The Triumph TR3 of 1955 was a direct evolution of the TR2. With it came minor styling revisions, a slight hike in power and the options of an occasional rear seat and a bolt-on steel hard top. The final iteration of the TR3, the TR3A, appeared in 1957. It was instantly recognisable by its wider front grille, exterior door handles and lockable boot latch. Production lasted until 1962, by which time 58,236 are said to have been built. Contemporary road tests achieved 0-60mph acceleration times of some 11.5 seconds and a mean top speed of a whisker under 110mph.
Extensively restored and uprated by the vendor for competition usage during the mid/late 1980s, ‘65 EPK’ was treated to a new chassis in 1999. The Triumph’s impressive specification includes: a larger core radiator, Rover 2000 brake servo, Charlene brake limiter, aeroquip brake lines, Watts linkage, coil-over fully adjustable rear shock absorbers and adjustable front suspension. Fitted with a close ratio 4-speed gearbox with overdrive on all gears and a lightweight fibreglass bonnet, front panel and wings, the TR3A also boasts wet weather equipment. A desirable, ‘home market’ car, it is described by the vendor as being in ‘good’ (interior trim, bodywork and paintwork) or ‘very good’ (engine, gearbox, electrical equipment) condition.
