The Triumph TR3 is a sports car produced between 1955 and 1962 by Standard Triumph in England. The face lifted variant, and the variant we have here is popularly but unofficially known as the TR3A. She entered production in 1957 and the final version, unofficially the TR3B, was produced in 1962.Although the TR3A was usually supplied as an open two-seater, an occasional rear seat and bolt-on steel hard top were available as extras.
The car was powered by a 1991 cc straight-4 ohv engine, coupled to a four speed manual gearbox which could be supplemented by an overdrive unit on the top three ratios.
Under most conditions the car was very responsive and forgiving, and is a true roadster, designed for sunny weather but with removable rain protection.
First registered in this country in June 2000 as a Californian import, this car was then restored and converted to right hand drive. It received a ‘full nut and bolt restoration’ including the chassis being powder coated. There is also a letter from the Motor Industry Heritage Trust confirming the year of manufacture as 1958, and this is sold with the car. Included is a large file of bills relating to this cars restoration. It is sold with a V5c.
