The Triumph TR3 is the successor to the Triumph TR2, which went on sale in 1955 after debuting at the London Motor Show
The 88″ (2235 mm) wheelbase ladder frame was fitted with an open-top steel two-seater body. There were no radical shifts in its design, except a new chrome cage grille. Nevertheless, the roadster was a little heavier, affecting its dynamics and economy.
The suspension remains independent on wishbones and springs at the front and dependent on leaf springs at the rear.
