Triumph Toledo, 1500TC and Dolomite (1970-1981) specifications

Triumph Toledo, 1500TC and Dolomite (1970-1981) specifications Classic and Performance Car

This cheap and simple saloon makes a fun and stylish starer classic 


Are you sitting comfortably? The Toledo was a 1300cc rear-wheel drive car that used the front-wheel-drive 1500’s body with a shorter nose and tail, but was launched at the same time. These rear-drive underpinning were used in the 1500’s replacement, the 1500TC, in 1973. That got the 1500’s full-length body. Both were renamed Dolomite in 1976, when you could have either 1300 or 1500 engines and rectangular headlamps, or, for driveway one-upmanship, the 1500HL with twin headlamps, more gauges and a better standard of trim. A cheap starter classic.
