Car description

With its classic styling, bold colors, and unbeatable driving personality, this 1959 Triumph TR3 is an enthusiast's machine. This quality car has been giving all the right investments too, so all you have to do is drive out of our showroom and immediately enjoy the open road.The design of this is pure European style. The full-width grill is a clear indicator of the TR3A, and those headlights with pebble screens are beautifully crafted into the body. The long flowing fenders and low-cut doors carry a more dramatic line than even the XK120 roadster. It all ends in a rear design that has a hint of a tailfin to appeal to the all-important USA export market. It's amazing that this much style could be contained in such a compact body. In fact, the size and weight of the TR3 has made it a perpetual darling in road course racing, and features like the removable windscreen and genuine Minilite wheels only heighten that feeling. But the sunny yellow paint also gives this one a very cheery disposition. So we really know you just want to strap a picnic basket to the luggage rack and take this one on a long Sunday-funday trip.Because this is a vehicle that's meant to be open to the world, we love the way the black interior looks against the yellow paint. But more than just the right color, you can tell there has been a solid investment in making sure that the bucket seats, dash, door panels, carpeting, and everything else gives off the impression of quality from moment you sit down. This car is built for the pure driving experience. So you'll love gazing at the full Jaeger gauge package, grabbing the grippy leather-wrapped steering wheel, and the gearbox is just a fingertip away. Push the start knob and then let the wind whip through the interior while you help fill it with the wonderful soundtrack from the motor. For those times that you do get caught out in wet weather, this one comes with the full top and side curtains to get you home dry.One of the reasons why the TR3 is a sought-after roadster from the 50s is under the hood. The 2.0-liter motor was one of the larger displacements for the class outpacing other icons like the MGA. The engine bay looks well maintained, and those twin SU carbs are something we all look for at the car shows. The motor's nice condition means you know this is the one you want for an easy jaunt down the open road. The exhaust note is hypnotic as you discover the fun and control that the four-speed manual gearbox provides. But while these sprightly roadsters have built a reputation for providing one of the best driving experiences around, this one is enhanced even further by the surefootedness of front disc brakes and Vredestein Sprint tires that offer a classic look but modern grip.As you look over all the pictures, you'll spot the ultra clean undercarriage and all the details (right down to the spare tire well.) These really let you know all the right investments were made to make sure this remains a cut-above European classic. Plus, this one comes complete with the owner's manual, build receipts, maintenance records, and restoration photos. So, now you know this little machine has had far more spent on it that its asking price. That's why you should hurry if you want this to be your Triumph. Call now!!
