TRIUMPH TR2/3/3A (1953-1962) CAR HISTORY

Car review on TRIUMPH TR2/3/3A

To challenge MG in the all-important post-war North American export market, Standard/Triu mph boss Sir John Black knew he needed a more credible sports car than the quaint, under-powered 2000 Roadster. With his bid to take over Morgan rejected, he initiated a prototype of an affordable Triu mph sports car.


A Standard Vanguard 2-litre engine was installed in a shortened Standard 8 chassis and clothed by a two-seater roadster body. Called the TS20, it was revealed to muted applause at the 1952 London Motor Show. The runtish looks were not liked, but Black gave the concept of a cheap and cheerful sports car the go-ahead.


The TR2 revealed a year later overcame the TRI's problems: it featured a simple ladder-type chassis and a longer body with a much bigger boot. A 90 bhp 1991cc version of the Vanguard engine with twin carbs was mated to a four-speed gearbox, while suspension was coil spring and wishbone at the front and a live rear axle on semi-elliptic springs.


It could reach 60 mph (96 kph) in under 12 seconds, return fuel consumption of 25mpg in daily use, yet still do 100 mph (160 kph) - or 108 (173) with optional overdrive. This simple, enjoyable small sports car was lapped up by American buyers and the TR2 quickly became the company's top dollar earner.


The TR2 sired the similar 1955 TR3. It had a bit more power and a new front grille, and a factory hard top was offered as part of an optional GT package. In 1956, it became the first mass-produced car with front disc brakes. Triple overdrive and a token rear seat became available at the same time. The 1957 TR3a was the last of the cutaway-door Tars with a full-width grille, door handles and a 2138cc engine. The TR3b was a version with full synchromesh gearbox of the later TR4, produced for the American market only.
Although the TR4 that came next had smoother Italian styling, mechanically it followed the same rugged principles. Indeed, the basic TR chassis survived, albeit with independent suspension, until the TR6 came to an end in 1976.
