Triumph TR2 1954


Specifications


Description

 If it's a classic British roadster you're after, you cannot afford to ignore the TR2.

Said to be the cheapest British car to top 100mph, the TR2 received plenty of plaudits from road testers of the time and "fun to drive" was a regular comment. And they were right, the TR2 is just that. 

Its 90bhp may not sound a lot today, but allied to compact dimensions and light kerb weight, it was more than enough to entertain an enthusiastic driver.

  • Car comes complete with detailed log books, original manual and literature / side curtains, soft top, tonneau cover and with (extremely rare to find) factory hard top.
  • In Immaculate condition throughout.
  • Runs and drives incredibly well.
  • Sound, rust free body with very good paintwork in British Racing Green
  • Immaculate interior
  • Very authentic – hard to find in such original condition.
  • Low Mileage – Low Ownership
  • A rare find – won't last.

It was Triumph boss Sir John Black's desire to emulate the success of MG that led to the rapid design and launch of the TR2. What the company delivered was a simple, but robust little roadster. Based on a pre-WW2 Standard chassis, it borrowed the proven 2.0-litre engine from the Vanguard model, making it a quick car. Few cars are as entertaining as a classic British drop-top and the TR2 is one of the best examples of the breed, while that straightforward and sturdy construction makes it hugely tempting now.
