1954 Swallow Doretti Roadster
The Swallow Doretti was a rebodied Triumph TR2 produced by the Swallow Coachbuilding Company at the Walsall Airport.
Working from their extensive side-car experience, Swallow fitted their aluminum body with a high level of fit and finish.
Swallow manufactured their own tubular-steel chassis that accepted the TR2 running gear. Compared to the TR2, the Swallow Doretti had a longer wheelbase and the engine sat further back in the chassis.
