This 1956 Triumph TR3 (small mouth) is a completed sold project that underwent a full nut-and-bolt restoration for a customer in Malta. The customer requested an upgraded spec, with various modern upgrades to help with both performance and reliability.
The car was stripped to a shell and due to its excellent condition stone chipped under the arches, underneath and inside in preparation for painting.
