The British Company, TVR of Blackpool, created three examples of the Trident. Clipper examples that followed were built by Trident Cars, Ltd., of Woodbridge, Suffolk.

The early examples were offered in two series - the Cipper which used essentially the same running gear as the AC Cobra, and the Venturer which used a British Ford three-liter V-6. Both the Trident and the Venturer had similar body shells that were designed by Fiore working with Fissore of Turin, Italy. Though similar, they did have their differences.

The entire production run of various Trident models reached 125 cars. The car displayed at the 1967 Racing car Show at Earls Court, London had several visual differences. It had a one piece nose section that opens in entirety for easy access. This design was exclusive to the first four cars.

This car, chassis number H3/271/676GT, was discovered in Texas in original condition. It was given a restoration from Skip McCabe of Illinois that cost $70,000.

This car has covered a lifetime total of 6,800 miles and the engine is original to the chassis. It has had only three owners from new. It is finished in Ferrari Rosso Chiaro with black Connally leather interior.

The car features Anglo-American running gear with a light-weight Italian body. It was shown at the 1996 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance as well as the Meadow Brook Concours in Michigan.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. The car was estimated to sell for $50,000 - $70,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $39,600 inclusive of buyer's premium.
