A model-by-model history of the popular Triumph Dolomite family, the range of quality sporting saloons that started with the Triumph 1300 and was in production from 1965-80.
The Triumph 1300 was innovative, with front-wheel drive and a four-door body designed by Giovanni Michelotti. In 1970 the Triumph 1500 and the three-door Toledo were introduced, followed by the range-topping Dolomite in 1972, with Triumph's slant-4 overhead cam engine and rear-wheel drive. The fast Dolomite Sprint confirmed Triumph's position as the British "BMW Beater" in 1973, with its powerful 16-valve engine and value achieved through clever engineering. In 1976 the whole range was renamed "Dolomite" - and was a well-rounded model spread of four-door saloons, with engine sizes from 1300cc to 2 litres.
With technical specifications and many photographs, this book also includes competition history, the Dolomites' ancestors, and a guide to buying and owning these iconic saloons.
