Hi I am selling my 1960 Triumph TR3 which I bought with the sole idea of completing a full restoration.

Unfortunately. shortly after purchasing the car. I was diagnosed with cancer so any restoration work was put on hold while I underwent treatment.

As I improved in health I thought it was time to resurrect my project but. unfortunately. my cancer problems returned. and after undergoing a long and very tiring additional round of treatments it's time to admit that I no longer have the energy required to undertake this project.

About the Car.

I bought the car from a lady who inherited it from the estate of a loved relative.

She told me how she remembered riding in the car as a child. and of all the good times she had.

The owner. a doctor from Nevada. owned the car for many years and I have documentation of work he had done on the car during this time.    They are included in the sale.

Since then all the upholstery. carpets and door cards have been renewed and are shown in the pictures of the car.

Also included are a small amount of spare parts I had started to gather. ready for the start of the restoration. along with books bought detailing a full restoration of the car.

The car has a very sound chassis. bottom seals under doors are sound. as are the openings around both doors. a known weak point on these cars.

The engine starts and runs with a good oil pressure. fifty pounds pressure at idle. shown in pictures.

All Lighting is in working order.

Now for the things that I know need looking at.

The needle has come off the rev counter and this needs to be disassembled and reattached.

I was going to replace the front and rear wings/fenders. as the front one has a split in it and the rear shows signs of filler. These unbolt. so replacement should not be that difficult or you can repair the ones on the car if you want to.

Tires are new. although several years old. but show no signs of cracking. so it's up to the new owner to decide what you want to do.

This is a nice car for its age and an excellent base for a full restoration or just to do the basics and drive as is.

The car is being sold as is with no warranty implied or given.

Arrangements for transport are the responsibility of the new owner although I will assist in any way I can.
