Triumph TR3

There was very few changes on the Triumph TR3 throught production period. But one detail helps to sort a TR3 among TR3 As or Bs : the front grille. While early TR3 had a small air intake (shaped like TR2's) with a thick square pattern grille, later Triumph TR3 A and B have an enlarged grille where parking lamps are fitted.
