The Triumph TR3 story

The Triumph TR3 is a British sports car produced by the Standard-Triumph Motor Company in Coventry, England, between 1955 and 1962. The TR3, the successor of the TR2, is a traditional roadster with more engine power and better brakes than its predecessor. The ‘Side Screen TR’, so called because of the use of removable Plexiglas side windows, was a sales and racing success. In 1956 the drum brakes in the front were replaced by disc brakes – a first for a British production car. The Triumph was used in races, hill climbs and rallies across Europe and North America and claimed several individual, team and class victories. In 1957 the TR3A an upgraded version of the TR3 was released.

This Triumph TR3A

As mentioned above the TR3A features numerous factory-installed upgrades as for example the disc brakes in the front. Brooks Classics acquired this Triumph directly from its former German owner who had bought the car as a restoration project in 1994. As a qualified coachbuilder he very professionally restored the TR3A to top condition. The chassis was stripped down to bare metal and fully flame galvanized, then the sheet metal parts were reassembled; there is not the slightest trace of corrosion. The interior and the engine compartment have been finished with love and craftsmanship, proof of which can be seen in even the smallest details. The beautiful leather upholstery shines – not only because of the colour but also due to the high-quality finishing. The TR3A, more than anything, is a driver’s car and therefore a lot of attention has been paid to power train and the steering. The original steering gear has been replaced by rack-and-pinion steering which provides a more direct steering feel. Since the car has been driven in Germany, all technical refinements have of course been included in the vehicle papers by the TÜV (technical inspection association in Germany – translator’s note) and are therefore safe. The engine power has been increased by using a stainless-steel exhaust manifold with less resistance. All these things make this a very fine roadster; compact, good steering characteristics, powerful brakes and plenty of power from the two-litre engine. Things like a hood cover and a tonneau cover made from top-quality Mohair, door inserts and a soft top complete the picture. There are dozens more details, too many to list here, so come along and see for yourself.
