Mk2 Sedan - PI

Written by Adrian Diehm

The up-market variant of the Triumph 2000 series made its debut in 1970. Features that separated it from the Mk2 2000, included black-bezelled instuments which included a tacho, 3-spoke steering wheel, heavily sculpured rear seat made for 2 persons, black vinyl trim on the C pillars and boot panel between the lights, black grille.

The entire mechanicals were carried over from the Mk1 PI, with negligible changes.
