Triumph Acclaim

Overview

The Triumph Acclaim was significant in so many ways, it is difficult to understand why it has such a rough ride in the classic press.
It proved that the BL workers could screw together a car as well as their Japanese counterparts; it was the first Anglo-Japanese production car,
also it proved to be the final Triumph ever made. Pleasant to drive with Honda running gear, reliable like no other BL car of the time, but it was too cramped for European families, and soon proved itself as a rampant ruster.
Still very reasonable to buy with prices on the up do not leave it too late to get one.
Very economical with some Acclaims having covered mega miles they really are a modern classic with so few left on our roads.
Look out for luxury Avon models and ultra rare Avon Turbo the holy grail of all Acclaim models.
