It’s never been in the rain and never been washed with water....ever

A modern day, custom solid state voltage regulator has been designed to give the original generator the recharging power of an alternator while still looking like the factory unit. Not only are headlights brighter but the other components can be used without worry of running the battery dead or not keeping up.

Tachometer is not original to the car( was purchased in California)
Temperature gauge is after market (England)but a very nice remake and works perfectly
Wiper motor does not work but since it’s never in the rain, I’ve just forgotten about it
There are no side curtains on this car but it will come with the brackets for the doors. ( I never found tan Stayfast curtains to match)
There are no seatbelts in this car but it will come with two brand new aircraft style black lap belts.
As all cars made without a rear main seal, it does drip a few drops of oil, its British!

Car is kept in a fully climate controlled garage and cranked once a month. Drives perfectly and is dependable enough to cross the US.
It would be hard to find a nicer example of the TR3A and I will put this one up against anyone to be the best in the country. The photos speak for themselves. Approximate mileage is 3,400 since rebuild and the oil changed annually.

Fully documented restoration receipt book showing every penny spent
As well as insurance and registration history. More photos and videos available, just PM for details.

Buyer is responsible for shipping and insurance during transport

Asking $43,000 OBO
