Triumph TR3A 1960

Triumph TR3A 1960

We at Fender and Broad love these side screen TR cars. We have been privileged to own, race, rally and show some of the very best and most famous of these cars.

The Triumph TR  series started life with the TR2 in the mid fifties and evolved over the years before the final volume sidescreen car known as the 3A preceded a small number of 3B’s and then then all new Michelotti designed TR4 arrived in the early 60’s.

This particular car is a UK right hand drive vehicle retaining its original body, engine and registration number. This car was delivered new to Carlisle in March 1960 as one of the last 3A’s made.  The V5 log book history is detailed with the original buff logbook confirming the car was powder blue when first sold to James Stephenson of Whitehaven on the 16th March 1960.  The buff logbook details all the further owners and a colour change to green before the car was restored body off chassis some years ago by a previous owner.

The car was restored some 10 years ago with the body off the chassis to effect a full restoration.  Whilst it was and is 100% structurally solid the paint wasn’t a bright and polished as it could be. So we decided to strip the car and repaint it. We also decided that chrome wire wheels would really set the car off nicely. So they are also new with new tyres. Now 363 BAO presents really well and worthy of any critical inspection by discerning buyer wanting the best. The trim and carpets are ‘as new’ and the gauges are all refurbished and working correctly.  TR’s are all about the driving and this car is a lot of fun to hustle around the highways and byways of the UK. The car would equally be at home cavorting through the alpine roads as I have done many times before in a TR3A powered by the fruity, lusty 4 pot unit with overdrive delivered in 2nd, 3rd and 4th gear. That said this car happily sits at 80mph on the motorway and can return 30mpg with ease.

The weather equipment is as new. We have up rated the car with poly bush suspension, Dynamo lookalike alternator conversion, electronic ignition, kenlowe fan, Revington steering to give the perfect package in respect of appearance with reliability upgrades.

Sold with 12mth 3000mile engine and gearbox warranty and a fresh MOT. The history file is very good and represents a great chance to own a rare and well restored TR3A.
