Triumph TR3B

The last of the traditional "Side-screen TR" range appeared in 1957, the TR3A. The new model sported a full width front grille and reshaped front wings. Other additions included improved brakes and exterior door handles!

The very last of these TR3 based models became unofficially known as the TR3B. The TR3B used a larger capacity engine (2138cc instead of the old 1991cc) which would be found in the new TR4 model soon to be launched in 1961.
