ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION (1959): “ . The Triumph Company has apparently always been in a hurry to get from one place to another. It began as a manufacturer of cycles back in the leisurely days of 1895. Triumph had established an excellent reputation for its motorcycles. Before World War I they had earned the rather apt sobriquet: “Frisky.” One can well imagine that with speedy, reliable motorcycles tooling about the countryside making a name for themselves, a light car would loom next on the horizon for Triumph. This was exactly the case. In 1931, the Triumph Cycle Company, having at last decided that they were in the automobile business for good, shortened their name to The Triumph Company.” The legendary TR series of sports cars, competition results, tuning and maintenance for everyday and racing.
