Roadster 2000


The Immediate Predecessor to the TR2-TR8 Series

The Triumph 2000 Roadster is of particular interest to the Triumph enthusiast, as it is the immediate predecessor to the well-known TR2-TR8 series of sports cars. A lesser known distinction for the car is that it was the last production car to feature a rumble seat. (A “dickey seat” in England.)

The 2000 Roadster is essentially the same as the prior Triumph 1800 Roadster, with minor changes, and the Standard Vanguard 2088cc engine.

I have owned a Triumph 2000 Roadster since 1989. It took 3 years to restore, and the Triumph Roadster Club provided a wealth of information before, during and after the restoration process. We show the car and enjoy it tremendously.
