A 1956 Triumph Tr3 Small Mouth in old English red with black interior.Comes equipped with a 4 speed manual transmission, Original Dual Carburetors, Original Knock Off wire wheels.and includes the Soft To, Side Curtains and Original Spare tire with the Original Jack .
Very Charming Example having the same owner for 40 years. Was stored in a heated garage on dollies for the last 15 years with the gas tank dry and oil squirted into carbs
After I received the car. I Had my Mechanic go through Car and give me all the Good and the Bad
  • Car was started after putting fresh gas in Tank and after unplogging a gas line that was a little gunked up. Car runs smooth with no smoke. I have a Video of car running and can send to you---- Only 75k miles on engine
  • Had engine running for several minutes / there appears to be no leaks
  • All gauges and lights work / Dash look Great
  • All parts on Car are Original --- including steering wheel
  • Soft Top and Frame are in great shape
  • All gears shift as they should
  • Interior is in good shape with no rips
  • All chrome is in good condition
  • Floors and Frame are Solid
  • Exhaust appears to be newer / 2 mufflers
  • Appears a restoration was performed on car years back. there are areas where metal was repaired and rivoted in place---- in trunk by wheel wells,.floor boards,
  • Paint is shiny but cracking in areas
  • Rear passenger tire has a slow leak
  • Clutch is a little soft / master cylinder may need to be replaced
  • brakes work fine
So were on the same page lets consider this TR3 to be a good candidate for a restore. Even though it runs and drives / all mechanicals should be checked out to make it a driver. The Cracking Paint could be repaired or Drive it as is
