BMIHT Reference Number:

Code: A153492

A compilation of classic films from the Archives of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust re-mastered for DVD.

The controversial wedge-shaped sports car from British Leyland caused consternation among Triumph TR enthusiasts when it was launched. Its pop-up headlights and fixed roof still divide opinion today.

A Touch of the Devil (1975)
This quirky film was British Leyland’s answer to the challenge of promoting their unusual design to the all-important American market. The plot revolves around a New York salesman transported to the Speke factory in Liverpool by an attractive ‘witch’ in the style of the then popular US TV programme ‘Bewitched’.

Buffam & Co (1977)
The TR7 goes rallying in the USA with husband and wife team John and Vicki Buffam.

Tour de Corse (1977)
A fascinating contemporary record of the punishing progress of two TR7s through the Corsican landscape, featuring rally driver Brian Culcheth.

Triumph – A Sporting Success (1979)
The Triumph TR7 V8 enjoying success on the Ypres, Manx and Mintex rallies during 1978-9. Among the drivers featured are Tony Pond and Murray Walker.

Total running time approximately 91 minutes
