TRIUMPH DOLOMITE 1300 £2,251
Replacing the Toledo, the Dolomite 1300 has the long-tailed body with the larger luggage boot and bigger fuel tank common to the whole Dolomite range, which now comprises 1300, 1500, 1500 HL, 1850 HL and 2-litre Sprint. All models now have Dolomite front suspension with anti-roll bar and 4½-in. road wheels, plus head restraints, laminated windscreen, retractable radio aerial, pile carpets and improved seat slides.
TRIUMPH DOLOMITE SPRINT £3,597
Victory in the British Touring Car Championship is one of the sporting successes that have helped to establish the Sprint as an impressive sports saloon. With its ingenious 16-valve cylinder head the engine is an outstanding 2-litre unit. Twin exhausts, cast alloy wheels, front air dam, and vinyl top are other features. There are anti-roll bars at front and rear for stability in fast driving.
TRIUMPH 2000 TC £3,347
The venerable Triumph six-cylinder saloons with bodies designed by Michelotti have undergone many changes both in 2-litre and 2½-litre forms. The 2-litre has a twin-carburetter engine and the four-speed gearbox can be supplemented by a Laycock overdrive operating on third and top gears. A Borg Warner automatic transmission can be had instead. Power-assisted steering and tinted glass can also be supplied.
TRIUMPH 2500S £4,117
Most comprehensively equipped of all the big Triumph saloons. the 2500S has overdrive, power-assisted steering, alloy wheels and improved suspension. The instrument panel is in walnut veneer, upholstery is in high grade cloth, front seats have head restraints and inertia reel safety harness. All Triumph sixes this year have had modified manifolds and carburetter changes for higher power and torque with greater economy.
TRIUMPH SPITFIRE £2,184
Though 75 per cent go to North America, the Spitfire will also attract extra attention across the Channel now that MGs have been withdrawn from European markets. De luxe options and laminated windscreens have been standardised this year, increasing the appeal of a lively little sports car in traditional British style. Independent rear suspension with compensator to quell oversteer ensures good roadholding.
TRIUMPH STAG From £4,099
The attractive Michelotti-styled 2+2 Stag is unchanged for 1976, the V8-engined roadster retaining the built-in safety roll-bar and provision for hardtop, as well as its inbuilt soft hood. The three-litre engine with its single overhead camshaft to each cylinder bank, is available with manual/overdrive gearbox or fully-automatic transmission. The svelte bodywork carries a double coachline along the waistline, and the recessed tail-panel is finished matt black. Air-conditioning is an optional extra, and side windows are electrically-operated as standard. The roll-bar is padded for safety.
