The sports car market was dominated by the MG in the early 1950s built by British Motor Corporation. In 1952, Standard Motor Company launched the sport car prototype, dubbed the 20TS, to succeed its own Triumph Roadster. The following year, the updated and vastly improved TR2 was introduced on a ladder-type chassis with a longer body and the four-cylinder, twin SU carbureted Standard Vanguard two-liter engine.

The TR2 became the darling of the sports car market. Zero-to-sixty took just 12 seconds and top speed was achieved at 107.3 mph, making it the lowest priced British car able to exceed 100 mph.

This particular Triumph TR2 was one of the last examples made and still wears its original factory color of red with light leather interior. It is believed that the car lived its entire life in California until its current owner purchased it in 2007. The car was then given a show-quality condition restoration. The car has been driven less than 400 miles since it left the shop.

Between 1953 and 1955, Triumph produced 8,636 examples of the TR2.
