This engaging book begins with the history of the Triumph, its rescue by the Standard Motor Company and the quest to replace the bestselling Herald with a more modern design. The author also discusses the strong influence of the Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti. The book covers the full range of models that succeeded the successful Triumph Herald. Starting with the front-wheel-drive 1300 and 1500 models, the author covers the conversion from front to rear-wheel drive, the introduction of the two-door Toledo and four-door Dolomite range and finishes with the range-topping high performance but fragile Dolomite Sprint. The book includes new photographs of each model. Also including coverage of the Dolomite's strong sporting history, and with accompanying period photographs, this book provides all the information the enthusiast will need about this remarkable range of mid-range Triumph cars.
