Description
I purchased this 1957 Triumph TR3 brand new on September 23rd, 1957 from Triumph Incorporated in San Francisco, California for a price of $2,896.35, and have been its sole owner. It's been a California car its entire life. It is a non-overdrive car and has steel wheels as that is all he could afford on his military pay. This car has been very well loved and cared for its entire life, and has countless great stories and rich history under its belt. I can't imagine there are many single-owner Triumph TR3s still left in the world today.

My wife and I are getting too old to get in and out of the ol' red machine, so we're selling it because we know someone will love it and care for it the way we have.

It's not a perfect show car, but it’s a fantastic driver with a fully rebuilt front suspension. The brake and clutch hydraulic systems have also been fully rebuilt with new clutch and brakes installed. The engine is freshly rebuilt with new sleeves. The only known issue is that the heater core is leaking and has been bypassed. The side curtains are older and in need of restoration. It doesn’t have a convertible top but does come with the top bowes and a factory hardtop. It also comes with plenty of spare parts, including a spare transmission.

You can read the full story behind our little treasure of a car can in the May/June edition of the Moss Motoring magazine.
