The Nation’s Trusted Consignment Dealer, Many Locations Nationwide 1961 Triumph TR3 Stock: 4226-CHA Engine Size: 1991 cc Inline 4 Transmission Type: 4 Speed Manual Exterior Color Black Interior Color Oxblood Miles: 22, 673 (Unknown) Location: Charlotte, NC Vehicle Options Build Receipts Defrost Front Disc Brakes Heat Leather Seats Manual Convertible Top Removable Hard Top Seatbelts Description Here's the kind of car/story you always want. This 1961 Triumph TR3 is coming off of long-term ownership by someone who cared for the car correctly and restored all the top items. And so this enthusiast's machine is ready to drive out of our showroom today and hit 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 are beautifully crafted into the body. The long flowing fenders and low-cut doors carry a more dramatic line than even the Jaguar 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 knock-off wire wheels only heighten that feeling. But the freshly restored slick black paint really gives the roadster a more sophisticated attitude. In fact, you get to select your level of refinement with a choice between a tight tan folding soft top and a color-match black hard top. Of course, no top is out true preference when it's time 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 Oxblood red leather interior looks against the black 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/Lucas gauge package, grabbing the grippy sports 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.
One of the reasons why the TR3 is a sought-after roadster from the early 60s is under the hood. The 1991cc motor was one of the larger displacements for the class outpacing other icons like the MGA. What makes it even more special is that this original motor was rebuilt a few years ago, and so the engine bay looks fantastic today. The bright head cover attracts plenty of attention within the color-matched black fender walls, and those twin SU carbs are something we all look for at the car shows. The motor's nice condition also 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. Plus, the front disc brakes are a welcomed feature for added control in this sprightly roadster. And from the undercarriage photos, you can really tell the level of care and investment that went into the fundamentals of this Triumph.
Complete with build/restoration receipts, you know this European classic 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!
