Dinky 111 - Triumph TR2 Sports


One of the most-famous sports cars of its era, the Triumph TR2 was produced between 1953 and 1955. Over 8,500 were manufactured in that relatively short period of time, yet only a few hundred survive today – making this stylish roadster highly desirable among classic car enthusiasts.

Triumph sports cars never quite achieved the mass appeal of their MG rivals, yet this fast, good-looking car achieved cult status and was, for a time, Triumph’s most profitable model. Dinky modelled the TR2 as part of their famous ‘100 series’ along with the Sunbeam Alpine, MG Midget. Austin-Healey 100 and Aston Martin DB3S.

It was originally available in 1956 (until 1959) in a ‘competition finish’ of turquoise with red seats, or salmon pink with blue seats. Later versions (from 1957 until 1962) sported yellow paintwork with green seats, or grey with red seats – in what Dinky referred to as a ‘touring finish’. The easiest way to tell the two versions apart is that ‘competition’ cars feature a driver in white racing overalls, complete with numbers on the car doors, whilst ‘touring’ versions have a driver dressed in grey and no numbers on the doors.

i didn't have this exact model as a kid, but i had other dinky cars, and this one ticks all the boxes. really nicely made. great packaging. one would be hard pressed to tell the difference from vintage stock.
