According to its accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, chassis TS12856 was built as a RHD, home market TR3 on 22nd August 1956. However, for reasons unknown, it was not issued with the Warwickshire registration number 'WNX 525' until 17th June 1957. A handwritten letter on file suggests that the Triumph was updated to TR3A appearance early in its life, perhaps by the factory, supplying dealer or first owner? Whatever the case, the 2+2-seater sports the wider radiator grille, front disc brakes, exterior door handles and lockable boot handle that typically identify its younger sibling. Treated to an extensive restoration by then custodian W. Harrison Esq from 1985 to 1987, the Triumph had attention paid to its bodywork, interior, brakes, suspension, gearbox (plus overdrive), brightwork and engine etc. Refinished in White with Black upholstery (piped White), the TR subsequently belonged to Sir John Robson Rogers between 1993 and 1998. Executive Chairman of the Royal Automobile Club Motor Sports Association and Vice Chairman of the Royal Automobile Club at the time, Sir John apparently had quite a lot of fettling and checking done to the car including a chassis analysis by Rubery Owen before trading it in with dealer Neil Crabb against a Maserati Mistral Spider! Entrusted to Edward Labinjoh Cars Ltd of Edinburgh for an engine overhaul during November 2000 at an indicated 34,000 miles, 'WNX 525' benefited from a reground crankshaft, rejuvenated oil pump, new bearings and unleaded cylinder head conversion. Entering the current family ownership in July 2001, the Triumph was used for various TOPS Club events and the Rallye de Paris etc. Now displaying an unwarranted 36,000 miles, the 2+2-seater has recently been recommissioned following a period of dry storage. Thus, its history file now contains a 'no advisories' MOT certificate valid until February 2020 as well as a sales brochure, instruction book, workshop manual, assorted old MOTs and numerous bills / invoices.
