Sidescreen TRs (BP53454)
In 1953 Triumph released a brand new two seater roadster which they named the TR2. In a market dominated by British cars, this newcomer soon established itself amongst other marque's such as MG, Morgan, Jaguar and Austin Healey, in what is considered the golden age of British sports cars.
With a genuine top speed of over 100 miles per hour, the RS's 1991cc engine mated to a four speed transmission with optional overdrive proved to be strong and reliable, winning not only races, but an enthusiastic following that kept the TR range in production right up to 1981.
This book focuses on the motoring history of the sidescreen TR from 1952 to 1962 in Australia. From when Sir John Black conceived the first model and brought it to market through a company more famous at that time for building the Ferguson Light-weight tractor, to the end of an era, this book will no doubt please any sports car enthusiast
