1959 Triumph TR3A

: 1959 Triumph TR3A in perfect condition, British racing green, lots of extras.
Comm #TS45174L
Engine #CT10002E (2138cc TR4 or TR4A engine)
Reason for sale: I just retired at age 72 and wish to do more international travel.
So, the car won't be driven very much. I'd like to find a good home for this beauty with someone who will enjoy her.
Car has been kept in a sealed garage (also to protect it from rodent damage).
I purchased car in July 2007 with 4500 miles shown on speedometer. Actual miles on engine unknown.
Positive features:
Has original owners manual.
4-speed transmission (NO overdrive).
No body rust nor under-body decay.
The convertible top, side curtains, top boot, and tonneau cover are all color matched to the tan color seats.
Side curtains have plexiglass windows that slide to open.
Full spare tire with tools including original lead hammer to remove lug nut.
External battery trickle charger.
Heavy duty 27F-60 battery.
165R15 radial tires in excellent condition. No cracks or splits.
Comes with the Kwik-lift car lift system. Makes oil changing MUCH easier. Photos and details shown below.
Upgrades to make the car more fun to drive and reduce routine maintenance:
Converted to spin-off oil filter.
Dual brake cylinder with silicone brake fluid.
Alternator replaces generator.
Auxiliary radiator fan with dash mounted indicator light (you'll see the green light in the photos)
Rack and pinion steering.
Electric fuel pump.
Negative ground system replaces original positive ground.
New dual H6 carburetors
As with all early British sports cars, there is a slight seepage of oil from the main bearing seal.
I drive it only occasionally, so start-up idle is a little rough. You're going to have to clean the two carburetors.
The Kwik-lift is portable, adjustable, very mobile, and engineered in a way that a car guy can appreciate.
What we have is the top of the line "Full Kwik-Lift Package"
The Full Kwik-lift comes complete with:
2 Front Legs
2 Front Ramps
2 Drive up mini-ramps
2 Rear Ramps and Legs Assemblies
1 Llift Tube
1 Centerlift Bridge
2 Wheel Chocks
3 24" Rods (2 Hinge Rods, 1 Swivel Rod)
Full Powder coating in black
1 Complete Hardware Kit: 8 bolts, 8 washers, 8 nuts, 2 clips
The unit is adjustable in length and width, and will EASILY fit in any normal size garage.
It is capable of handling 5000-6000 pounds.
It is also 100% USA built, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Kwik-lift is made of laser cut high strength steel from United States steel mills, and then powder coated. Kwik-lift raises the bottom of your tires to 20" off the floor, placing the chassis between 30" and 36" off the floor, right at that convenient height for you to work in comfort.
