Police cars : Triumph

Like their counterparts Rover, Triumph had long been suppliers of cars to the Police, ableit less prodigiously, for many years prior to the 1968 merger. Here we see a couple of models that were still in demand during the 1970s.

It was at a time when policewoman were being transferred on to Road Traffic duties for the first time, and the Dolomites were allocated primarily for their use. To be honest, if you tried to shoehorn two rather large policeman in the front seats, space was a bit tight, but they were nice to drive
