Trident Cars Ltd were a British car manufacturer based originally in Woodbridge, then in Ipswich, Suffolk between 1966 and 1974, and again after being restarted in 1976 from premises in Ipswich. The new company stopped production in 1977 – 78.
The Venturer was the second car Trident produced in 1969, Only 84 Venturer’s were released, making this car extremely rare. A quick search will identify this vehicle is the only Trident Venturer currently for sale.
The Trident was intended to be a new TVR model when it was launched during the 1965 Geneva Motor show. Due to TVR experiencing financial problems, the project looked to be prematurely aborted, until a TVR dealer, Bill Last, stepped in and started to produce the vehicle under the name Trident.
The body was designed by Trevor Fiore (who was later director of design for Citroen) and the prototype built by Fiore in Italy. Production in the UK started in 1966. In 1969 a new model was presented, which showed some cosmetic updates, but the main change was now the use of the Triumph TR6 chassis. The Venturer, as the new model became known was fitted with a 3 litre Ford Essex V6 (from the Capri) and with independent rear suspension and the less brutish engines, it became a more civilised car to deal with.
This Venturer has covered just 72000 miles and comes with V5C and a book detailing the cars history.
This car is the personal vehicle of one of the owners of PIE Performance who are a leading Independent Porsche service, repair and sales specialist.
