Triumph Dolomite sport saloon registered 9th May 1938. Fitted with 1767cc engine, overhead valves, synchromesh gearbox and hydraulic brakes from new. Waterfall grille is a major identifying unique feature of the car. From 1948 to 1974 the car was in Sussex and was featured in Veteran and Vintage magazine and registered with the same family. It then changed ownership and began a very comprehensive restoration including replacing the timber framework. The car appeared in Classic and Sports Car in September 2011 during restoration The car is now fitted with twin SU carburettors and a stainless steel exhaust system. The leather upholstery and carpets have been upgraded to compliment the beauty of this vehicle.
I have had the privelage of owning this rare car for 10 years and have in my opinion improved the vehicle including a partial respray of the paintwork to accentuate the beauty of the model. I have taken the car to a number of classic car shows and it gets amazing attention from everyone who has an interest in classic cars. Many people are unaware that the Dolomite name originated in the 1930's and I have had unbelievable conversations with people who previously owned a Dolomite but have not seen one for years. So the car is a rarity and beautiful. I am always amazed at the compliments the car is given and often people have their photos taken with the car and of the car from various angles. At one show last year the car's photo featured in the local newspapers. This car is registered with the Pre 1940 Triumph Motor Club who support the Triumph family with comprehensive help, advise and spare parts. I have decided to pass the car on to another enthusiast to enjoy due to recent family health issues . The car will be at Lytham Green classic car show on 18th June and can be viewed at my home by prior agreement . These vehicles are part of our heritage and need to be seen and enjoyed!
