This particular 1955 example was restored in Belgium between 2002 and 2005, and is still in a perfect condition. The colour combination of gleaming black with red leather seats and hood works very well, and the car really looks like a smaller brother of the Jaguar XK120. The big 4-cilinder engine offers lots of torque, and this is a real fun car to drive. The restoration is documented with photographs, and the car only had one owner since finished in 2005. It is Mille Miglia eligible, and a perfect roadster for any historic event. Now ready for a new owner!
The TR2 was introduced in 1953 as Triumph’s bid to capture some of the growing sports car market in the U.S.A. A total of 8.636 TR2s were built between August 1953 and September 1955, a large fraction of which were exported to the US. The TR2 is widely recognized as the car that “started it all” for Triumph. The TR2's combination of lively performance, good looks, and reasonable price made it a strong seller and led to the very successful TR line as we know it today.
