Relisting Lowered Reserve Triumph TR 3 small grille roadster rare early model with stunning character. hand crafted finely finished wood dash all nice gauges and switches which are correct for car and functional. Really nice interior. carpets. seats ect. Painted wire wheels . One wheel may be bent. This auto was restored by my father and had been sitting for some time. He started to recommision it a couple years ago and got sick and passed last Nov. I was helping to get it going and it seems he had put a new repro fuel pump in it which does not have the correct threads for the fuel line. It must be metric and will need to be addressed. He told me one rear wheel was bent but he had driven it a bit ; I think 4250 mile . hich is what is showing on the speedometer he must of had rebuilt . but I have not come across a receipt for it. I got the car out. cleaned it up and road tested it to a small car meet near his house. which is when I found the fuel leak and all the tires failed badly and it had to be limped home on the shoulder. So all the Tires will need renewed. They hold air so could be driven onto a truck. The paint cleaned up really NICE with a deep shine of old ;there is a chip on the nose (see photo) and I would respray some of the door and hood jams. We have a little paint. The interior cleaned super nice with no cracking or tears although there is a chip from the top bow but it does not distract from the over all fantastic appearance of this custom color int. I saw the top there but I can't say it is great or not I know it is servicable. think it is black. The eng runs great starts right up . The carbs. fuel lines have been cleaned . gas tank removed and sealed. there are no funny noises or vibrations. Trans is tight and shifts right the brakes are 100%. This is a all around great car which is well known in the Triumph car clubs. It is a stand out at any show and always gets compliments. Other than the dash and colors it is not modified in any way from original. The grille is in great shape and chrome and trim is orig. The wind wings are showing some age but are easy to replace. With a little effort this car could be a real gem. My dad had a lot of cars so we need to make some room to deal with the others. So we would like to sell as is where is and must be picked up by the proud new owner with in a reasonable time after sale. We need a $500. 00 nonrefundable deposit with balance in cash in person. If you need to ship by a third party other payment can be arranged but must clear for 3 days before car will be released. I will not disclose the reserve so don't ask. The car will not be sold out side of ebay once there is a bid. I try to be accurate in my ads but I'm sure there are ?'s I have not covered ; so call on my cell phone any time 240-994-3404 or ask on ebay I will reply right away. If you would like to look at this car you will have to call to arrange a viewing. The car is located near St Michaels Md.
