1959 triumph TR3 with a hot cam TR4A engine and Triumph 250
Seats.Turn key car. with 6000 miles on the rebuild This car was
stolen from a Cincinnati Paul McCartney Concert in the 1970's and
damaged in the rear left fender. This was the second Triumph stolen
that night as the police had chased him in a Spitfire as well. They
caught the bad guy... but his taste had improved through the
evening I might say! Owner was disgusted and parked it and it sat
till 2010ish. When I obtained it, it still had the hotwire
wiring... Cool huh! The car has new outer frame metal, floorpan
metal and sills. The car has been completely gone through with all
new brake lines and parts. Front brakes have been upgraded to
Toyota truck brakes for Badazz stopping power. This is a standard
bolt on conversion so easypeazy. Transmission is a standard 4 speed
that shifts great. Engine camshaft was upgraded to a Katsner D mild
street cam last century so you can blow those Sunbeam's off the
road, the added bondo just settles the car.. . It has new
headgasket, rings, bearings, and racing rear oil seal. Seatbelts
have been added so you can autocross it! Alternator is a reliable
GM unit, Lucas alternator/regulator still available, But why? Tires
are Coker tires, wire wheels are later TR4 if I remember correctly,
All seals on the rear axle were changed when taken apart as well as
front suspension rebuilt as well. This car is tuned for 7000 ft but
drives excellent from 10,000 ft down to 4000ft. Fun driving windy
road mountain car but does fine in stop and go city traffic. If you
like 'stop,go,stop,go traffic', straight roads, masks and
roachcoaches, Buddy.... do I know a club for you! One issue Fuel
gauge has not been repaired for decades and was sent to England,
and has not returned yet, float in trunk needs replacement too. One
gallon fuel container NOT included, you can look in the fuel tank
to see where the level is anyways as I have done for a decade.
Wipers and turn signals work as well as brake.
