Technical specifications, photos and description:
This auction is for a 1960 Triumph TR3A project.
The vehicle has just emerged from a 35 year spell in bone dry storage. The vehicle was taken off the road in '78 and has spent the following 35 years garaged.
Having carried out a thorough ramp inspection of the underside. we were absolutely amazed by just how good this car is. The chassis and metalwork on the underside are exceptional for an unrestored vehicle (See pics) - Floors. boot floor. inner wings. chassis and all usual suspect areas rot free. the original factory applied satin paintwork visible beneath a light layer of dust.
The only rot we could find was directly beneath the battery. where a trickle of acid has rusted the battery box at some stage. Thats it.
Topside. the bodywork is also great - Some dings and scrapes from storage. but again no rust just good original panels & gaps. The interior is original but distressed. cracked leather on the seats etc. It will require re-trimming. The rev counter is also missing from the dash.
Mechanically the car will require a full & thorough overhaul. the engine is not running and the brakes are sticking etc. No doubt after this length of time in storage it will all require overhauling / servicing / rebuilding etc.
Vehicle is sold with U. S title document and NOVA registration form proving UK import taxes have been paid. Two sets of sidescreens are tucked away in the boot. both require re-trim.
In summary. an exceptionally good. original resto candidate - If I hadn't have seen it. I wouldnt have believed it! Not to be missed. I doubt there are many left like this
