Due to a change in plans I have my UK RHD 1958 Triumph TR3A with overdrive for sale.  I purchased this car from TRGB in 2011. they had sourced the car from Northern Ireland where it had been since 1987 with the second owner.  The car had fibreglass wings and had been de-seamed and a coating of fibreglass on the floors and boot but the chassis was good. it ran well and had an MOT.    
Over the last couple of years I have had the following professionally replaced: complete floors. sills. A posts. rear tub rebuilt with complete panels. the rear wings are new steel Moss items.  I have photos of this work.  Currently. nbsp;the front wings and front apron are fibreglass but I have replacement steel items to fit. which I include in this sale.  The front of the car needs addressing now with the fitting of the replacement steel wings and apron. beading and a repaint of the front.   The inner wings will need some attention before this is completed.  The offside door lower skin could also do with replacing.  
Mechanically the car runs well although a little fast on idle when hot. the gearbox. overdrive and brakes work fine but the exhaust rattles occasionally and needs resiting.  Oil pressure is around the 50 psi level.  I think the front and rear suspension bushes should be replaced.  I've used the car for local journeys with no problems.
The rear of the car has been repainted and is fine the front of the car needs to be redone. I had planned to get this done when the wings & apron where replaced.  All instruments and gauges work fine. however the temperature guage is a mechanical speedwell replacement. all the rest are original items.
The car has a current MOT and is taxed. although exempt both! 
Since owning the car I have had: New radiator & switched cooling fan installedStatic seat belts fitted Electronic ignition installedFour Steel wheels blasted & powder coated  Four new vredestein sprint classic tyres and tubes New fuel tankRenewed H6 carbs & air cleanersReplacement alloy rocker cover(original retained)New windscreen glass installed & reinstated air vent
The car has a full tonneau. hood stick cover and hood. these items are old but serviceable.  The side screens could do with restoration.  There are correct rubber floor mats in the footwells but there isn't any carpet in the car also a pair of wheel arch covers are needed.  Door cards & the rear board covering the petrol tank are present.
I have all the MOTs from 1987 to date that show the car has been sparingly used over this period. about 10. 00 miles.  I have the heritage certificate and some history that shows the car was originally powder blue and also that the engine has been changed at some time.   
I have some spares with the car to include: Refurbished dash centre panel Front suspension wishbone rubber bushes Inner wing splash guards Dzus side screen brackets/Dzus fittings Furflex seal. boot seal. spare wheel cover sealSteel front wings (in primer) Steel front apron & beading
With a bit more work this could be a nice. solid. driving TR3A that won't cost you £25k.  If you have any questions please let me know. Viewing is strongly recommended since you are bidding to buy. the car is located in Reading Berkshire.  A £200 deposit within 24hrs of auction end by Paypal is required. balance can be cash or other means although cleared payment will be required prior to collection.  UK bidders only.
