Triumph TR7 Wedge - Cold Start - Startup
Starting my British classic 1980 Triumph TR7 Roadster (30th Anniversary edition) after sitting in non-heated barn for six months during winter. Gettin' her ready for some spring driving and more car shows! Has manual choke conversion from Victoria British 3:45 (had the original BEESWAX thermo-choke when I bought the car, which was completely rotted!) If you wanna skip the lead-up, the actual start is at about 4:00.





1981 Triumph TR8 STK # 598
Here is an extremely rare British sports car, the Triumph TR8. Considered by many to be "The English Corvette" the 1981 Triumph TR8 was the last of the Triumph breed and only around 2,300 were ever built. This one has been meticulously restored and has had many major upgrades to enhance its performance. Call it a TR8 restomod. Weighing in at only 2,700 pounds this car is an absolute blast to drive. Has a non-original but much better performing Oldsmobile performance V8. Full custom Exhaust system and an aftermarket sound system have been added as well. The five speed manual gearbox shifts smoothly, rowing through the gears in this car is sure to put a smile on your face. Aftermarket wheels cover custom Wilwood disc brakes that have been added to give your peace of mind with the increased power on tap. This is a very nicely restored car with a straight body, mint condition interior, and high quality paint job. This one is truly one of a kind! Call us at 866-542-8392 for more details.





1981 Triumph TR8 fuel system diagnosis.
Car started dying out, and I suspected a fuel delivery problem. So out came the gauge to test, listen closely you can hear the pump whining. The fuel pressure gauge just started acting up in this vid, the pressure reading should of been lower, but it was sticking! Time to get a new one.

This is Triumph
Like many auto companies, Triumph started out making bicycles but like the others found a new life in the four wheel world. Known mainly for its sports cars the company also produced family cars but it was the roadsters that got the attention. Unfortunately, the company dissolved along with the rest of British Leyland and the brand's name is now owned by BMW.
