Default 1929 Triumph seven

My team recently restored a 1929 Triumph 7 that is owned by one of my friends. This is quite a rare car.Engine: Triumph 4 cyl. 832cc 7.9 hp Year: 1929. There are only 120 sevens in the world that have survived. These are mainly in England, Australia & NZ. The car basically was not in good shape. Chassis was corroded badly, woodwork in very bad shape, doors & body needed attention. Upholstery & woodwork were made new. New Paint work & Plating were done.Mechanically, engine is just OK, but the brakes, electricals, radiator, were overhauled.

Yes you are right. It was in the same stable as your Standard 8. Wooden dash may not be OE. But the owners just wanted a nicely finished, running car.
