumph now having done just a total 9,800 miles from new.
Early TR7s were built at BLs Liverpool plant at Speke, during which time the car did not enjoy the best reputation for quality. This problem was cured by moving assembly back to the Midlands, finishing up at the Rover plant in Solihull. This particular example was built in the last year of production at the Solihull plant.
Finished in its original colour of Triton metallic green with beige check cloth and vinyl interior.The car comes with a factory fitted sun roof, later type alloy wheels, 70s type radio cassette, electric Ariel and 5 speed gear box.
The history file contains a letter from the lady confirming the mileage of the car from new,original bill of sale, all MOTs going back to 1995 and a service log from Patrick motors detailing mileage readings from new,all of which make fascinating reading.
This is possibly the lowest mileage TR7 in captivity and would grace any Museum or Triumph aficionado's collection.
