1961 Triumph TR3A

Two owner UK car; stalled restoration; unused for many years but much of the work looks to have been done; needs re-assembly and recommissioning

Dating from November 1961 this dusty old TR3A features the 2.0 litre OHV four-cylinder engine up front driving the rear wheels via manual transmission and is in a state of unfinished, stalled restoration.

Believed to be a two owner car judging by the part green old-style V5 document which states no previous owners since September 1983 and looks like it has not been on the road since the last road tax expired in November 1991 and no new V5 has been issued since the current in July 1985.

Looking relatively complete despite initial impressions, the car rolls easily, the interior full of many of its presently removed parts. The boot opens and reveals a solid floor, the doors open and close and the bonnet lifts off to reveal the engine in place. If the engine turns, we do not know, no attempt has been made to do so for fear of damage.

The history file includes the part old style V5 as mentioned, an old style green continuation log book which suggests the current owner bought the car off the first in July 1973 and a selection of old sundry bills dating from the late 80s, magazine clippings and spares lists plus owners ‘Instruction book’ manual.

An interesting project that could, and should yield some exciting results.
