1958 Triumph TR3 Roadster
This is a 1958 Triumph TR-3 with a clear Florida title. Please look closely at the pictures and description; it is in extremely poor/rusty condition and it does not run.
THE GOOD: This car has a clear Florida title and retains its original number plates. The car sits level and rolls and steers easily. The engine turns by hand and feels like it has good compression. I was told by the previous owner that the engine is good and came from a 1959 TR-3. The doors, hood and trunk line up okay and it does not look to me like this car has had any major accident damage. The odometer reads 86,795, but I have no idea if that is original.
THE BAD: Please examine the pictures carefully. This car is extremely rusty and is missing many parts. I have no other parts for this car; if you don’t see a part in the pictures it is not included.
IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS: The chassis number is TS25601L, the Mulliners body shell number is EB25678, the Triumph body number is 980879, and the engine number is TS52496E. It appears that the body and chassis are original to this car, but I believe the engine and gearbox came from a 1959 TR-3.
TITLE TRANSFER AND PAPERWORK: I am a long-time classic car hobbyist and a licensed Florida car dealer (Classic Investment Motorcars Inc.) This means that you must complete the required sales and title transfer forms with me, which can be done in person or through the mail. The car cannot be released until I have received all completed paperwork and payment in full.
DOCUMENTATION FEE: A flat fee of $100 is charged on all vehicle purchases to help cover postage, paperwork, vehicle preparation, and other costs. Please understand that this fee cannot be waived. This fee applies regardless of whether you are an individual or a dealer.
SALES TAX: If the vehicle is shipped out of Florida by common carrier or freight forwarder I will not need to collect sales tax (you will take care of that where you live.) If you live in Florida, or pick up the car in Florida, then I am required to collect applicable sales tax and tag/title fees. If you live in another state and pick up the car here, most states will give you credit for the sales tax I collect (in this case the sales tax rate will be the lesser of 6% or the rate that applies to you in your state.) Please feel free to contact me before bidding to find out how the tax rules will apply for your individual state.
DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT: A $200 non-refundable PayPal deposit is due within 24 hours of the end of the listing. The balance must be paid by cash, cashier’s check, or wire transfer within seven days. All cashier’s checks must clear the bank before the vehicle can be released. If the buyer does not pay in accordance with these requirements, I may, at my option, make second-chance offers or re-list/remarket the vehicle and the deposit will be forfeited by the buyer.
SHIPPING: Arranging and paying for shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. We are happy to cooperate with any shipping company you choose, domestic or international. We may also be able to help you arrange shipping at a good price, but the responsibility will remain with you.
THIS VEHICLE IS BEING SOLD AS-IS, WHERE-IS, WITH NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. Please feel free to come inspect the car in person or to have it inspected by a third-party inspection service.

Please note that if you are the winning buyer you will have entered into a binding contract to complete the purchase in accordance with eBay rules.
