Triumph TR3B – 3,331 built, mostly TSF Commission numbers and identical to the TR3A with 1995cc engine, later ones like mine are TCF Commission numbers with the TR4 2138cc engine and all synchro gearbox and (Graham Robson quote) ‘’the TCF TR3Bs are very coveted machines’’ The car for sale is a 1962 Triumph TR3B in Spa White. BMIHT Certificate confirms that the car has the chassis, engine, body numbers and colour configurations that it left the factory with. The car has never been apart or rebuilt, so is likely one of the most original 3Bs left. The original carbs have been replaced with HS6 (TR6) units, the steel wheels are powder coated, the car has halogen headlights and a multi blade cooling fan. The hood and tonneau have been replaced, the seats recovered in leather, and the front apron and wings painted due to stone chips. The engine was rebuilt at 85,000 miles and a rear crank Revington oil seal fitted at 111,000 miles. Apart from that, a fairly comprehensive set of records suggests that routine maintenance has been the only other interference. It appears never to have been involved in any major accident, towing straps having left the most obvious defects on the lower edges of the rear wings. When examined by a Triumph engineer in Denver, the car was described as ‘’obscenely original’’. It comes with the original steel wheels plus a set of 60 spoke painted wire wheels and new chrome spinners. The car drives well with good oil pressure and has great patina. The car was dispatched on Sept 18th 1962 to Standard Triumph in Los Angeles and sold to its original owner who kept it till 1970. A dealer in San Jose passed it to its second owner who kept it till 1977. She sold it to her brother who kept it for 18 years, moving to West Virginia and then Colorado. When he collected it, he recorded a 5 day 2,500 mile trip averaging 32.5mpg, and the story was published in ’The Triumph Herald’, the monthly magazine of the Rocky Mountain Triumph club.
