1959 TRIUMPH TR3S EVOCATION For Sale

Built by Protek Engineering Oxon , here we have an accurate reconstruction of ‘XHP 939’ – the 1959 experimental Works Le Mans entrant. Fitted with a race tuned TR3 engine breathing through twin choke DU6 SU carburettors The car has competed successfully at Le Mans Classis, Silverstone Classic, HSCC Gold Cup etc. This car has recently competed in the 2019 Goodwood members meeting where it competed in the Tony Gaze Trophy where it finished an incredible 6th overall!!! The custodian of this vehicle, having seen Glen’s superb TR3S tribute car, commissioned his company, Protek Engineering to create another TR3S tribute car. Having obtained the original Works blueprints for the TR3S project and some ex-Works competition spares, not to mention the registration number and chassis plate of one of the factory Le Mans racers (registration number ‘XHP 939’), he was determined that his car be as authentic as possible. The donor chassis thus had its side rails not just lengthened (by 5? 7/8?) but also deepened (by 3/4?). Further rigidity comes from the installation of a roll cage front and rear with associated bracing struts. The TR3S’s elongated fibreglass bodywork was painstakingly recreated even down to the ducts ahead of the rear wings, reshaped spare wheel ‘letter box’ and racing windscreen. In the absence of a Sabrina engine, the car has been fitted with a blueprinted TR four-cylinder engine fed by the very rare twin-choke DU6 SU carburettors that develops circa 170bhp. Help in getting the detailing right was provided by Claude Dubois who was one of the Works drivers at the 1959 Le Mans 24-hours. Since its completion, the reincarnated ‘XHP 939’ has competed successfully at Le Mans Legends, the HSCC Gold Cup, the Le Mans Classic and the Silverstone Classic. It should also be eligible for the Goodwood Fordwater Trophy and Spa Classic. In addition it holds the distinction of being the fastest-timed TR ever to race at the Le Mans Classic and in doing so it beat some much more expensive and exotic machinery (the Triumph came from the very back of the grid to finish in 19th place and was clocked at an impressive 137mph). With some top-level historic racing cars changing hands for millions of pounds, this TR3S Tribute represents excellent value for money and provides a unique entry into the world of historic motorsport. The Triumph’s impressive specification includes: 4-cylinder engine with worked cylinder head, steel crankshaft, forged pistons, competition con-rods and flywheel. Heavy-duty Stag type 4 speed gear box with overdrive on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears. Limited slip differential. Oil cooler and catch tank. Alloy radiator and header tank. Twin circuit disc brakes all round with adjustable bias control. Foam filled alloy fuel tank. Fully plumbed-in fire extinguisher system with internal and external ‘kill’ switches for both fire and electrics. New 5-point race harness. 15-inch 72-spoke wire wheels shod with Dunlop L section 5.50 tyres. Front and rear suspension completely refurbished with new bearings in July 2017 for the Silverstone Classic. £105995.00 - VIEWINGS STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY -
