TRIUMPH - 1956 TR3 with FIVA Passport

This car was sold by Premium Classic Cars. just over a year ago. following extensive restoration work done in our workshops here in Suffolk during the Autumn and Winter of 2011.

A change in circumstances for the owner. sadly poor health has led to Premium Classic Cars. not hesitating to purchase the car again.

During the recent months the car has had sparing use in Italy. which has included a classic car rally around the shores of Lake Como. Never seeing any precipitation running faultlessly in the Italian sunshine.

This TR3 from 1956 is fantastically original. stunning on painted wire wheels in matching body colour and with correct Period blue interior and beautiful matching navy blue Mohair weather gear. including custom Tonneau and navy blue restored period correct side screens. a car that turns heads every where it goes. This car fitted with the extremely rare period finned grill a rare car indeed. With a well documented history file the provenance is excellent and the investment potential extremely well underwritten.

This car has a number of highly desirable “Extras ” must haves for those planning an assault on the Mille Miglia or indeed any of the worlds leading classic car events. or which the TR3 is so well suited. Specification includes.

High flow radiator with Kenlowe fan.

Drivers and passenger removable FIA Willans harnesses in black made for this car by Willans to an original TR3 works pattern.

Fire extinguisher

Pair of Tag and Heuer rally time clocks including stop watch.

Monit 100 fully calibrated  retro trip meter calibrated to the car.

Twin period driving lamps.

Uprated period correct competition rear leaf springs  with poly bushes throughout. all 4 x corners.

Dynolite. fully uprated charging system supporting 40 amps current draw facilitating full use of trip meter and lights etc simultaneously.

Period Le Mans rear leather panel straps.

Twin 12 Volt outlets discreetly mounted for Tom Tom. mobile phone charging.

FIA battery isolator and kill switch.

Polished and ported head with hardened valve seats for use with modern fuels.

72 Spoke painted competition wire wheels.

Correct period very rare luggage rack.

Upgraded brake linings / for fast road use with competition clutch plate / lightened balanced flywheel. in short a great fast road spec that takes nothing from the originality of the car. Hard wiring for second coil as back up for quick change on events with period correct positioning in the Engine bay.

The Car is offered for sale following our engine-out-detailing thus in summary a faultless car equally at home on show or in any paddock!
