In the spotlight: Triumph TR7 

Dundee Museum of Transport is delighted to announce that we now have a fantastic selection of rally cars on display for a limited time over winter!

One of the cars on loan is a super looking Triumph TR7, upgraded to a TR8. 

It was made by the now defunct British Leyland and contains a 3.5 v8 Rover engine with a Rover 5 Speed-box, fitted springs, suspension fitted with Gaz shock absorbersand an interior with half roll-cage special seats and seat belts. 

British Race Driver Tony Pond used many of these cars during the 1976-1978 World Rally Championships. Sadly, the TR8 series did not sell well but their popularity was well received in the rallies. 

There are eight rally cars for you to enjoy on your visit, with lots of information provided.  

The museum is currently open Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, 1030am – 330pm. Group visits can be arranged outside of these opening hours by appointment by emailing info@dmoft.co.uk with your preferred date and time.
