The Triumph TR3 was produced between 1955 and 1962 by the Standard-Triumph Motor Company of Coventry, England.

The TR3’s performance was excellent, powered by a wet-liner 1,991cc inline four cylinder producing 100 horsepower which was five more than the earlier TR2 thanks to its larger SU-H6 Carburettors and additional high port cylinder head with a large intake manifold.

The rugged ‘sidescreen’ TR, so named for its employment of removable plexiglass side curtains, was a sales and motorsport success. With approximately 74,800 TR3s sold across all variants, the model was the company's third best seller in the TR range, behind the TR7.

The suspension is by double A-arms supported by manganese bronze trunnion coil springs and tube shocks at the front plus optional anti-roll bar with worm and peg steering, making for a very responsive handling sports car of its time.

The Triumph was campaigned in races, hill climbs, and rallies across the world with several outright, team, and class victories to its credit.
