Triumph 1500 and 1500 TC
In 1970 The Triumph 1300 models were replaced by new models, the 2-door Toledo taking over the lower end of the market and the new 1500 model moving into a higher price bracket. The rear suspension was simplified (to save cost), the boot lengthened and new nose were given by Giovanni Michelotti. Under the bonnet the 1493cc 4-cylinder engine from the Triumph Spitfire 1500 was fitted in 61bhp form, uprated to 65bhp in 1972. The 1500 was replaced by the twin carb 1500 TC model in 1973, which was also re-engineered to go over to rear wheel drive. In 1976 the rear drive Dolomite 1500 and 1500 HL replaced the front drive Triumph 1500 and 1500 TC models, and production continued until the closure of the Canley factory in 1980.
