Two owners, last owner since 1971, a beautiful original example of this rare model, wire wheels, very clean body and paint (a bit faded but amply nice for road use), 71,000 original miles, never had or needed major repairs.
Did a compression test, 185-190 psi in every cylinder. Took it down the road, 50-60 psi oil pressure when warm, no smoke, strong performance, brakes worked well, VERY impressive.
Brand new top and tonneau. Original side curtains are quite nice, original chrome is VERY good, wiring seems excellent, nice interior (including the dashboard and cowl surround) in red with white piping..
Imagine driving this car for a season AND THEN having it painted black. Gosh, what an exquisite TR3A this would be.
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.
