1957 Triumph TR3 TS16942LO
We purchased this TR3 in December 2002 from this photo by the previous owner. The car was located in Sarasota, FL, and following a 4 day road trip it arrived home at Macy's Garage on Dec. 31, 2002.
The car ran, but just barely. There was no interior, the wiring harness was frayed and crumbling, and the fenders were loosely held on with 2 or 3 bolts each, all finger tight at best.
Over the next 6 months, we stitched up a concours quality interior, installed a new wiring harness and top, re-hung all of the fenders and doors, and cleared up any other mechanical problems that we found. The car was ready for it's first outing in June for TRA 2003 in Wadsworth, OH.
This car has been very reliable, and it's the car we most often drive to car shows, cruise-ins, and for pleasure drives in the country. On many occasions we've even loaned it to friends to attend an event when their car was not capable of making the trip. The paint is a little rough in places, but the fun factor is so high with this one that we don't care!
