Triumph TR3 Original Colours supplied by John Skinner Ltd
It is widely accepted that the interpretation of original shades varies depending on who you ask – and may well have varied from the original factory production line. As a result, John Skinner Ltd offers multiple shade options for each original colour.
Colour names refer to internal John Skinner Ltd colour names, not necessarily the names Triumph originally used for these colours.
We can also offer non-original custom colour schemes if you so desire. Please see our online shop for more details.
As part of the quotation/ordering process, we will arrange for samples to be sent for final confirmation – so browse and shop with complete peace of mind, knowing that we will guide you through step-by-step with all the information you require.
A note on Piping/Beading
Triumph TR3 models originally featured White Piping on the majority of cars that left the factory production line, with a few recorded instances of Piping matching the main trim colour.
We can also offer the largest range of non-standard “bespoke” colours schemes for those looking for a more customised finish.

Triumph TR3 - Useful Information
With the success of the TR2 model the Standard Motor Company, under the guidance of Sir John Black, started production of the Triumph TR3 in 1955. Throughout 1995, 1956 and 1957 a total of 13,377 Triumph TR3 cars were produced, varying between the Short and Long door versions.
John Skinner Ltd has produced awarding winning interior trim and upholstery kits for over four decades, including contributions to the Jabbeke MVC575 restoration, as well as the TS01 and TS02 cars – meaning that we have been involved in arguably three most important restorations of the TR era. We also had the honour of working on the restoration of the TR3A used in Federico Fellini’s lauded 1960 Italian film “La Dolce Vita” – winner of the coveted Palme d’Or.
