Following Triumph Standard’s expensive assault on Le Mans with the Sabrina engined TRS, a revised Triumph competition department was formed that would focus solely on rallying. Four cars were built and campaigned between 1962 and 1964, registered 3 VC, 4 VC, 5 VC and 6VC. These cars competed extensively across Europe, contending most of the significant international rallies of the period.
These four cars differed significantly from the standard road cars with a strengthened chassis, aluminium bodywork, stronger suspension, Perspex windows and significant improvements to the engine and drivetrain including specially modified cylinder heads, dual-choke Weber carburettors and highlift cams. They were painted Powder Blue.
The history of this 3 VC, sometimes referred to as the lead car from the four car line-up, is extensively documented by Graham Robson.
