A sales success, especially in the important American market – and the winner of many prestigious car races of its era: the Triumph TR2 helped to establish the reputation of the Standard Motor Company of Coventry, England, as maker of sportive open two seaters. With its four-cylinder engine producing 67 kW (91 hp) of power from 1,991 cc of capacity, this roadster was extraordinarily powerful and fast for that time. 8,636 copies were built between 1953 and 1955. In 1955, the next generation, named TR3, was ready. It featured disk brakes and larger carburettors, tried and tested on the race track. A 1957 facelift brought a wider radiator grille, a boot lock and exterior door handles. These vehicles are nowadays referred to as “TR3A”, although this designation was never officially used. Similarly, the last variant of the TR3, available in 1962 only, while the succeeding TR4 was already being sold, is today referred to as “TR3B”. In that last model year, a larger, 2,138 cc engine was being offered. Across all variants, approximately 74,800 TR3s were built, making it one of the most successful Triumph models.
TR2 and early (up to 1957) TR3 models are suitable for the Mille Miglia.
