Triumph TR3 Rally Car
This is a very special car indeed and probably the fastest TR3 we have ever driven, a true wolf in sheep's clothing if ever there was one! This is a much sought after early model TR3 built in 1955.
This car is fully restored and in superb condition throughout. No expense has been spared in the work carried out by the previous owner with receipts on file from a renowned Triumph specialist totalling over £55,000. What's more this money has been spent on all the right things to make it the ultimate TR3. The car retains all its original features and looks like a classic TR3 but under the skin extensive work has been carried out to make this a true driver's car ready for fast road driving and classic rallying.
A fully rebuilt engine to fast road and rally spec with all new components by RevingtonTR. The suspension has been fully rebuilt/uprated and set up perfectly giving a surprisingly smooth ride; not harsh or crashy but compliant and supple with plenty of grip and feel.
Fast road/rally engine built by Revington TR including forged pistons, rally cam, new bore liners, new crankshaft, new cylinder head, aluminium flywheel and on and on..
Revington overdrive upgrade
Rack and pinion steering conversion
Fuel injection with programmable ECU - Webcon Alpha+ distributorless system
Ball joint front suspension conversion
Uprated springs & dampers
Uprated anti roll bars
Front drilled disc brakes
Rear Alfin brake drums
Stainless steel braided brake hoses
Dual circuit brake conversion
Uprated race type pedal box with individual master cylinders
Uprated windscreen wiper motor with intermittent wipe
Revotec engine cooling fan
Large core radiator & Evans waterless coolant

High power starter motor
In addition the car has had a full rolling road setup with custom ECU mapping to get the best power, efficiency and engine life.
Sitting on a set of four new wire wheels in black and four new tyres (chrome wire wheels also available if preferred). This car retains its original red leather interior trim, seats, dash etc.
Whilst it is fair to say this is not a concours car and it would benefit from some minor cosmetic tidying but even so as you can see from the pictures the car presents very well. Those looking for a show winning concours car in original specification should look elsewhere.
However those looking for the ultimate drivers TR3 for fast road and rallying this is the car for you. The attention to detail is evident throughout; this is a thoroughly sorted car and it would take a great deal of time and much greater expense to build a car to this specification from scratch.
MOT'd until May 2018
We can offer a range of additional options if required including:
Hard top, Rally spot lamps, Rally trip meter, Additional gauges etc etc
Overall this car delivers an intoxicating mix of high performance and reliability whilst retaining its charming vintage style and patina. A very desirable and usable car indeed.
