Rally Cars for sale

Rally Preparation Services are thrilled to have been asked to put up for sale this charming 1959 Triumph TR3A.

 

The TR Register report that the TR3A was at the time “The best-selling side screen TR”, taking over from the TR3 when launched in January 1958. The car came with front discs as standard; an innovation that had only just become available on a few mass-produced cars since 1955. Coupled to a 100bhp engine which gave a reported 0 – 60 mph time of 12.5 seconds the TR3A was a winner, and with the new wide mouth front grille and external door handles the car was easily recognised as the next generation TR3. The TR register also state that a production run of 58,309 cars were built from 1957 to 1961, with only 1,896 finding their way to the UK market with the rest exported globally.

 

TR3A’s were known to be light, nimble, and fast making them successful competition cars in the right hands – achieving notable results on events such as the RAC Rally, The Monte Carlo Rally, and the Coupe des Alps amongst others. TR3A’s achieved numerous outright wins, team awards, and class victories in competition and indeed four factory entered Triumph TR3As lined up at the start for the 1958 Monte Carlo Rally with all time rally hero Paddy Hopkirk behind the wheel of one.

This car we are told was imported from the USA as a standard car before receiving a full bare metal nut and bolt restoration along with some gentle rally modifications on its return to the UK. The current registration document shows that the car was registered back here in the UK in 2008.

 

The car is great fun to drive and makes heads turn wherever it goes with its appealing colour, curves, and lovely exhaust note. For either a classic car simply to enjoy around the lanes or to tackle more demanding adventures in spirited competition this TR3A will bring many a satisfying smile.

 

The car is currently with RPS’ sister company, the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.

 

All viewings and test drives welcomed by appointment at Rally Preparation Services.
