The Triumph TR3a was produced from 1957 until 1962. It’s a typically British 2 seater sports car from the late 1950s and early 60’s They were great fun to drive, and being fitted with a 95BHP engine, motored along very well in the day. The car we offer for sale here was first registered in 1960. Finished in British Racing Green with a Grey leather interior. The car is in beautiful condition, and does drive particularly well. But then it wold, because this is no standard TR3a. The history file with the car dates back to 1991 when a full rebuild by one of the top vehicle restorers of the time, with bills at the time for a full body and engine rebuild costing around £11000 which was a huge sum of money back then. But the history of the car doesn’t stop then. There has been a constant history of maintenance and improvement done to the car, work done included: Engine 1991cc.

Events such as the Three Castles, Prix des Alpes to name but two have seen this fabulous TR take part, and the car achieved success on more than one occasion.
