1958 Triumph TR3a - Fully Restored with Overdrive For Sale

Triumph TR3a - Fully Restored with Overdrive The TR3a produced between 1957/1962 was equally at home as everyday transport, rally stage car across Europe or on the racetrack at Le Mans. Today original UK cars are highly sought after offering utterly engaging motoring with 1950’s style. At Milestone Classics we always like to keep a small selection of Triumphs in stock and simply could not resist this stunning wide-mouth TR3a that was manufactured on 30th June 1958. This car is well known in the club as she was owned (1983 to 2010) by John Soffe, the Overseas Co-Ordinator for the TR Owners Club. John drove thousands of miles all over Europe in this car (and the second TR that he owned) visiting overseas club events and assisting branches set up. In the early 2000’s he entrusted his pride and joy to a friend who owned a restoration company in Prague and a full no expense spared (photographic) restoration was completed. Today the car presents extremely well with no corrosion and deep shine in the paint – the true test of any restoration. The interior also received attention during the restoration and this has mellowed very nicely with lovely seats, door cards & dashboard In 2010 the car passed to the current owner, an engineer, who was looking for an excellent TR3 for long distance continental touring. Since purchasing work has included: Engine: · Ground crank · Rear oil seal – new kit 63.5mm Clutch: · TR6 clutch re-drill & tap flywheel · Genuine Berg &b Beck 3-PC clutch kit · TR6 release bearing carrier (shortened) · New clutch spigot bush Camshaft · CR-3 Cam – Approximately 140bhp (flywheel) @ 5,200rpm · New followers · Recalibrated distributor with electronic (123) ignition Head: · Unleaded head – inserts fitted and ground · Bronze exhaust guides x 4 · Bronze large inlet guides x 4 · Uprated valve springs x 16 · Head gasket set · Large inlet valve chrome stem set · Large exhaust valve set Bottom End: · Fit new softer piston rings · Figure ‘8’ seals · Front seal · Cam bearings & chain Additional Items: · Fuel pump · Rebuilt front suspension (negative camber) · Heater kit From the golden age of post war motoring the car drives as good as she looks. The overdrive option means the TR copes brilliantly with modern traffic, steering/brakes are excellent, and the exhaust note is simply addictive. ? This TR3a has been driven as far as Bavaria, numerous trips across France and countless weekends away. Ready for new adventures she will provide her new owners with lots of pleasure & happy memories for many years to come.
