A Bit of History
My first TR was a white 1961 TR3, with a hardtop. I drove this car from 1965
until 1976 when my father "totaled" it, or so I thought. The car sat on cinder
blocks for 6 years until I encouraged my father to "get over it" and sell it.
A guy from Long Island bought it for $400. That day I found out that the car
could have been restored! Too late!
For the next 20 years I searched for a replacement, finally finding a 1959 burgundy colored TR in central New Jersey. I told the owner that if he could drive it the 60 miles north to my house I?d buy it. He did and I bought it. Serial#TS54979L. According to the P.O. the car was used in a XXX film, I have yet to see the film, nor do I know the name of it.

The "Ultimate" suction cup bike rack set up on the trunk of my original
1961 TR3. Note the aerodynamic styling and neatly stacked Raleigh Record on
top of the Raleigh Grand Prix. This set up was purchased at Cycle Sport, Park
Ridge, NJ around 1970.
