It would be nice to see what you had left though once you gave it a good acid bath.........

I would think any small-mouth TR3 would attract interest and it does not look too bad at all. A fun project for somebody!

Ah, but what lurks under the fenders is the real judge of the car's condition. Worth a look/see for sure however!

I don't know, mine looked just as bad before I started the resto. That car is doable, 'cept the price is a bit steep.

would be a good project from the looks, sure to be surprises...the price is steep I suspect because it runs...most think that's what you should pay for (when they've never done a resto).
I don't care about a runner, that's the cheap part, would rather have a solid body.

Oh if only you had told me that, say, 5 cars ago. LOL.

Alloy sump?

If it were closer, I'd be on it. Thankfully its not, I have enough projects right now. I like the smallmouths.

That TR3 don't look to bad.It is not to far from home for me. I think I will stop by and if he will work on the $$$ .It might be my project for the winter.

Same here. But I'm older and wiser than I was 30 years ago. However, I agree this is probably a worthwhile base for a restoration. If anyone wants to get serious about this car, I can check it out for them. I live and work nearby.

Seller says no alloy sump with the car. I just had to call. Car will be shipped to Europe if not sold on Cragslist. People in the UK will think this car is like new.

Hi Folks,

Kind of looks like mine!!

Is`nt that Wiper Motor on the wrong side? Could this have been a RH Drive car at some point in its life?

Looks dooable to me.... I'm in a lot worse shape. I bought mine for $350.00 15+ years ago and it's a flinstone mobile! Seems a bit pricey but... it's only $
