1960 Triumph TR31960 TRIUMPH TR3A SPORTS ROADSTER. WHITE WITH RED TRIM, BLACK WEATHER EQUIPMENT. 4-SPEED. WIRE WHEELS. HEATER. FIXED STEERING WHEEL. A VERY NICE, SOLID AND STRAIGHT CAR STORED FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS. MATCHING NUMBERS ENGINE. NEEDS SIMPLE RECOMMISSIONING.
Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this well-preserved TR3A. This car was recently purchased out of a collection from the Pacific Northwest where it was stored indoors for the past 30 years. As a result, the body appears very original, decent, and solid with driver quality paintwork. A previous owner was in process of replacing the TR3A non-syncromesh gearbox with an improved TR4 full-syncromesh unit, which the car now has. For some unknown reason, the car never returned to the road but sat in storage all of these years...
The body on this car is very good with all original sheetmetal. It is the later "raised hinge" body with the improved pressings for better rigidity. The car still retains it's original floors which are very solid overall, needing only some small repairs to the seat track holes and a few front corners, and definitely nice for the originals! The body panel gappings look correct and acceptableto the doors, hood, and trunk. Crawling around under the car, everything looks very good and in order, front and rear, with an excellent frame/underchassis.
The engine turns nicely by hand and ran very well before being put away in storage. Today, the car would most likely need a servicing of it's brakes and fuel system to get it up and running/driving again.
The car's interior trim is in decent condition overall, but could benefit from some newer carpets. The car includes a very nice tonneau cover, decent serviceable black top, and sidecurtains that could use some plastic windows replacing.
Overall, this attractive TR3A in nice colors is good value, and with some mechanical "tinkering" by its next owner it would prove to be a very usable and approachable road car.
