  • Chassis number: TS54570
Although it was never officially badged as the TR3A by Triumph, such were the significant upgrades to the TR3 model made in 1957 that enthusiasts have unofficially designated these 1957‑62 cars as such to differentiate them from their predecessors. The updates included a new wide front grille, exterior door handles, lockable boot handle and, for those inconvenient moments of obstinance, a full tool kit as standard. The total production run of the TR3A was 58,236, making it the third best‑selling TR after the TR6 and TR7.

This Royal Blue example, fitted with overdrive, is a well‑known car within the TR Register and was used until recently to make regular trips to Europe with Brooklands aero screens, tonneau cover and a flying jacket, according to the vendor. Around three years ago it was sympathetically improved with new carpets, seats and refreshed paintwork. A single pipe sports exhaust and chrome wire wheels were also added.
