previously owned by a tr register member who maintained it to very high standard
looked after for many years by bridge classic cars in suffolk good history file
recent full service, fuel line replacement and some attention to the electrics
long famed for their rugged reliability and idiosyncratic good looks, the ‘side screen’ trs have attracted a fanatical following over the years. The final evolution of the triumph tr2/ tr3 sportscar line (save for the american market tr3b), the tr3a was introduced in september 1957. it was never officially badged as such and was, in fact, a minor revision of the tr3 with updates including a new wide grille, exterior door handles, lockable boot and a full tool kit.

great fun to drive, its tough box-section chassis featured independent coil and wishbone front suspension, a leaf-sprung ‘live’ rear axle and disc/ drum brakes. (the first british production car to have front disc brakes as standard). fitted with a 1991cc four-cylinder ohv unit developing around 104bhp and 117lbft of torque, it was reputedly capable of 110mph. A great sales success on both sides of the atlantic, the model provided a rather more visceral alternative to its mg and jaguar competition.

this is a fine example of the ever popular triumph tr3a finished in signal red with a classic black interior having been previously owned by a tr register member who maintained it to very high mechanical and cosmetic standard as the car was regularly used in tr register events.

the bodywork appears clear of corrosion with no visual signs of any defects and excellent shut lines and the paintwork retains a deep and even shine. The black leather interior is classic tr3 and in excellent condition with a little gentle patination in the places you might expect. The car sits on steel wheels and both its canvas soft-top and black removable hardtop are very presentable and in good working order.

included in the triumph’s extensive and well documented history are import papers dating back to 1967, when it returned to the uk from maryland, invoices for parts etc. Dating back over the last 25 years from leading suppliers such as moss europe, john skinner and tr gb, an extensive mot history, various manuals and the original instruction book (3rd edition).

most recently, in 2020, it had a full service, fuel line replacement and some attention to the electrics at the renowned bridge classic cars in suffolk who ensured, after numerous road tests, that uff 787 is a joy to drive. They have looked after the car for many years and describe it as “absolutely genuine and really lovely”.

the complete range of fifties and sixties trs continue to be undervalued for what they offer in terms of lively reliable performance, great availability of parts and the simple fact that they are good-looking, charismatic old british sports cars. This fine, cared for tr is ‘on her toes’ both mechanically and bodily and seems incredibly appealing at this guide.
