For Sale: 1960 Triumph TR3A in St. Louis, Missouri


Vehicle Description

Signal Red on Black! Recently restored with upgraded 2138cc motor and 4-speed synchromesh manual transmission from an early�TR4!! Hardtop and side curtains! When the Triumph TR3 debuted in 1955, Triumph intended not only to update the previous TR2 but also bring the driving experience and styling into the second half of the 1950s! The car debuted with the TR2's 1991 Inline 4 cylinder motor that made 95 horsepower, plenty for a car that weighed just over 2,000 pounds. In 1957, the "TR3A" was launched, further improving the car and incorporating wider front grille and front disc brakes, the first production car to feature them as standard equipment! TR3A production was around 58,000, of which less than 10,000 are documented to survive today! We are very excited to offer this 1960 Triumph TR3A! It is finished in a fresh coat of Signal Red over black vinyl upholstery with white piping on the seats. The car is powered by a later 2138cc Inline 4 from a TR4 offering 105 factory rated horsepower, a healthy upgrade from the original 1,991cc I4. Transferring the power is a 4-speed manual transmission! The car is further fitted with several nice touches including a matching hardtop with British Union Jack decal, side curtains, wind wings, bumper guards and chrome rock shield mounted on the lower rear fenders. The car comes equipped with painted wire wheels with Vredestein Sprint Classic 65 HR 15 tires. This TR3 was completely gone through by its previous Indiana owner. The paint and chrome were completed as well as all vinyl or plastic pieces in the cabin. The car runs and drives exceptionally well thanks to a recently rebuilt motor and transmission. The car shifts through all gears without grinding and the shifter feels crisp. The car makes for a very drivable and presentable example of one of Britain's most popular roadsters and should make the next owner extraordinarily proud both at local shows and on short road trips! We would welcome any additional questions on this TR3A; please don't hesitate to call! Thanks for looking!
