A name synonymous with classic, sport, quality and integrity, Triumph still remains a fundamental cog in the classic machinery of today’s enthusiasts.
Two companies with established pedigrees were brought together in 1945 by Sir John Black, then Chairman of the Standard Motor Company, to form Standard-Triumph International.
Inspired By Triumph
The inspired use of the Triumph brand, initially on a conventionally designed saloon, and then on a world beating range of sports cars that immediately gained success in competition, created a strong desire for the brand amongst enthusiastic motorists who appreciated its style and engineering.
Changing use of language led to the Standard name being discontinued, with all models subsequently sold as Triumphs.
Every Model Produced
This fascinating book takes an in-depth look at every model produced by the company from 1945 until the end of production in 1984 with the Triumph Acclaim; a car sometimes derided by purists, but the car that paved the way for co-operation between the remains of the former British Leyland behemoth and Honda of Japan.
Each model is fully illustrated, and described with comprehensive technical detail.
