‘I always get the “nice Dolomite mate” - I can’t help but put them right by telling them it’s a Toledo’. Andrew Jones Turton‘s 1973 example is now an unusual sight, but in their heyday, they were the Triumph that you were most likely to encounter outside of the Co-op.

It is almost inevitably the case with cars that belong to an elaborate hierarchy that the most expensive versions are the ones that capture the public imagination; the Hillman Avenger Tiger, the Ford Escort RS1600 and RS2000 Mk. I and the Dolomite Sprint.
‘I’ve always liked the ‘30s and ‘40s look of British cars - the sound, the leather, the body lines - but had only owned ‘70s Triumph Dolomites! Approaching retirement from Sussex Police, I started to look for the next Classic’.

We live and breathe classics and this is shown through our commitment in sponsoring the UK’s largest classic car event, the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show.
‘There’s a lot of pointing, and saying wow!’, for a car such as Jake Clappison’s 1979 Triumph Spitfire 1500 is always going to cause a minor sensation when it is out and about. Firstly, there is that Inca Yellow paint finish, secondly it is in stunning condition and thirdly, the Spitfire must be one of the most handsome British sports cars ever made.
‘The Sprint must be the answer to many people’s prayers’. That is what Autocar thought of the latest Triumph back in July 1973, as the scribe raved about the ‘quite impeccable’ manners and how it was a ‘tremendously satisfying car to drive’. Today, thousands of enthusiasts would agree with those words.
It would be fair to say that the 1300 is one of Triumph’s most significant post-war models – it was their first front wheel drive car and it was a prime example of their saloons, which were as important to their brand image as their sports cars.
