Triumph Toledo
When the Herald ceased production a cheaper car was needed, so Project Manx II re-engineered the Triumph 1300 into a new 2-door Toledo model with short-tailed body, and a more expensive long-tailed car under Project Ajax III went on sale as the Triumph 1500 in 1970. A new nose were given by Giovanni Michelotti. Under the bonnet the 1296cc 4-cylinder engine from the Triumph 1300 continued, and in some markets there were versions with twin carb and 1500cc units; but economy was the real target. The Toledo continued in 2-door and from 1971 in 4-door form until 1976. In that year the Toledo was transformed into the new Dolomite 1300 with the long-tailed body from the Triumph 1500 (now rebranded Dolomite 1500) and production continued until the closure of the Canley factory in 1980.
