Triumph TR3a 1960 Manual with Overdrive.


The Triumph TR3a was produced from 1957 until 1962. It’s a typically British 2 seater sports car from the late 1950s and early 60’s They were great fun to drive, and  being fitted with a 95BHP engine, motored along very well in the day.


The car we offer for sale here was first registered in 1960. Finished in British Racing Green with a Grey leather interior. The car is in beautiful condition, and does drive particularly well. But then it wold, because this is no standard TR3a. The history file with the car dates back to 1991 when a full rebuild by one of the top vehicle restorers of the time, with bills at the time for a full body and engine rebuild costing around £11000 which was a huge sum of money back then.


But the history of the car doesn’t stop then. There has been a constant history of maintenance and improvement done to the car, work done included:

Engine 1991cc.

Fast Road Cam

Roller Rocker Gear

Oil Cooler

Alloy Large Capacity Sump

Alloy Radiator

Kenlow Fan

Slotted Front Discs

Alloy Rear Brake Drums

Rack & Pinion Steering

Revington TR Wiring Loom

Uprated Overdrive Unit

Uprated Front & Rear Springs

Spax Adjustable Front Shock Absorbers

Front Anti Roll Bar

Aeroquip Brake Hoses

High Torque Starter Motor

Stainless Steel Sports Exhaust

To say a car has been maintained regardless of cost would epitomise this car. The bills invoice and receipts in the file total around £40000. So its been cared for like a Cherished Treasure, but she’s also been used.


Events such as the Three Castles, Prix des Alpes to name but two have seen this fabulous TR take part, and the car achieved success on more than one occasion.

If you fancy trying your hand at Classic Rallying then this car would be absolutely ideal coming already fitted with Twin Fuel system, Twin electrics, the Terratrip and, well just so much more.


At £29995 this car could be considered something of a bargain when you consider how much it would cost to buy a TR3a, and then bring it up not only to this level of Spec, but also the absolutely outstanding condition this car is in today.
