Triumph updated its Roadster model for the 1948 season and renamed it as the 2000 Roadster. The 2000 used a new Standard Vanguard engine of 2088cc mated to a three speed gearbox with column change.
The Roadster body remained mostly unchanged from the earlier 1800, although some extra brace panels were added. The 2000 also used a new hypoid axle and had larger brakes to cope with the higher top speed. Practical Classics December 2007 - Featuring Buyers Guide Triumph 2000,2500 And 2.5.
