It was then restyled in 1969, with the new 2000/2500 Mk2 'Innsbruck' featuring a Stag-like front end for a more modern look, while the upgraded interior included a wood-veneer dashboard and door cappings.

These weren’t the most spacious family estates, but with six-cylinder power and typical Triumph quality they were among the most tempting. The last cars were made in 1977, and these days any well-preserved 2000/2500 estate makes a great classic choice.

I had one of these; it was an ex French private ambulance with high roof. I converted the rear into a mini camping-car and used it to escort abnormal loads, mainly in France. It was a wonderful vehicle, very reliable & well-known in the business, including lots of French police (for the right reasons!).
On the odd occasion it needed unexpected work, French Citroën dealers could not have been more helpful & prices were very reasonable. I was sorry when it died: nineteen years old!

How on earth can you leave the Ford Cortina estate off this list? They were the most popular estate car EVER in the UK!
