Swallow Doretti 1955

Great Britain

Doretti Sports



Attractive aluminium-and-steel-bodied two-seater built by the Swallow Coachbuilding Co. (1935) Ltd, of Walsall, Staffs and featuring the well-proved 2-litre Triumph TR2 engine mounted in a rigid chassis frame. Regrettably the model was in production for little more than one year-announced in March 1954-with initial orders being confined to the American market. Wheelbase was 7 ft 7 in, overall length 13 ft, width 5 ft 1 in.
