Triumph TR7 Coke Car Goes to the 2010 MPH Show

Of only three examples ever made, just one survived and it is now prepared to be displayed at the upcoming 2010 MPH The Prestige & Performance Motor Show featuring Top Gear Live this November. We are talking here about the Triumph TR7 Coke Car, developed back in 1978 by Coca-Cola and Triumph.

Based on the 4 speed TR7 FHC, the Triumph TR7 Coke Car was converted by Star Vans of Luton. It has a red body paint with a flowing white line down the side and across the bonnet. The interior of the vehicle features a blue Levi denim upholstery with authentic patch pockets.

The Triumph TR7 Coke Car also comes with a 12 volt fridge in the boot, a TV in the glove compartment, sheepskin overmats; full length weathershield sunroof and a special edition 12" record called 'All Summer Long'.

Entrants to the original competition were asked to make as many words as possible (with at least four letters and no plurals or proper nouns) - from the expression 'All Summer'. The winner of this particular car reportedly came up with no less than 315 words.

"The 'Coke Car' is of its time. It sums up the 70's perfectly and is a mad mixture of Starsky and Hutch, Beach Boys and Top of the Pops themes,"
said Allen Forster, General Manager of TR Register, the car club for Triumph enthusiasts which owns the car.

"The MPH show is not just about the latest in supercars, but also unearthing fantastic quirky cars from yesteryear and the TR7 fits the bill perfectly,"
stated Kylie Lindsay, Marketing Communications Manager for MPH featuring Top Gear Live.
