Dinky Toys 105/111; Triumph TR2
The Triumph TR2 was built between 1953 and 1955 by the Standard Motor Company in the United Kingdom, during which time 8,636 cars were produced. The DVLA revealed in 2002 that only 517 examples of this car remain on UK roads. The car used a twin SU carburettor version of the 1991 cc four cylinder Standard Vanguard engine tuned to increase its output to 90 bhp (67 kW).
The body was mounted on a substantial separate chassis with coil-sprung independent suspension at the front and a leaf spring live axle at the rear.
In common with a number of other sports cars at the time Dinky Toys offered a choice of touring (105) or competition (111) trim. It has also been reproduced by Norev for Atlas Editions.
The touring finish car was made from 1957 to 1960 in grey or lemon yellow with early cars having painted hubs and later cars having spun hubs.
The competition car was made 1956 to 1959 in salmon pink, light blue or turquoise with either red or blue hubs.
