I always wanted this car, but ended up never had it! How sad!
This is a Triumph 3. It was built between 1955 and 1957 by Standard-Triumph in the United Kingdom, during which time 13,377 cars were produced, of which 1286 were sold within the UK; the rest were exported mainly to the USA. Original price (basic model) - £950. As of 2002 there were only 893 registered TR3/3a's on UK roads. In the movie "Aimez-Vous Brahms," play boy Anthony Perkins drove around in this car picking up Parisian girls, not that that was my intention then for wanting this car. This car was powered by a 1991 cc straight-4 OHV engine which initially produced 95 bhp increasing to 100 bhp at 5000 rpm. Imagine that, 100 horse power.
This is parked across from Dadeland mall and it looks in tip top shape. The owner must have parts specially machine shopped if he/she ever needs them.
