The engine bay is Concours-standard -Lightened and balanced, Nitrided crank, steel rods, special pistons, and a big-valve gas-flowed head -Only 2,400 miles since the restoration. Maintained by JD Classics. On the button and simply irresistible Long famed for their rugged reliability and idiosyncratic good looks, the 'sidescreen' 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. Great fun to drive, its tough boxed 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 some 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. Offered here is a beautiful TR3A from a private collection that has been restored to an exceptional level with sensible upgrades to enhance the driving experience of this classic late-fifties roadster. The Triumph was acquired by JDClassics in 2006 and offered to Kurt Englehorn who bought it and continued to have it maintained by the JD workshop. The history file contains communications at the selling point and some substantial invoices detailing maintenance and attention keeping the car absolutely 'on the button'. The restoration has been performed to a very high standard including specially made alloy panels which, in addition to offering greater panel accuracy and exacting shut lines, results in a lighter bodyshell. The engine has been built to a rally specification which included a lightened and balanced, Nitrided crankshaft, steel connecting rods, special pistons, and a gas-flowed head with bigger valves. The gearbox has close ratios and is fitted with overdrive. It seems this pretty roadster left the factory finished in Red but is now finished in a delightful shade of Lemon Yellow complemented by a superb interior in Bottle Green with very smart TR-bespoke bucket seats and a matching soft-top. The colour may have changed but pleasingly it retains its Coventry registration commensurate to its Canley factory heritage. Although not requiring an MOT the Certificate is still valid until June 2019 and the car has covered approximately 2,400 miles since its expensive restoration. The weather equipment consists of the hood and tonneau but no side screens and there is a spare key. Arrow-straight directional stability is not a term normally applied to fifties sports cars but we understand that the engineering integrity that is evident in this car's fastidious restoration has resulted in a modern feel and a much more satisfying driving experience. This lovely TR is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner and it's 'picture-perfect 'looks will certainly impress at events, however, it's probably the pleasure of conducting this little Summer-yellow roadster down a country lane on a warm afternoon that will endear the most.
