Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer what must be one of the finest examples of a Triumph TR3A Roadster. With a superb specification, and outstanding presentation, this really is a wonderful TR3A. A bare metal complete restoration was commissioned by a leading European car collector at a cost of more than £70,000, so this Triumph has wanted for nothing.
Highlights of its options include:-
Alloy outer panels, Leather bucket seats, Polished wood rim steering wheel, Upgraded disc brakes front and rear, Fully adjustable suspension, Rose-jointed anti-roll bars, Rally specification engine with a fully lightened and balanced, nitrided crankshaft, Custom steel connecting rods, Lightweight pistons, Big valve gas-flowed cylinder head, Close-ratio gearbox with overdrive on 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears, Chromed-wire wheels, Stainless steel hidden fitting and pedal box, Engine-turned steel dashboard, Battery trickle charger installation. Maintained regularly by JD Classics since 2006, this TR3A represents the very best in quality.
A great sales success on both sides of the Atlantic, the TR3 provided a rather more visceral alternative to its MG and Jaguar competition. In 1957 the TR3 was updated with various changes including a full width radiator grille, and this facelifted model was commonly referred to as the Triumph ‘TR3A’.
TR3s were campaigned in the RAC, Monte Carlo, Circuit of Ireland, Alpine, Liege-Rome-Liege, International Tulip, Scheveningen-Luxembourg, Tour de France, Douze Heures de Huy, Lyon-Charbonnieres, Acropolis, Chimay National, and Corsica rallies, among others, achieving numerous outright, team, and class victories including six "Coupes des Alpes" awards. The TR3 is a true roadster, designed for sunny weather but with removable rain protection.
Originally registered on the 24th August 1960, near Coventry, this UK-supplied RHD example has been not only been restored to as-new condition, but its specification surpasses the original. Ideal for ‘fast road use’, this TR3A is all ready to be enjoyed. The car is complete with its original historic cherished number plate.
