Description
This is a very nice, numbers-matching, 1959 Triumph TR-3A roadster with overdrive. It had a frame-on restoration several years ago and has been well maintained since. The original color was Powder Blue, but it was repainted in the more beautiful shade of Wedgewood Blue. The original transmission was upgraded to a fully rebuilt overdrive transmission which makes the car more enjoyable to drive. The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate is included confirming the car retains its original motor and body. Quite a few repair receipts are also included dating back to 1975.

MECHANICAL / ELECTRICAL: This car runs and drives extremely well. The engine starts easily and is one of the smoothest and most responsive I have found in a TR3. The overdrive transmission functions wonderfully -- this car was clearly set up to drive and enjoy. The engine runs cool and has excellent oil pressure and compression (between 140 and 145 lbs. in all four cylinders.) The gauges, lights, wipers, and electrical systems are in great working order. The tires look new. The odometer currently reads 60,970 but it is sold mileage-exempt because of the age of the car.

INTERIOR / CHROME: The leather interior is in spectacular condition. The top looks practically unused. The side curtains show some age, but a complete new bracket kit is included if you want to install them. The bumpers and chrome are in excellent/like-new condition. The chrome on the windshield side posts shows some wear, but the windshield glass is perfect.

BODY / PAINT: I was told by the previous owner that the frame and floors are original, and they look very solid. The paint is excellent and I don’t see any chips or scratches.
