Very nice car......seems to have been recently painted, nice job.....for whatever reason (personal choice is one that comes to mind) the exterior emblems and insignia didn't go back on....but, as seen in one of the photos, comes with the car). Underneath looks very good, floors, chassis, inner sills. And most of the chrome is new. Top, side curtains and boot cover all look to be near new, same with the interior with leather seats. All original gauges, turn signal hub works fine, wiring looks very good, engine....our tests, 155-165 psi compression in every cylinder, 80 psi oil pressure at operating temperature, zero smoke, VERY strong performance. Transmission and clutch work well, master cylinders appear to be new, brakes work well, quick stops and no pulling to one or the other side. And exhaust sounds as it should. No rust in the spare wheel well, very nicely detailed engine bay, SU carbs work well, very good ride, no rattles or shakes, has an original heater, new seat belts going in, even has a newly upholstered optional back seat (and yes, we can install seat belts for two kids). All in all, a very nice, excellent running and driving TR3A. With disc brakes, wire wheels, all season and weather equipment, 110 mph performance, and wonderfully classic lines. Hard to beat as a combination and one of the best compromises in a classic sports car.
A Triumph TR3 was the first sports car in which I ever rode, and the most indelible memory is how the car was so low and the doors cut away so much that I could easily reach down and touch the pavement.
