1961 Triumph TR3 TR3A powered by a 2138cc TR3B engine Additional Info:

No stone was left unturned in this frame up restoration of the impeccable late model 1961 TriumphTR3 in a striking color combo - British Racing Green over Biscuit. Current owner purchased as a collector car and performed over $12K in upgrades and maintenance in the past 12 months (invoices available). Selling due to unforeseen circumstances. If you have any questions or would like additional photos or copies of invoices, please feel free to email me.
The car is registered and insured in NC with a free and clear title. There was confusion at the DMV (surprise, surprise) as to the year so they titled it as a 1962.

I am very pleased to offer this late model 1961 Triumph TR3A! The car is finished in a classic shade of British Racing Green over Biscuit interior. The car is powered by a 2138cc 4 from the later TR3Bs, healthy upgrade from the original 1,991cc engine, and a fully synchronized 4-speed manual overdrive transmission! These are features found in the later “TR3B” and may suggest that this car was something of a predecessor to that car? The car is further fitted with several nice touches, including side curtain wind wings, electric radiator cooling fan, rack-and-pinion steering and 5.5” TR6 wheels.
It was a local New Mexico TR3A that has been totally frame off reconditioned over the last two years. Car was completely dissembled and sand blasted. Then any rust was removed and replaced with new/repaired sheet metal. Body is very straight with excellent fit. Complete paint in the base coat/clear coat British Racing Green was done, ll rubber trim replaced. New wiring harness, ll trim, upholstery, and carpeting was redone and a new windshield installed. Engine and gearbox plus entire drivetrain rebuilt with new aluminum radiator and electric cooling fan, rakes, exhaust, suspension etc. Interior has all restored gauges, lights and signals functioning as they should. Soft top frame has been restored with a tonneau cover and new side curtains.
New wiring harness, rim redone with new windshield. Engine and overdrive gearbox plus entire drivetrain rebuilt with new carburetors, rakes, exhaust, suspension etc. Complete paint in British Racing Green, and all new leather and trim pieces in the cabin. The car runs and drives exceptionally well thanks to a recently rebuilt motor and transmission. The car makes for a very drivable and presentable example of one of Britain’s most popular roadsters and should make the next owner extraordinarily proud both at local shows and on short road trips! We would welcome any additional questions on this TR3A; please don’t hesitate to ask.
