Classic Car Auctions says:

A cheerful Triumph Dolomite Sprint reading 57,130 miles...The Triumph Dolomite was a popular small saloon car produced by the Triumph Motor Company division of the British Leyland Corporation in Canley, Coventry between October 1972 and August 1980. Although the Dolomite proved to be refined and rapid, competitors such as the BMW 2002 had a performance advantage which was costing Triumph dearly, both in terms of sales and prestige. To remedy this, Triumph unveiled the Dolomite Sprint in June 1973.

This car was first registered in the UK in March 1979, subsequently exported to Ireland in 2006 and was recently re-imported back to the UK. We are told that the car has previously been restored and is said to present in lovely condition. This car will be UK re-registered before the sale and is supplied with a fresh MoT certificate valid until February 2017. There were less than 650 Dolomite Sprints licensed or SORN in the UK last year so the cars are becoming an increasingly rare sight on our roads but, more importantly, they are great fun to drive.
