The Triumph 1800/2000 Roadster was a two-door convertible produced by Triumph after the war. But it was a little frumpy, as if they were trying to design a Rolls-Royce sports car. That model left production in 1949. In 1953, they followed it up with this, the TR2. It was much more along the lines of a sports car. And it started a sports car dynasty that lasted for decades – through the TR8 in 1981.
Between 1953 and 1955, just 8,636 examples of the TR2 were produced. This one was sold new in South Africa. It’s powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four that was rated at 90 horsepower, which was enough for a top speed of 107 mph.
It remained in South Africa until 2005, at which time it was relocated to the Netherlands and later made its way to England. It’s now offered there at no reserve. Click here for more info.
