Triumph Sports 1954-81 market review

Early Triumph sports cars continue to gain value while the TR7 provides an affordable entry point. One car at $80,000 helped keep the average for ‘side-screen’ models at around $50,000.

Paying $40-45,000 is realistic if you’re looking for a tidy TR4 or fuel-injected TR6. The TR5 is scarce and seeing more than a couple in our market was unusual.

| Buyer's Guide: 1979-81 Triumph TR8

Spitfires and derivative GT6 coupes are holding value despite a reduced supply of cars.

Not as many TR7s about this year either and prices were up a little. TR8s need to be in good condition and genuine [not TR7s with a transplant] to justify prices above $20,000.

Spitfire $16,375 [8]

TR2/3/3A $50,940 [4]

TR4/4A $41,445 [12]

TR5 PI $70,625 [4]

TR6 PI $41,320 [10]

TR7 $9615 [9]

TR8 $18,225 [2]
