We always love to see our competition winners enjoying their new cars but the update from our TR3 winner Karl Reilly was even more special.
Last Thursday Karl drove his sister Claire to her wedding at Brasted’s lodge in Framlingham Pigot. Our TR3 makes for the perfect ‘Something Old’ and ‘Something New’!
“It was such a shame it rained all day, Karl tells us. “But it was still great fun to drive with the roof up.”
“My sister loved it, it really made her day! The owners of Brasted’s Lodge loved it too, it received a lot of attention!”
As it turns out, Karl had won the car a day after his 50th birthday. After a challenging year, our TR3 was the perfect birthday present for Karl and the perfect ride to Claire’s wedding.
Congratulations to the happy couple, Claire and Andy!
This week we announced the two lucky winners of our competition.
Karl Reilly from Essex won the 1968 Triumph TR3 with his lucky ticket number 4174. Karl is a triumph lover, already owning a yellow Triumph GT6 so we know our TR3 will be in good company.
Today Karl drove a close relative to their wedding in his new Triumph and we can’t think of a better way to experience your first drive in a new car!
Our second winner was Lee Polley from Hull who won the beautiful 1991 Mini Rover with his lucky ticket 410.
We’ve been so overwhelmed with positive comments from other competition entrees and supporters congratulating the winners.
If you fancy your chances at winning a classic car, you can enter our current draws on our 1962 Triumph TR4 or a suave 1999 Mercedes 280SL.
“We all buy a ticket in the hope we win, but we never expect to win.”
Our most recent winner, Karl Reilly from Essex, was delighted to receive our 1957 Triumph TR3 today with his lucky ticket number 4174.
He’s putting his new TR3 to good use this week, driving a close relative to their wedding on Thursday.
Karl is a Triumph fanatic, already owning a Triumph GT6, meaning the new TR3 will feel at home in the hands of a Triumph Club member.
If you’d also like the chance to be a lucky Triumph winner, we’ve got the TR3’s little sister, the TR4, up for grabs now!

Having serviced and maintained the TR3 for some time here at Bridge Classic Cars, we have first hand experience of this truly special example of one of the finest and most iconic British sportscars.
Restored in 2017 to exceptionally high standards by Triumph TR3 Specialists ‘TR Trader’ at a cost of over £42,000, the car is a greatly sought after and a rare find in right hand drive. Over 90% of TR3’s were left hand drive, predominantly made for the US market.
To add to the already incredible back story of the car, being a 1957 Triumph TR3, it also qualifies for the world famous Mille Miglia which having that credibility, hugely increases the value of this special car.
Finished in British Racing Green with Biscuit trim and Biscuit piping the car has undergone a serious transformation in it’s lifetime and is a credit to it’s former keepers.
Tickets are limited to a maximum of 6875

Ady has replaced the ignition system on our Triumph Tr3 as the distributor was worn out.
This gorgeous Triumph TR3 is such a credit to it’s keeper. It’s been getting plenty of attention sitting pretty in our workshop. This newly restored TR3 is in for it’s third year service.
Mauro and John have changed the engine oil and ensured all fluid levels are correct. We’ve lubricated all the required chassis and running gear components. we’ve checked the engine valves and given the car new filters.
Being a historic vehicle, no MOT is required. However for additional peace of mind, this vehicle has sailed through her MOT.
There was a small fault with the passenger door which has now been rectified. The door was needing to be slammed harder than you’d expect for a TR3. This was caused by a stud bolt being slightly too long, causing additional friction when shutting the door. We’ve ground the bolt down and now the door shuts percetly.
Lovely work, Team.
Our 1957 Triumph TR3 is in today with a faulty indicator. Firstly we cleaned out the connections to the switch. We then replaced the relay and bulb and cleaned out the connections on the bulb. This repaired the fault so the car was good to leave us once again.
Returning to our workshops today we have our stunning 1957 Triumph TR3; getting ready for the summer shows with a service and MOT.
Passed with flying colours…
