Known History

The Triumph TR 2 is the successor of the Triumph 2000 Roadster. TR 2 which was built from the year 1953 until the year 1955. The Triumph TR 2 was the first sportscar in the long, successful, Triumph TR history ending with the TR 8 in the mid-1980ies.

The car shows a very remarkable body shape with deep door cut-outs and very nice flowing wing- and tail-lines. The headlights are located way up in front of the bonnet looking a bit like frogeyes.

The Triumph TR 2 is a no nonsense sportscar; very robust, simple and reliable, a true British sportscar all over. The engine was a Standard Vanguard based, cast-iron, long stroke, in-line four cylinder with a displacement of 1991cc. The engine was equipped with two S.U. carburettors giving a power-output of almost 100 bhp.

 

The TR 2 is a pure two-person roadster, a classic generously giving you the fifties British sportscar feeling, rough but honest. It comes with a simple soft-top for weather protection. Separate clip-on side screens can additionally be attached to the doors.
