Trouble identifying a classic - can you help?

In the 1950s my father drove an English sports car, convertible with a small "jump seat" in back in which my sister and I could sit. I seem to recall it had semaphores. I always thought it was an Austin Healey, but can find no match. We lived in California and it had left hand steering. Any ideas?

It was probably a Triumph 1800 or 2000 Roadster, that preceded the Triumph TR2. We didn't have an entry for this in Classics, so I made one: classics.honestjohn.co.uk/reviews/triumph/triumph-.../
