The "TR3A" has been garage and barn stored for the last 40 years. Had been in the same family for 50 years. Last painted in the late '70's Very solid example ready for a full restoration.
Under the hood the "Triumph" is pretty much all original down to the original air filters. Inner fenders/nose area are in good condition with no evidence of any previous accident damage. Battery box is in good condition with just a small rust area at the top portion where the battery edge rubbed as shown in the picture. I was not able to rotate the engine and cannot confirm whether it rotates or not. It should be expected to do a full engine rebuild.
The interior is all complete down to the original seats. Original "Banjo" style steering wheel in good condition. Dash is all original and not cut up and includes all of the original gauges. It did not come with the original key, owever I do have a new key and cylinder that will be included. Odometer shows 31,847 miles believed to be original as conveyed to me by the long term owners. As noted, loors are solid with rust limited to some small spots behind driver's side seat. Jump seat area has a few rust spots as well.
The Body is in solid condition but will need to be restored. Both rocker panels are very solid as well as the bottom of both front fenders. Both rear quarters are solid as well as shown in the pictures. Has original floors that are in good original condition as noted in the pictures. Frame looks solid as shown in the underside pictures. Trunk is solid with some rust spots at the rear wheel arch. Has some rust bubbles along the top of the rear quarters. Nose panel/grill in very good condition and very straight. Doors close fine without any of the typical binding at the door jamb. Windshield is free of cracks.
Original factory "Wire Wheels" with old Bias Ply Tires. *Rear brakes are locked from sitting.
Includes original convertible top frame in good condition. There is no convertible top.
