1957 Triumph TR3 Ex-Works rally car
TRW 736 is one of the three famous “TRW” Works rally cars. Built in April 1957 at the Standard Triumph Competition Department in the Birmingham factory for the works rally team under the supervision of Ken Richardson who was instrumental in Triumphs Roaster success. Equipped with disc brakes, a straight four 2.0ltr engine and the distinctive Apple green paintwork they entered the 1957 European rally season. Because of the fuel crisis in the Suez and fuel rationing Motorsport almost came to a halt at the beginning of 57. The three cars competing in two major rallies, the Tulip and the Liege-Rome-Liege. Its first outing at the Tulip Rallye driven by John Waddington and William Cave took 1st place in the GT class beating Paddy Hopkirk in TRW 737. Frenchman Bernard Costen and his navigator Bernard Pichon managed a 3rd place overall at the Liege-Rome-Liege. With a relative quiet life after competing this remarkably original car with continuous history had a three-year restoration to bring it back to its original “Works” specification completed by TR Enterprises. Finishing in time to compete in the 2012 Liege-Rome-Liege Rallye. Eligible for the Mille Miglia, last entered in 2021, Goodwood and Le Man Classic. Current FIA HTP passport valid until December 2028.
