Triumph entered a new model into the growing "executive" sector in 1963 the Triumph 2000. The 2000 used an all new unitary bodyshell combined with a twin-carb Standard Vanguard engine of 1998cc which gave the car excellent performance. All-round independent suspension and front disc brakes ensured excellent road manners, automatic and overdrive transmission were options.
Inside the 2000 featured high quality fittings including wood trim and reclining seats which offered high levels of comfort. The 2000 Estate featured a useful load area which was also well trimmed, all Estate bodies were built for Standard-Triumph by Coventry based Carbodies.
