Car description

This 1960 Triumph TR3 is one of three TR3's that I currently own (also have aTR4 and a TR4a). I bought her in May 2016 in Northern California and took her home here to Southern California where she subsequently received a body-off refurbishment in British Racing Green over black. This last weekend she took Best in Class at English Motors at Fairbrook Farm, in Fallbrook CA.

Power is from a replacement 2.0-liter inline-four linked to a four-speed manual transmission with a rebuilt Laycock overdrive, and service carried out included work to the driveline, suspension, electrical system, exhaust, and more. This TR3 is supplied with a soft top and weather gear, previous service records, refurbishment photos, and a clean California title in my name.

The car was repainted from blue to its original British Racing Greenfollowing installation of a newbattery tray,floors, sills, and trunk floor from Moss Motors. For the paint, she had an epoxy sealer, hi-build primer, final primer after blocking and sanding, 3 coats of base and 3 coats of clear then wet sanded and buffed.

The chrome hinges, fuel filler cap, and rear overriders were replaced and new stainless steel fender beading was installed during reassembly. There is a 1/2" touch up on the right front fender and awiper scratch on the windscreen glass.

Her painted 15″ wire wheels wear Nexen SB802 tires in size 165/80 that were fitted along with new knock-off spinners from Moss Motorsin April 2019.The black AMCO soft top is shown mounted and raised above, and a top boot cover is included in the sale.Matching door, trunk, and ignition locks using one key have been added.

The interior features seats and door panels trimmed in black vinyl with white piping, black carpeting, and a matching vinyl dashboard. Thetrunk is lined with a new Hardura mat.
Chrome-ringed auxiliary gauges in the center of the dashboard display water temperature, oil pressure, fuel level, and amperage. The 5-digit odometer reads just over 74k miles, 500 of which have been added by over the last two years.
The inline-four is a replacement installed under prior ownership which is stamped TS 41362 and displaces 1,991cc. Since I bought her the engine was inspected and fitted with a newtiming set, water pump, seals,high-torque starter, and wiring harness. Compression figures of 135,135,140,142. I also flushed the radiator and coolant passages, and fluid changes and a tune-up with new spark plugs and wires were performed in April 2019.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a resurfaced flywheel and a four-speed manual transmission with a rebuilt Laycock de Normanville overdrive. The clutch, hydraulic cylinders, and U-jointsare new, and I installed fresh suspension bushings and shock absorbers. AMoss Motors stainless steel exhaust system has also been fitted.
She's available to view anytime before the end of the listing with a few hours notice. If you wish to fly to view, I'm willing to drive her the hour or so to either San Diego (SAN) or Ontario (ONT) airports to facilitate. For International buyers, I'm willing to include transportation to Los Angelus port to your shipping broker. All other shipping is the responsibility of buyer. The car is also available locally and I reserve the right to end the listing early
