Triumph TR2
Sir John Black always had a vision for a sporting brand, and he pursued this first with the Triumph 1800 and 2000 Roadster, and then attempted to follow this up with a car that proved to be awful. A new design was put together for the 1953 Motor Show built on unused Standard Nine chassis, with coil spring front suspension from the Triumph Mayflower, and the Standard Vanguard engine downsized to 1991cc. Walter Belgrove designed the body with as many flat panels as possible to keep costs down. The TR2 could reach 107mph, and 8,600 were sold before production ended in 1955 in favour of the TR3 model.
