1960 Triumph TR3 Roadster For Sale

The Triumph TR series started out with several ill-conceived prototypes using various Standard-Triumph components. It wasn't until 1953 that the first Triumph TR2 appeared. Engineered by Ken Richardson, it incorporated the Standard Vanguard 2-liter engine in an envelope body and quickly proved its engine's power, the suspension's performance and the wind-cheating attributes of the body with a 125mph record run on the Jabbeke motorway in Belgium where only a few years before Jaguar had cemented the XK 120's stature by exceeding 120mph. Triumph did nearly 125mph with 1,991cc where Jaguar had needed 3,441cc. The TR2 was succeeded by the TR3 in 1955 and a year later became the first production car to offer standard front wheel disc brakes. The TR3A was introduced in 1957 with a wide grille, external door handles and locking trunk and represents to many collectors the culmination of one of the most successful -- in both driving and commercial terms -- of Fifties British sports cars. Triumph supported a works rally team during this period, contesting all the important UK and Continental international rallies like Monte Carlo. The cars were driven by real talents such as Bernard Consten and achieved multiple successes. Extensively equipped and prepared, the rally TR3As represent the high point of Triumph competition history. This 1960 Triumph TR3A is a wonderful automobile, meticulously restored and enthusiastically equipped in the style of the works rally team. The restoration itself is first rate and comprehensive but it is the equipment that sets this car apart from the vast majority of Triumph TR3As: Halda Speedpilot rally computer, two dash-mounted stopwatches (a Heuer and a Leonidas), flexible stalk mounted map light, Lucas driving lights, a rear Lucas high intensity reversing lamp. hardtop, top bows, side curtains, radial blackwall tires, full tool roll, engine crank, jack, silver painted wire wheels, wheel nut hammer, owner's manual and a top boot. Its most prominent feature, a hallmark of the Triumph works rally cars, is the Lucas spotlight mounted in the hardtop through a flexible boot that the navigator can direct with a handle inside the car. Everything is done right and to the highest standards, and the car is clean, orderly and ready for a fast summer vintage rallying season. $49,500.00
