1981-1984 TRIUMPH Acclaim specifications

1981-1984 TRIUMPH Acclaim specifications Classic and Performance Car

The Triumph Acclaim was significant in so many ways, it’s difficult to understand why it has such a rough ride in the classic press. It proved that the BL workers could screw together a car as well as their Japanese counterparts; it was the first Anglo-Japanese production car; and it proved to be the final Triumph ever made. Pleasant to drive with Honda running gear, and reliable like no other BL car of the time, but it was too cramped for European families, and soon proved itself as a rampant ruster. Cheap to buy, and still reliable – look out for luxury Avon models…
