This article’s lead section does not adequately summarize key points of its contents. The Triumph TR3 is a British sports car produced between 1955 and 1962 by the Standard-Triumph Motor Company of Coventry, England. A traditional roadster, the TR3 is an evolution of the company’s earlier TR2 model, with greater power and improved braking. TR, so named for its employment of removable plexiglass side curtains, was a sales and motorsport success. Although the car was usually supplied as an open two-seater, an occasional rear seat and bolt-on steel hard top were available as extras.

The suspension is by double A-arms, manganese bronze trunnion, coil springs and tube shocks at the front, optional anti-roll bar, and with worm and peg steering. The wheels are 15 inches in diameter and 4. 4 and the Porsche 356, but not much more than the MG-A and MG-B. All except the Morgan, which shares the same engine, are substantially less powerful as is the Sunbeam Alpine. Under most conditions the car is very responsive and forgiving, but it has some handling issues. The chassis, which is shared by the TR2, TR3, TR3A and TR4 has limited wheel travel. As a result, on very hard cornering, the inside rear wheel can lift, causing sudden over-steer due to the increased load on the outside rear tyre.
