TR3 for Sale
I bought this TR3A in Florida in 2003. The odometer reading at the time was 34, 000. The car had supposedly been parked in a garage for 20 something years. The Florida owner had replaced the interior, top and had painted the car, but in 2010 I repainted it in the correct color of red. The horn and turn signals were not working, so he added a push button and a toggle switch to the dash that work fine. It took a couple of years for me to get the mechanical stuff taken care of.
Things I have done since I first acquired the car:
- Brake master cylinder, and brake shoes and springs, brake hoses and steel brake line to the rear brakes and rebuilt all wheel cylinders
- All front suspension bushings including upper and lower A-arm bushings and all ball joints
- All four shock absorbers
- Clutch master and slave cylinders
- Starter motor replaced with a high torque one from Moss Motors
- Replaced the canister oil filter with a screw on assembly from Moss Motors (much more convenient)
- Gas tank a few years ago
- The old points and condenser with an Electronic ignition
- Both carburetors the first time around, but several years later just bought new ones
- Generator and voltage regulator
- Added tubular headers that I had Jet Hot coated inside and out, then a different exhaust/muffler system to accommodate the new configuration and give it a bit of rumble
Recently I replaced the steering wheel. The odometer now shows 37, 100. This car comes with the “new” top and the side curtain, but I have never used them. This TR3A runs strong, but has the usual assortment of British sports car leaks and squeaks. I have never felt it was worth it to rebuild the engine, transmission or rear end.
We had no flooding issues when Harvey rolled through. The house and the garage stayed dry.
