Triumph TR2 – 1955


This Triumph TR2 in absolutely stunning condition can be entered for the Mille Miglia. That is, if you really want to drive this body-off restored car, finished in shiny black with burgundy red top and interior. Another option would be to put it in your garage, leave it there and admire it, because the result of the three-year restoration (2002-2005, fully documented) is definitely worth it: the beautiful paintwork, the upholstery, the top (in the same colour as the interior), the chromework, the Moto-Lita steering wheel, the engine bay, well, everything really. Ever since the restoration was finished in 2005 the Triumph has only had one owner. This 1955 model is one of the last produced, just before the TR3 came on the market. The TR2 was a real best-seller: during its two-year life span 8,500 examples were made, most of which were sold in the USA.


Launched in 1953, the TR2 was Triumph’s attempt to acquire a stake in the growing sports car market in the United States. In total, 8,636 TR2s were built between August 1953 and September 1955, most of which even ended up in the United States. The TR2 is widely recognized as the “car that started it all” for Triumph. The combination of spicy performance, good looks and affordable price made the car a bestseller and was the base of the successful TR series as we know it today.
