tr3 ‘small mouth’ 1956
‘driver’ and suitable for low key shows
quite rare with only around
13,000 built…….excellent running and driving…..our tests, 90psi oil pressure
when warm, 130-135 psi compression in every cylinder, zero smoke….couldn’t have
been much better when brand new. no info
on a recently rebuilt engine but the tests would certainly indicate an
excellent power plant. clutch and
gearbox both work very well.
very clean inside and out,
interior appears to be nearly new, paint isn’t ‘pebble beach’
quality but for a ‘driver,’ looks fantastic.
last owner did a lot of work
recently…….spent over $7,000 on: front
end, steering, complete brake rebuild, radiator, suspension, etc. and all invoices come with the car.
has a new top and tonneau,
good set of side curtains, engine bay is very clean, new wiring harness and
mostly new electrics, everything works including all of the original gauges and
switches. has seat belts, spin on oil
filter, exhaust is quiet, and it runs and drives better than most tr3s.
lots of little details….new
top frame, new fuel pump, new radial tires, new chrome knock offs, windshield
appears to be new (and is not scratched), a lot of time, effort and money went
into finishing this car.
all of the chrome appears to
be either new or very good original.
same with rubber, trim, insignias, etc.
all in all, a car that really doesn’t seem to need anything.
certainly one of the real delights with this car is its contemporary
performance….with 100hp, will easily hit 100-110 mph, rapid acceleration, was
the first mass produced car with disc brakes (a decade before porsche had ‘em),
the car even has the optional back seat, also with new upholstery.
will cruise way above any
posted speed limit, handles quite nicely, and is inherently reliable. we can
also offer a buyer a number of options for more fur use and a higher degree of
a lot of work went into this
car……the time, alone, to recover the dashboard and the cockpit surround was
extensive and the results can be seen in the photos.
with test results, descriptions,
and photos, have tried our best to convey the overall condition of this
car. of course, being nearly sixty years
old, there is no warrantee or guarantee whatsoever and like most every other
old car in the world, is sold ‘as is’ and ‘where is.’ we can, however, store the car for as long as
you need and arrange shipping anywhere in the us or overseas.
conditions: contact with the buyer within 24 hours, a
deposit or full payment within 3 days and payment in full no later than 7
days. car has transferable paperwork and
whatever receipts and other papers supplied by the last owner.
