The Triumph TR2 is a sports car which was produced by the Standard Motor Company in the United Kingdom between 1953 and 1955, during which time 8,636 cars were produced. The car used a twin SU carburetor version of the 121 cid (1991 cc) four-cylinder Standard Vanguard engine tuned to increase its output to 90 bhp (67 kW). The body was mounted on a substantial separate chassis with coil-sprung independent suspension at the front and a leaf spring live axle at the rear. Either wire or disc wheels could be supplied. The standard transmission was a four-speed manual unit but overdrive was available on top gear as an option. Lockheed drum brakes were fitted all round. As of Q1 2011 there were approximately 377 licensed and 52 SORN TR2's registered with the DVLA. The TR2 was designed to challenge MG in the sports car export market to North America.

Description The Triumph TR3 was built between 1955 and 1957 during which time only 1286 cars were produced for the home market. According to the TR Register, as of 2002, there remains only 893 registered TR3/3A’s on UK roads. The TR3-B is an unofficial name given nowadays to the final version of the TR3 which was produced in 1962. It was offered concurrent with the TR4 which started production in 1961 and was a special short-production run in response to dealer concerns that the buying public might not welcome the TR4. It had the body of the later TR3-A and two series were produced, one with a commission number preceeded by ‘TSF’ of which 530 were produced and one with commission numbers preceeded by the TCF of which 2,804 were produced. The TSF series were identical to the last run of TR3A’s and the TCF series had the 2.2 litre, TR4 engine. It also had different headlight rims, a wider grille and door handles. This stunning example has been totally restored in 2013 with such fundamental elements such as the body, frame, chassis interior and engine all recieving due attention. The frame and suspension particularly has been sand-blasted and painted. She sits on new chrome wire wheel
After spending most of its' life in California this rare model was repatriated in 1994. Since then it has undergone a most comprehensive and sympathetic 'no expense spared' full nut and bolt restoration (photographic evidence and Hertitage Certificate) also converting to RHD. Unfortunately due to the owners ill health this superb classic has never been registered or indeed on the road so has come to us to find a new owner who will appreciate and use her.;Finished in 'Signal Red' with luxurious black leather interior with red piping and chrome fitments.This is the TSF model of which only 530 were made so quite a rare example. Will be sold with a fresh MOT and registration plate.
