The Triumph Roadster 2.0 : 1948-1949

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.

1949 Triumph 2000 Roadster

This Roadster is in excellent condition, having been completely restored some years back. It is painted in "Champagne", with a "rust" interior. It is now used only as a parade and picnic car. The car has a large diameter tubular frame and aluminum bodywork, due to post-war shortages of pressed steel products. It has the Standard Vanguard 2088cc engine (68 HP and 108 pound-feet of torque), and a three speed (three-on-the-tree) transmission. The Roadsters were the last production car in the world with a rumble seat, which is referred to as a "dickey seat" in England. 2000 Roadster ready for show

It is often said that the Roadsters were designed by a committee, and they have been referred to as ugly ducklings. That is why we commissioned a hand crafted swan to serve as our hood ornament. We think our roadster is really beautiful, and we receive many compliments on it The car has won best-of-show at the Reno MG Club's show, and also first place in the Nevada Day Parade
