Seller's Description

Triumph TR3A Hardtop Barn Find suitable for restoration or Historic Racecar.


Triumph TR3A, late 50's model? (build year unknown) with factory option steel hardtop, 15" wire knockoff wheels, rear 'occasional seat' option (missing the bottom).
This was garage find purchased from Deceased Estate, it has been stored in dry brick garage for at least 25 years according to the Executor. found coins under the seat they are from 1966 1967 make of that what you will.
The car is 95% complete as far as can see, the front bumper is missing as is the rear seat bottom.It looks like the reason it was taken off the road was to replace the clutch as the gearbox, tailshaft clutch have been removed there are new clutch plates in the boot the gearbox, tailshaft, etc. are still present included with the car.
There is some pretty major rust in the floors pillars (the lower door hinges have rusted through) also major rust in the bottom of the r/h front wing the battery tray.  the lower corners of the bootlid are holey, the bonnet, left door front panel seem to be rust free, the boot floor  looks solid.The good news is that all the rust repair panels are available from the U.K. from SC Parts probably others.I can't see any rust in the chassis anywhere.
The engine is not running as the car did not come with key but it turns freely is complete, the dipstick registers full so there's plenty of oil in it, the Generator has been removed for some reason is in the boot. The thermostat housing is unbolted, top radiator hose is missing. The Temperature  gauge has also made it's way to the boot at some stage.
The seat bases are solid but the upholstery is very sad, steering wheel is cracked, dash pad is good, all gauges are present, windscreen glass frame look good. Hardtop only no rag top.All the tyres hold air the car rolls freely.Still has both the original Lucas headlights.
I'm no Triumph expert but I'm happy to check answer questions on specific things about the car so ask away.Or even better come to my workshop in Braeside have look for yourself. 
Despite the rust issues believe the car is restorable thanks to the availability of all the repair sections panels, also believe the engine will run with some minor attention as it's most likely the car was driven into the garage to replace the clutch.
It is currently on trailer as seen in the pics to make inspection of the underside easier. can also deliver the car within reasonable distance of Melb. if required.
The starting price is the reserve so someone will get themselves bargain here, there are only TR3As for sale in Australia at the present they are priced between $42,500 $59,000
Cash on pickup/delivery only for this car. will supply receipt with all the car's details so re-registration will not be problem when the time comes.
