1963-1977 TRIUMPH 2000 specifications Classic and Performance Car

The demise of the Standard brand saw the Vanguard’s replacement wearing a Triumph badge - and bearing no relation to its predecessor apart from the two-litre engine that was passed on. Michelotti’s styling took a brave leap into the Sixties, and Triumph now had a credible Rover 2000 rival with all-independent suspension in what would become known as the executive saloon class. A MkII arrived in 1969 with more of an edge to the styling, and longer bonnet and boot. Relatively few estates were built, but they make a practical and interesting classic if you can find one.
