The first in a long and successful line, the Triumph TR2 offers the classic British sports-car experience.

Forever synonymous with the TR range of sports cars, the Triumph marque was in a state of flux when the first of that famous line was introduced in 1953. From that point, it has never looked back and yet had it not been for the TR series – and most notably, the TR2 that started it all off – Triumph as a marque could well have died out long before it did. The success of these sporting roadsters also saw the marque become the dominant partner of the Standard-Triumph concern.

The TR2 proved itself until in the summer of 1953, when a modified car was taken to Belgium for a high speed run on the Jabbeke motorway. With Ken Richardson at the wheel, a speed of almost 125mph was achieved, a remarkable effort. Other valuable racing laurels followed, including Le Mans, the Mille Miglia and an outright win on the 1954 RAC Rally.

ABOUT THIS CAR

 We purchased this car about a year ago.
 The previous owner owned it for circa 25 years. We understand that this war was imported from Australia and first registered in NZ in 1993.
 In the last few months, we stripped most of the car down, repaired where necessary and repainted it, professionally, and is now looking a million dollars.
 Comes with brand new tyres and chrome wire wheels.
 Very healthy motor – runs and drives well.
 Nice clean interior.
 Good, clean soft top.
 Beautiful engine note
 Stunning condition throughout

This is a fun car, that no doubt would give its new owner lots of joy. A good wee investment too – way better than money in the bank.

TRANSPORT / SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.

Will be sold WOF’d and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
