The Triumph TR3a was produced from 1957 until 1962. It's a typically British 2 seater sports car from the late 1950s and early 60's They were great fun to drive, and being fitted with a 95BHP engine, motored along very well in the day.

The car we offer for sale here was first registered in 1960. Finished in British Racing Green with a Grey leather interior. The car is in beautiful condition, and does drive particularly well. But then it wold, because this is no standard TR3a. The history file with the car dates back to 1991 when a full rebuild by one of the top vehicle restorers of the time, with bills at the time for a full body and engine rebuild costing around £11000 which was a huge sum of money back then.

But the history of the car doesn't stop then. There has been a constant history of maintenance and improvement done to the car, work done included:
Engine 1991cc. 
Fast Road Cam
Roller Rocker Gear
Oil Cooler
Alloy Large Capacity Sump
Alloy Radiator
Kenlow Fan
Slotted Front Discs
Alloy Rear Brake Drums
Rack & Pinion Steering
Revington TR Wiring Loom
Uprated Overdrive Unit
Uprated Front & Rear Springs
Spax Adjustable Front Shock Absorbers
Front Anti Roll Bar 
Aeroquip Brake Hoses
High Torque Starter Motor
Stainless Steel Sports Exhaust
To say a car has been maintained regardless of cost would epitomise this car. The bills invoice and receipts in the file total around £40000. So its been cared for like a Cherished Treasure, but she's also been used.

Events such as the Three Castles, Prix des Alpes to name but two have seen this fabulous TR take part, and the car achieved success on more than one occasion. 
If you fancy trying your hand at Classic Rallying then this car would be absolutely ideal coming already fitted with Twin Fuel system, Twin electrics, the Terratrip and, well just so much more.

At £29995 this car cold be considered something of a bargain when you consider how much it would cost to buy a TR3a, and then bring it up not only to this level of Spec, but also the absolutely outstanding condition this car is in today.
