The Triumph Super Nines and Tens were developed from the earlier Super Sevens and were manufactured between 1932 and 1934. Larger in size to their predecessors, they were the first to use the Coventry Climax designed engine, which Triumph built under license in their Coventry factory. Saloons, sporting open bodied tourers and even some commercial vehicles were also produced on these chassis. Discovered in a barn on the Upton House Estate in 1985, the Triumph had formerly been the property of Harold Astly, chauffeur to the 3rd Viscount Bearsted. It was registered in his name on retirement in the 1950’s, and it is believed to have been a gift or sold to him by the Samuel family. First registered as KV 3479 on the 21st December 1932, after its discovery in 1985, this scarce Triumph Super Nine was subsequently well cared for, attending many rallies with the Pre-1940 Triumph Motor Club. Sadly when the previous owner passed away, the car stood for 18 months, recommissioned by the present owner in 2016, it is In remarkably original condition, the light commissioning works undertaken to maintain its running condition, has resulted in the Coventry Climax engine starting and running easily, the brake hydraulics have been rebuilt. A large history file accompanies the car and includes some interesting history, noted in a column from The Automobile in April 1992, invoices and photographs. This Triumph Super Nine is one of only 13 known surviving Super Nines displaying their original aluminium coachwork over an ash frame, unusually the car is pictured on the Wikipedia page for the Triumph Super Nine.
The car is in delightful mellowed condition, having led a sheltered life, the aluminium coachwork is in good original condition for the age, and mechanically, the car fitted with the Coventry Climax engine built under licence by Triumph, performs well, within the limits of its 1018cc capacity. The interior is extremely original, with the original leather seats, door panels, headlining, and with the original sun roof still in operation.
The four-door coachwork presents well in blue and is complimented with a lovely patinated brown leather interior and exquisite details such as the British Jaeger odometer and Roman numeral clock
The interior is complete with original brown leather seats, door panels, headlining and sunroof. It retains its original Jaeger odometer and Roman numeral clock.
In good mechanical condition, having been used regularly over the last three years, and with the hydraulic brakes have been recently overhauled. A large history file accompanies the car.
