A beautiful restored, rust free early 'small mouth' TR3...last owner for over twenty five years, long 'show' history (with multiple first place trophies) all new interior, new top, wire wheels, excellent drive train, new wiring harness, very nicely detailed engine bay, very few miles on a rebuilt engine (70 psi oil pressure when warm, no smoke, excellent performance, no oil leaks), carbs rebuilt, brakes just done, front end and steering rebuilt (including rebuilding the steering box, a typical TR weak spot), 110 mph performance, disc brakes, a wonderful investment with the added advantage of mechanical simplicity, contemporary performance, great style, and a lot of fun to drive.
Black with black interior (with white piping), new tan top, tonneau, boot cover, side curtains, and heater.
What a sensational collector's sports car. Rare (only around 4,700 were imported in 1956...684 in 1955), easy to maintain, incredible rugged and reliable, from the cut down doors to the classic dash and instruments, wire wheels, delightful lines....really identifies the term 'classic English roadster.'
Whether on a high speed interstate, zipping around country roads, or sitting on the grass field at s show, this is a fabulous true sports car capable of giving years and years of reliable (and fun) service to its new owner.
