1959 TR3



1959 Triumph TR 3 For Sale

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.
