1959 Triumph

TR3A Roadster

Triumph Racing Green with Tan leather interior, Tan carpeting and Tan convertible top, Fully restored, 4-speed and chrome wire wheels.

In 1957, Triumph introduced the TR3A line. The new TR3A was seen as an improved version of its predecessor, the TR3, in both design and engineering. The sporty new "3A" had formidable speed potential, topping out at over 105 mph. It featured a considerably larger grille complete with its own badging. The wider eggcrate style of the new grille earned it the nickname of "widemouth" from Triumph enthusiasts. The TR3A came equipped with a multitude of options, including wire or steel wheels and a selection of exterior colors to choose from, as well as recessed headlights and a locking trunk lid.

Triumph TRs became familiar in competitions from club to international level. At the Le Mans 24 Hour race in 1960, all three cars finished and in 1961 they placed ninth, eleventh and fifteenth to take the team award.

Restored between 1996 and 1998, it remains in superb, well serviced, collector owned condition. It has been used sparingly since restoration. Recently this TR3A has received new Spax shocks, Front and rear swaybars, New tires, Rebuilt overdrive unit, New Optima battery, New wiring harness and complete servicing to be ready for immediate use or show. Full documentation and receipts for the restoration are included, this TR3A must be considered one of the best available.
