Top tr?

If the no nonsense style of the TR2 and TR3 don’t appeal to you, yet the driving delights do, then seek out a Swallow.

Based upon the TR2, the Doretti is a bit more in tune with 1950’s style and so easier on the eye. A much more expensive and exclusive car than the TR when they were rivals (care of its alloy body and leather trimmed interior) at £1102 against £956 for the TR3 back in 1955, resulted in only 250 being made. Rarity should ensure higher prices – and one recently sold for £50K – but, generally, values are TR-like.

Repairs and restoration are naturally harder than with a Triumph, especially that body.
