Born From Sportscars – 1958 Triumph TR10

January 26, 2014

There’s something perversely fascinating about little postwar European cars – perhaps it’s their size, or their simplicity, or just that their entire philosophy runs counter to what’s mainstream in North America. Think back to 1958 – and make those Wayne’s World doodley-doo flashback sounds while you do – or at least try to imagine what it was like. Fangio was kidnapped briefly by a group of Cuban revolutionaries, the peace symbol was designed, Elvis joined the service, NASA and transatlantic jet flights both launch, and Jello Biafra is born. The 1958 Chevrolet Impala was the best-selling car in the United States. Into this world, Triumph released the TR10, likely inspired by the success of cars such as the VW Beetle and Renault Dauphine. You can find this 1958 Triumph TR10 for sale in Long Beach, CA for $1500.
