Description
This Triumph TR3 has been imported from the dry state of Texas where it appears to have lived for most of its life.

Bodywork and Chassis appear to be in almost perfect rust free condition.
This will form a great starting point to your TR3 restoration. nbsp; bodywork restoration is often the most expensive part.

Paintwork looks great from a distance but closer inspection shows micro blistering. probably caused by the Texas sun.
Ideally needs to be painted but equally could be left as it is for a good usable car

Engine requires attention as it appears to be seized through lack of use.
Does not appear to be any external damage so maybe a full rebuild can be avoided by the use of releasing fluid and some patience.

Other mechanical parts will require some refurbishment due to lack of use but everything looks present and correct

Comes with hood and tonneau cover.

Interior and seats are in good overall condition

All the other parts and components appear to be present with no obvious damage or major missing parts.

With the Triumph TR3 being a very popular car marque here in the UK all the parts required for restoration are easily available from the many TR3 specialists here in the UK. many available next day and often costing less than you may think.

Offered for Sale
This TR3 is now for sale with an asking price of £14. 00

Fully restored these cars are typically seen on the market for around £25. 00 
So if you are prepared to spend some time and a little money you will have a running car for much less than it would cost to buy one.
Even very rusty examples needing lots of bodywork and full mechanical rebuild are selling for £10. 00 to £12000

If I do not sell it then I may well restore it myself next winter but then obviously the price will then rise considerably.
