Description

1960 Triumph TR3A 2. 2 Roadster Manual. Finished in Primrose Yellow with Dark Green Hide interior. 4-speed overdrive gearbox. The recipient of a complete bare-metal restoration at a cost of more than £70, 000 and built to fast road specification.

Originally registered on the 24th of August 1960 to its first owner in Coventry and supplied with its original historic plate.

Presenting in impeccable condition throughout with a superb list of upgraded equipment and performance parts and comes complete with a photographic album record and History File documenting the complete works.

Supplied with a full matching Tonneau cover and removable weather protection, stowable spare wheel and tools.

A great sales success on both sides of the Atlantic, the TR3 provided a rather more visceral alternative to its MG and Jaguar competition. In 1957 the TR3 was updated with various changes including a full width radiator grille, and this facelifted model was commonly referred to as the Triumph ‘TR3A’.

TR3s were campaigned in the RAC, Monte Carlo, Circuit of Ireland, Alpine, Liege-Rome-Liege, International Tulip, Scheveningen-Luxembourg, Tour de France, Douze Heures de Huy, Lyon-Charbonnieres, Acropolis, Chimay National, and Corsica rallies, among others, achieving numerous outright, team, and class victories including six “Coupes des Alpes” awards.

This “fast road use” TR3A is all set to be enjoyed and ready for any UK or European adventures or events you may wish to take on. Maintained regularly by JD Classics since 2006, this TR3A represents the very best in quality.
