This TR3 has been off the road for over 20 years. stored in Milwaukee for the past 12. It was purchased by previous owner here on ebay as a project and he never got to it. It spent most of its life in New York. Now in Missouri.
This car is in one piece. Nobody has taken it apart before so it is a prime candidate for a complete restoration.

I believe this car to be original with the following ID numbers.
VIN TS11858L
Engine ID TS12269E
Body cowl tag EB11499


It's all here. all in one piece. It will need rust repair in the floors. rockers. rear valance below spare tire compartment. and bottom of fenders.

It also seems to be here however I don't believe that these are the original seats and not sure what they came out of. All gauges intact as you can see from the pic of the dash area.

The battery is bad but the car can be started with a good battery and an alternate fuel source. Engine sounded good. no knocks or other funny noises. The clutch and brake hydraulics will need overhauled as neither of them are working. This car is equipped with an overdrive transmission. Since it is not driveable. I do not know the condition of the transmission. The car rolls freely and the tires hold air.

A fellow ebayer asked me if this car still has the original low port Lemans cylinder head. I have now included pics of it. Yes. it does still have it.

There is an old top that is worthless in the trunk. Top bows seem to be in great shape. Side curtains are here but need restored.
