KDU 366N - ACG5

This is the oldest known production RHD Triumph TR7 known to exist - it was part of the first 'test' batch then Triumph produced prior to the launch of the TR7 outside North America. However, the history of these early cars is somewhat murky but here is what we know.

This car left the production line on 18th June 1975, it was designated with VIN number ACG 5 (ACG was the prefix given to the fixed-head coupes that were destined for UK, Europe and Australia).

As we have no information on ACG1-4 then this is logically the oldest known.

On leaving the line it was noted to be fitted with engine number CG 7 HE - an 8-valve 1998cc slant engine - and a 4 speed gearbox - numbered 4833. Its axle was the standard early 4-speed type - numbered CG5412.

However, this is where this car took a slightly unusual turn when it was shipped off to the Sales and Service Training Centre immediately it left the line.

What happened here is not recorded in the vehicle's comprehensive notes, but when it left their hands it sported a 16-valve Sprint engine (as used on the early Rally cars prior to fitting of the V8), a 5-speed gearbox and axle, and some smart new decal Sprint side stripes.

The 5-speed gearbox that was fitted to this car was numbered 341 (an incredibly low serial number!). It was then transferred to the Unipart parts division of British Leyland at Cowley on the 18th May 76 (European launch date) and it is here where it is believed to have acquired the early small Webasto sunroof - Unipart then kept the car for a year before selling off to its first private owner in 1977.


It had always been Triumph's intention to produce several different engines for the TR7 but due to financial cutbacks this was not implemented. There were a small number of TR7 Sprints produced and of course there were the Rally cars and this development car.


So after being modified by the factory the car was eventually sold off and, like any used car, eventually reached the end of its useful working life. At this point it was parked up in a farmer's field and effectively left to the elements.

However, a few years ago the car was tracked down by the then TRDC registrar John Wood who realised that this car should be saved and a quick phone call to Roy Hankins (the current TRDC TR7 registrar and early Speke aficionado ) and the car was lifted from its resting place of many years and the painstaking restoration began.

The car then was next owned by Dr Christopher K. Smith who is the archivist for the model and he shortly completed the car to its original factory state as it is today .

We are proud to own and offer this car for sale and it is a rare chance to acquire a real piece of TR7 history - I’m sorry but the price is the price or it stays as part of my personal collection .

Please contact me for more details if required but most of this cars history is well documented on Google etc and with the TR7 Register .
