Built to the same dimensions as the 13/35, but with a larger capacity engine, the Fifteen was the last of larger conventional cars built by Triumph, before they concentrated on small and then sportier cars. We have recorded 11 and two survive with their original style bodywork. 5 body styles were available.

The first owner, a Dr Watson of Cambridge ran the car from 1928 until 1934, when it was laid up. The present owner bought itafter Dr Watson’s death in August 1959, with 4,500 miles on the speedometer. It has since covered about 30,000 miles & the interior is entirely original. This was the first British car to be fitted with four wheel hydraulic brakes (Lockheed Wagner) imported with the axles from the USA. This model was the first Triumph marque to be exported seriously, mainly to Australia & New Zealand. Owner: Mike Cooke
