About this Triumph TR3

In 1957 the Triumph TR3 was updated with the 'face-lifted' model which is commonly referred to as the Triumph TR3A but not badged as such.
It was a minor update from the TR3 with a new wider front grill, exterior door handles and a lockable boot handle.

Total production of the TR3A between 1957 and 1962 was 58,236 making it the third best-selling TR after the TR6 and TR7 and it is estimated that only 9,500 of the original 58,000 built survive today.
The TR3 was also the first production car to include front disc brakes as standard and was known for its superior braking ability, making it a real Rally Car favourite.

According to the Standard Motor Company Limited's Register, this beautiful Triumph TR3A - Chassis No: TS 22210L was built in Coventry on Tuesday 24th September 1957 between 7.30am and 2.00pm and was a LHD car which was despatched to a Triumph dealer in the USA. Unfortunately, as is not uncommon with USA cars, nothing is really known of its life in America until it was imported back from the USA in 1991.

It was then sold by well known TR specialist Ken Mumford to the current owner Mr John Murphy who owns a Jaguar Parts business in Coventry in November 1991. Mr Murphy commenced a full nut and bolt 'Body-Off' chassis rebuild and conversion to RHD over the following 5 years and upon completion it was MOT'd on March 9th 1996 with 5 miles indicated on the speedometer and registered in the UK on 28th June 1996 with the period number plate PSY 117.

Finished in Pearl White with original specification Red leather Seats, Red Deluxe Wool carpet, Red Everflex hood and side-screens and Dunlop Chrome Wire Wheels,
The 2138cc Engine was completely rebuilt with new pistons, liners, camshaft, oil pump, crankshaft regrind and new bearings, rebuilt 4 speed TR4 Gearbox and Overdrive, TR4 steering rack, new TR6 front suspension and Disc Brakes, replacement of all old chrome-work and hinges, works Rally wooden Steering Wheel and Lucas Rally 4 Headlights + Spotlights.

The car was in storage from 2003 until earlier this year and the mileage covered since the rebuild is only 1,302 Miles!

We have just prepared the car for sale and save the odd mark here and there, it is still in fantastic condition throughout and really does drive superbly and it really should be seen and driven to be fully appreciated.

Upon sale the car will be given a pre-sales service and a new MOT (although now exempt) and it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty.
