1960 Triumph TR3A
Sold for $29,700 at 2009 Worldwide Auctioneers : The Houston Classic Auction.
The TR3A is distinguished from its predecessors by its exterior styling which was revised to adopt a new nose panel with a wide-mouth, egg-crate grille, and the headlamps were slightly recessed for a smoother line. There were slight modifications made to the windscreen fixings and door and trunk hinges, and the door handles were standardized by 1959. In terms of performance, the biggest change was the introduction of Girling front disc brakes.

In total, there were around 8,600 of the Standard Triumph models built between 1953 and 1955. Around 58,200 TR3A models were created during 1957 to 1962.

The TR3A offered a top speed that exceeded 100 mph and a zero-to-sixty mph time of around 11.5 seconds. This example is an early example of the TR3 and has been the subject of an exacting restoration which was completed in 2006. The restoration costs exceeded $40,000. It is finished in black lacquer with red interior and white piping. The car rides on wire road wheels, and there is a chrome luggage rack, a soft top, and side screens.

In 2009, this Triumph TR3 Roadster was offered for sale at the Houston Classic Auction in Seabrook, Texas presented by Worldwide Auctioneers. The car was estimated to sell for $25,000 - $35,000 and offered without reserve.
