Current customer rating: (71 votes) based on
Finished in the classic combination of Signal Red with black interior. black mohair weather gear and 72-spoke chrome wire wheels. And fitted with the all-important overdrive gearbox.
The car was the subject of a total nut and bolt. body off restoration. taking over five years. in the early 90s. The car has a fantastic history file including every bill and receipt from the restoration. The body was completely rebuilt by The Northern TR Centre. The engine was completely rebuilt with an unleaded cylinder head and rebuilt carburettors. All wiring was renewed. The interior completely retrimmed in original specification black with white piping with all new weather gear. The bills show that every part on the car. large or small. was rebuilt or replaced at substantial cost.
This TR's last owner acquired the car in 1999 and kept the car for 16 years. Always garaged. he covered just over 1000 miles in his ownership. In total it has covered around 17k miles since its restoration. As such the car is still in absolutely exceptional condition. It's superbly finished underneath. The engine bay very well detailed. the paint and chrome are fantastic. and the interior unmarked. Recently it has been fully serviced and had a new set of Vredestein Sprint Classic tyres fitted.
As you'd expect the car drives superbly. Sometimes you really have to remind yourself this is a fifties car because they perform so well on today's roads.
In short. a beautifully restored. UK-supplied TR3a that requires nothing from its next owner other than driving and enjoying.
