Overview

Overview

The “Triumph TR3B” is an unofficial name given to the final version of the TR3. It was offered concurrently with the TR4, which started production in 1961. The “TR3B” was a special short-production run in response to dealer concerns that the buying public might not welcome the TR4. This is a rare and unique opportunity to acquire an original 41,000-mile TR3B. This example was built on July 10, 1962, and left for Standard Triumph Motors of San Francisco California on August 8, 1962, aboard the Pretoria from King George Dock, Kingston Upon Hull, England. It is equipped with a Powder Blue finish, a black interior with white piping, and a black top and tonneau cover. All are still original to the car. Additional optional equipment includes an adjustable steering column, windscreen washer, heater, synchromesh gearbox, and an 86mm bore engine all still original to the car. It is additionally fitted with a factory hardtop. This TR was a California car until December of 2016 when it was relocated by its new owner, a British car collector, to Vero Beach, FL, and now resides in Georgia. When not in use, the 1963 Triumph TR3B Roadster has been stored in a climate-controlled environment. At some point, it was repainted for reasons unknown. It continues to perform and drive just as it was intended from Triumph. The car comes complete with tons of documentation, service records, and rare original literature. It shows approximately 42,000 miles.
