Not sure if anybody was watching this one:
Ebay 1962 TR3A (https://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160360180789&ssPageNam e=STRK:MEWAX:IT)

Like the Cactus Green TR4 Mr. Cascadia sold earlier, this is another high quality restoration. Aside from the quality of work though, I think the lesson for me or any potential seller out there is to follow the lead shown here: many high quality photos showing the work done - I'm sure it takes a while to produce it, but I would argue that it adds thousands to the ebay sale.

I agree on the layout. Good pictures, care given to the text descriptions, impressive.

I notice in one of the pictures are some manuals: Haynes, a TRF log book, what looks to be an original "Practical Hints ..." manual, and the "Triumph Sports Car Instruction Book".

That last one I'm not familiar with. Anyone else have one of those? What was in it, and how does it differ from the Practical Hints manual?

Thanks.
Tom
