TRIUMPH TR2 ROADSTER LONGDOOR DEL 1954 overdrive For Sale

We offer for sale a real historical gem in the version produced only in a thousand pieces. Completely restored, still with engine running in, kept as a perfect amateur, perfect body and mechanics with overdrive .. The TR2 (abbreviation of Triumph Roadster 2) was a passenger car produced by the Triumph from 1953 to 1955 in 8,636 units. The TR2 was designed to compete with the MG sports cars in North America and to replace the slightly powerful Triumph Roadster, which had become obsolete. For these reasons John Black, president of the Standard Motor Company, ie the owner of the Triumph group, decided to start the design of a new model. A prototype was then set up which was given the name of 20TS. This model had installed the short version of the Standard Eight chassis and was equipped with the 2 L displacement engine already mounted on the Standard Vanguard. This prototype was presented at the 1952 London Motor Show. Black asked Ken Richardson to test the prototype.

Subsequently after the first 1000 units produced the so-called small mouth model was introduced, short door, ie always with the same small recessed mask, but with the shorter doors. Belonging to the category of sports cars, the TR2 had installed an in-line four-cylinder engine of 1,991 cm³ of displacement and 90 hp of power. This engine was the updated and upgraded version of the analogue engine mounted on the Standard Vanguard [1] [3]. Power was supplied by two SU carburetors. The frame was separate. The independent front suspensions with coil springs, while the rear ones were spring and rigid axle. The wheels were available both with spokes and with full rims. The standard gearbox offered was four-speed manual; the overdrive on the highest gear was instead offered among the options [4]. The brakes were Lockheed with a drum on the four wheels.
