The Triumph Super 7 was a car manufactured from 1927 to 1934 by the Triumph Motor Company. It was produced as a response to the success of the Austin 7 and was Triumph’s first car to be made in large numbers. In 1933 the name was changed to the Triumph Super 8.

A range of body styles were available, all made in house. There was a two-door four-seat tourer, followed by a de-luxe tourer with two-coloured body, a two-seater with dickey seat, a two-door saloon, a fabric-bodied saloon and at the top of the range, a coach built saloon. Gordon England could also supply a special fabric-bodied saloon with sliding roof. The chassis was also supplied to other coachbuilders for fitting their own bodies. Prices ranged from £113 for the chassis to £190 for the Gordon England saloon. On test the car could reach just over 50 mph (80 km/h) and return 40 miles per imperial gallon (7.1 L/100 km; 33 mpg‑US).

Craner Classics are pleased to offer this extremely rare Triumph Super 7 Tourer which has been the subject of a full nut and bolt chassis off restoration.

The car comes complete with 3 box files full of service records, original buff log book and photographic records of the restoration.

The chassis and 10 spoke wheels have all been powder coated to a high standard during the restoration.
