Triumph's TR3, quintessentially British and era-defining...

  • Subject to a complete body-off restoration and the engine was fully rebuilt
  • Refinished in its original Sebring White with a splendid red interior
  • Large rebuild file with photographs and invoices. Heritage Certificate. Original registration number
