1954 TRIUMPH TR2 - TS 2321


Owner and club member Sam Beaumont says:

"With much sadness, we are looking to part with our 1954 Triumph TR2. It was owned (and rallied internationally) for many years by my late father, Jan Pearce, a well regarded figure in the British and international TR community.

Jan used this TR2 extensively to preserve the le Mans car for special occasions. It was featured in "Triumph TRs - The Complete Story" by Graham Robson. Jan's le Mans car, PKV374, recently set a price record for a Triumph TR.


  • The car is a long door Car (Commission number TS2321) subsequently converted to short doors.
  • The Standard Motor Company Document shows a build date of Monday 21st June 1954.
  • The original registration was in Northern Ireland on 1st July 1954. 
  • It was subsequently registered in the UK in 1957, and then purchased by my father in 2007. 
  • The UK original registration was PZ 9300.
  • The car was transported to Australia in December 2015, with an import valuation of 18,500GBP provided by the UK Triumph TR Register Historian at that time.


  • It is fitted with some outer fibreglass panels including the front apron.
  • Transmission: Manual
  • Odometer reading: 89,225 miles
  • Commission number: TS 2321
  • Body/shell Number: 728082
  • Engine number: TS2512E (probably the original engine - UK documentation)
  • Cylinder capacity: 1991 CC (probably now 2130 or 2200cc in view of the rally history of the car)
  • Wire wheels and good tyres

On arrival in Australia the car had significant work completed by professional mechanics including:

  • Dismantle & strip front steering & suspension
  • New bushes & fulcrum pins
  • Front wheel bearing kits
  • Front sway bar bushes
  • Front shock absorber rubbers
  • New grease nipples

Whilst much remains original, some upgrades have been undertaken over the years, including:

  • *Front disc brakes (as per the le Mans car)
  • Uprated gearbox
  • New high performance alloy radiator and electric fan (with originals retained)
  • High port cylinder head with 1 3/4" SU carburetors

The tonneau is in very good condition and the car comes with a soft top and side curtains. The car runs well and is essentially rust-free. It is a sound everyday road car that could used as is or it could be restored to be an outstanding rare long door TR2 with an interesting provenance. We would love to see this car go to a good home, as it has a great deal of sentiment attached!
