1959 Triumph TR3 For Sale by Auction

For sale by auction on Saturday 13th July 2019 with Historics auctions. Registration 205 XVD Chassis Number TS 9002 Odometer reading 17259 Estimate £19000-£24000 The Triumph TR3 was built between 1955 and 1962 and was usually supplied as an open two-seater; an occasional rear seat and bolt-on steel hardtop were available as extras. It was powered by a 1991cc engine which initially produced 95bhp increasing to 100bhp at 5000rpm. The four speed manual transmission could be supplemented by an overdrive unit on the top three ratios electrically operated and controlled by a switch on the dash. In 1956, the front brakes changed from drum to disc becoming the first British series production car to be so fitted. Because of these disc brakes, the TR3 and subsequent TR3 A's became known for their superior braking ability, making it an autocross favourite. In 1957, the TR3 was replaced by an updated version, the TR3A. The updates included new wide front grille, exterior door handles, lockable boot handle and a full tool kit as standard, although the TR3 A's still retained the 1991cc engine. Thought to have originally hailed from Ireland, this TR3 is owned by a knowledgeable classic car enthusiast and as such presents in very good order. It appears that during a restoration the owners at the time had a later TR3 A, and more aesthetically pleasing, bonnet fitted. Finished in red with black trim, this Triumph has a lovely engine which starts immediately when requested and runs very smoothly. 205 XVD is fitted with an overdrive unit on the gearbox, allowing the engine to operate at a lower RPM and we are advised by the vendor the car drives well with no known faults. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a history folder, this Triumph TR3 is an attractive proposition for anyone with a penchant for classic British sports cars.
