Introduced in 1953, the Triumph TR2 was created to get a piece of the US sports car market. The model was a strong seller thanks to its affordable price, good looks and thrilling performance. The TR2 was powered by a 90-hp tractor engine with double carburetors and four cylinders, which would be a major attribute of the model’s success. The body was designed by Walter Belgrove who had to keep simple in order to lower the costs and was given as an example the Jaguar XK120. The 1954 Triumph TR2 is distinguished by its elegant cut-away doors, small front grille and doors extending down to the bottom of the rocker panel. The early TR2 models were commonly called small mouth, long door, whether the examples built after the first thousand had shorter door skins and were called small mouth, short door.
A total of 8,636 examples of Triumph TR2 were built between 1953 and 1955, a large number of which were exported to the American market.
