Welcome to all members of the Pre-1940 Triumph Motor Club, and also to all interested parties, (who can feel free to apply for membership of our club as members or associate members. Our worldwide club, is dedicated to those who own, or have an interest in pre-1940 Triumph cars, inclusive of the Vale and Vernon Crossley marques which are based on the Triumph mechanical parts.
The club is not large, but growing quickly, with nearly 300 members. It is very friendly and an extremely supportive club to those who need information about, or require parts, for their Triumph cars, and / or to those who wish to delve into history, and to reminisce a little.
We disseminate information about our activities through the medium of 6 two monthly magazines per year, and through our club website.
An annual rally with award presentations, a regalia and library shop, a dinner and usually a driving rally, takes place in June / July.
Regional Representatives, in the UK and in other countries of the world organise various more local meets, often based within the aegis of another club or activity. Links occur with other classic car organisations e.g. the VSCC, and many of the more modern Triumph car clubs.
Activities, histories, technical detail, car finds and cars re-united with previous owners, are often recorded and pictures with information sent to relevant motoring press.
Support can be given to identify barn-find Triumph vehicles and/or parts, and help can be given to confirm original registrations to the relevant authorities.
A major programme is underway to retrieve records of all Triumphs ever built and/or registered, as most records were lost in the blitz on Coventry during the war. To this end, anyone with Triumph reminiscences or records or photographs is encouraged to contact us. Our able and enthusiastic archivist and librarian, has also published to date 3 hard backed books with pictures, stories and technical details regarding many past and currently active pre-1940 Triumphs. Other books have been setting out the history of these wonderful cars. Our librarian can help with the details.
We hope, if you are currently the proud owner of a pre-1940 Triumph, that you are enjoying using it. If it is under restoration, we hope it is nearly ready for the road. If a pile of parts, let us encourage you to get motivated to enjoy the car. If you are considering buying an historic car, let us encourage you to join us, and buy yourself a Triumph!
