1938 Triumph Dolomite

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]


A brief history of the Triumph Dolomite models - 1936 to 1940

Between 1936 and 1940 Triumph made a large range of Dolomite saloons, sporting saloons, drophead coupes and roadster coupes.

All these Dolomites were powered by Triumph's own 4 or 6 cylinder overhead valve engines.

Dolomites were easily identified, from Triumphs other models, by their flamboyant 'waterfall' radiator grilles which were subtly modified during their 4 year production run.

This is One of only Three remaining in England.

Seen here at St Bartholomew's Church Binley, Coventry, after the wedding ceremony, waiting for the Bride and Groom.

Hello Tonia, how are you my friend?

I have added the tag 'Old Timer' thanks to you

I visit your gallery often, although I havn't left any comments on your pictures recently.

In fact I tend to remain in the background!

My very best wishes to you and your family,

WOW!!! You dont see 1938 Triumph Dolomites every day. Great shot Grey Eagle.

A superb saloon car, made with phantasy, not designed for a world market. The radiator grille is so gracefulness, that means the developer wanted to show their own character. Thank you for showing this rare car, all the best Reinhard
