Triumph TR3A/B - Useful Information

Years of Manufacture: 1957 - 1962 Number Produced: 61,643 Chassis Number Range: TS22,014 - TS82,347 Designer: Walter Belgrove & Sir John Black

The successor to the TR3, dubbed the TR3A, commenced production during 1957, and continued through 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, ending in 1962, with a short batch run of the TR3B model. During this time a total of  58,309 TR3A cars were produced, with 3,334 TR3B models.

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.
