This late Triumph TR3A was despatched on the 27th July 1961 and registered in 1962. The car was sold new by Standard Triumph Motor Company Inc, Boston, USA and from the vehicle Heritage Certificate the car was shipped from Southampton to USA aboard the vessel 'American Guide'. The TR3A was ordered new with heater, whitewall tyres and tonneau cover.

Our TR has spent most of its life in the US, and it wasn't until the summer of 2014 the car made its way back to the UK. The car arrived in the UK in excellent mechanical order, in well-presented condition. The vehicle was soon sold to an Italian Doctor, a collector based in the North of Italy. Since then the car has been further improved with paintwork, ensuring it has a stunning, gleaming finish and some chrome work. Since coming back from Italy, in 2017 the TR has had £9000 spent on a full right hand drive conversion to include new steering column, steering rack and outer and inner steering shafts. Further recent work includes re-trimming the seats, dashboard and original steering wheel and new over-riders. Mechanical work includes new front brake calipers and brake pads, rear brakes shoes and wheel cylinders, rebuilding carburettors, new thermostat and electric fan, new control box, wiper arms, clutch pipe and new accelerator pedal.

On the road the car performs superbly and handles superbly. The engine sounds terrific, holds excellent oil pressure and feels very responsive. Gear changes are slick, the syncro's are excellent and the car is great fun to drive. The TR3A presents very well with an excellent hood, sidescreens, Minilight style wheels, lovely paintwork, body panels are exceptionally straight, the underbody superb and the interior looks excellent with its freshly trimmed upholstery.
