PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS CAR IS TOTALLY DISMANTLED. THE MAJORITY OF ITS COMPONENTS. HOWEVER. APPEAR TO BE PRESENT.
 TR3 (TS8955) WAS BUILT ON 28TH OCTOBER 1955 AS A RIGHT HAND DRIVE MODEL DESTINED FOR EXPORT TO NIGERIA. IT WAS BRITISH RACING GREEN WITH BROWN TRIM AND A FAWN HOOD.
THREE YEARS LATER THE CAR RETURNED TO THE UK AND ON 21ST MAY 1958 WAS ALLOCATED A BRITISH REGISTRATION NUMBER (3 NUMBERS 3 LETTERS AND TRANSFERABLE)
ALL DVLA DOCUMENTS SHOW THE ENGINE NUMBER AS TS11081E. HOWEVER THE ENGINE BEARS THE SAME NUMBER BUT WITH THE PREFIX CT THIS. THEREFORE.  BEING THE LARGER TR4 ENGINE WHICH MUST HAVE BEEN FITTED PRIOR TO 1974
IN 1989 THE CAR WAS SOLD BY TR BITZ AS A RESTORATION PROJECT TO A FAMILY IN LEICESTERSHIRE AND IT REMAINED IN THEIR POSSESSION FOR 24 YEARS OVER WHICH TIME IT WAS DISMANTLED.
THE FAMILY HAD THE NECESSARY REPAIR WORK DONE TO THE CHASSIS AND MANY NEW BODY PANELS WERE SOURCED AND SOME OTHER NEW ITEMS PURCHASED SUCH AS BUMPERS. WIRING LOOM. REAR LIGHTS. INTERIOR TRIM KIT. HOWEVER WORK ON THE REBUILD NEVER COMMENCED.
IN OCTOBER LAST YEAR I BOUGHT THE CAR AS I HAD BEEN LOOKING FOR TOTAL REBUILD PROJECT. HOWEVER. UNFORTUNATELY DUE TO A RECENT DIAGNOSES OF HEATH ISSUES I HAVE DECIDED THAT I CANNOT EMBARK ON THIS TASK.
I HAVE THE 'STANDARD REGISTER' EXTRACT FROM THE PRODUCTION RECORDS CONFIRMING THE COMMISSION NUMBER AND BODY SHELL NUMBER. THE FULL DVLA RECORDS. A CURRENT V5 AND ALL OF THE MANY RECEIPTS FOR PARTS BOUGHT BY THE PREVIOUS OWNERS.  
THE CAR IS FOR SALE EXACTLY AS I PURCHASED IT. TOTALLY DISMANTLED. AND SUITABLE TRANSPORT WILL BE REQUIRED.  COLLECTION FROM REDDITCH WORCESTERSHIRE
IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH COLLECTION. I DO HAVE A CONTACT FOR DELIVERY - AT COST.
