White over Red
The Triumph TR3 is a sports car produced between 1955 and 1962 by Standard-Triumph in England. The facelifted variant, popularly but unofficially known as the TR3A, entered production in 1957 and the final version, unofficially the TR3B, was produced in 1962.
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”. However the cars were not badged as such and the “TR3A” name was not used officially, as is evident from contemporary sales brochures. The “TR3A” was built between 1957 and 1962.
This 1958 Triumph TR3A is in very good condition and has been very well maintained. The 1991cc engine runs very well and transfers all of its power through a 4-speed overdrive manual transmission. The paint is in exceptional condition for a vehicle of this age and the red interior with bucket seats is in equally impressive condition. The chrome wire wheels are wrapped in a 165-80-15 tires and look basically brand new. This TR3A includes a soft top, side curtains and tonneau cover. This is a very comfortable and fun car to drive. This 1958 Triumph TR3A is perfect for a weekend cruise or will make a great conversation peace at any car show.
The Triumph TR3 was the first production car to include standard disc brakes, which were continued on the “TR3A” facelift. The car was known for its superior braking ability, making it an autocross favorite.
The “TR3A” was a minor update from the TR3. The updates included the new wide front grill, exterior door handles, lockable boot handle and came with a full tool kit as standard (this was an option on the TR3). The total production run of the “TR3A” was 58,236. This makes it the third best-selling TR after the TR6 and TR7. The TR3A was so successful that the original panel molds eventually wore out and had to be replaced. In 1959 a slightly modified version came out that had raised stampings under the bonnet and boot hinges and under the door handles, as well as a redesigned rear floor section. In addition, the windscreen was attached with bolts rather than the Dzus connectors used on the early “A” models. It is estimated that only 9,500 of the original 58,000 built survive in the world today.
