1959 Triumph

TR3A



What We Like

Between 1957-1962, the Triumph TR3A provided updates to the popular TR3 platform while still preserving its classic British sports car character. This TR3A reportedly received a comprehensive refresh between 2020-2022 including documented engine/transmission rebuilds and redone cosmetics, and remains finished in its original colors of Sebring White over Red, as confirmed by an included BMIHT certificate. Renowned British car specialist Jack Merryman of Merryman Modifications completed the mechanical rebuilds, with accompanying receipts included in the sale. If you're looking for an iconic British roadster from a golden era of open-air motoring, this charming TR3A is worth a look!
