Strangely Appealing or Strangely Appalling? 1979 Triumph TR7

The wedge shaped Triumph TR7 launched in 1974 by the infamous British Leyland Motor Corp.  The TR7 was billed as “The Shape of Things to Come” – which was apt as British Leyland’s sales followed an sharp angle…directly into the ground.  The TR7 styling was penned by Harris Mann (known for his Austin Allegro and Princess work) and while it won’t win any beauty contests, it certainly checks all the boxes if you want something that is strangely appealing if you ask me. Find this 1979 Triumph TR7 offered for $6,500 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
