This matching numbers 1961 Triumph TR3A underwent a full nut-and-bolt restoration for a customer. The car was originally an American export, where it spent its life in California before being imported back over. It was evident the car came from a dry state, with the body panels and underbody in fantastic original condition.
During the extensive restoration work, a full suspension and braking overhaul was carried out, as well as a fully rebuilt engine and overdrive gearbox. The body had a bare metal respray in Connaught Green and the interior had cream leather seats with dark green wool carpets. All new water/electric/fuel systems were installed and the car was finished on 72 spoke chrome wire wheels.
Lots of upgrades were installed during the project to make the car more user friendly as requested by the customer, including a full CSI electronic ignition kit, alternator conversion, as well as having a servo installed to the clutch pedal.
