1979 Triumph TR7

The Triumph TR7 was introduced in 1975 and continued the sports persona of its preceding TR5 and TR6 siblings. It abandoned the tradition separate chassis, six-cylinder engine, and independent rear suspension setup of the prior TR5 and 6, and replaced it with a 2-liter SOHC four-cylinder engine. The suspension was comprised of MacPherson struts at the front and a live axle at the rear. A five-speed manual gearbox was standard, an automatic transmission was optional, and a Convertible joined the original Coupe version in 1979. Its exterior design was 'wedge' shaped and was commonly advertised as 'The Shape of Things to Come.'
