The entire production of the new dollar- earning Triumph TR4 Sports Car has been transferred to what is claimed to be the longest sports car assembly line in the world, which is housed in Standard- Triumph’s new assembly plant at Coventry.
The line is over 200 yards in length, and has stations for 46 units. This latest move is rapidly boosting sports car output towards the target figure of 500 units per week, in an all-out effort to fulfill orders received from throughout the world -and notably the $57m. order received from Standard-Triumph Motor Co. Inc. in New York. the company says.
