1962 Triumph TR3B
A rare and unique 1962 Triumph TR3B. One of only 2804 ever built, these cars used a 2.138 L., 9 to 1 compression, 105 hp engine mated to new synchronized gearbox. This engine and transmission were developed for the soon to be released ALL NEW TR4 in 1962. These late TR3’s featuring this new engine were denoted by their commission numbers beginning with TCF. This car’s commission number is TCF 93.
Well documented from the 1970s, always garaged, this car was owned by a collector in Vermont and sold to its most recent owner in 2015. The car benefits from a huge amount of well-documented restoration, service and repair work over the years. This includes a new wiring harness, new battery with tiedowns and cables, complete new brake system, new exhaust system, professionally rebuilt steering box, rebuilt SU carburetors, professionally reupholstered interior including new LEATHER seat covers over new seat foams with seatbelts added. Floor insulation was added prior to the new carpet set being installed. The suspension system has been completely refurbished including bushings, Tie rod ends, shackles, ball joints, wishbone bushings, etc.
A new distributor was installed with new vacuum advance unit as well as a Lucas super coil. New switchgear was installed during the refurbishment which included reworking the dashboard, adding a Moto Lita style wooden steering wheel, interior door panels and a new top. The car rides on nice radial tires fitted to refinished wire wheels with new spinners attached to new hubs. The entire clutch hydraulic system was replaced.
Much more work has been done and is fully documented. The car comes with a luggage rack and wind wings installed as well as stone guards over the headlights. Also included are the original tools, a car cover and service books. Please feel free to contact me for more information or details and visit my website at eurospec.website 919-623-7144
