What's the definition of "minimal rust"? Tom

ARGH why are these all out in the north west. I want a small mouth TR3, or even better, a TR2 up here in the north east that I can get my hands on =D

I paid more than that for my 57 and it is disassembled. I guess somebody needs to contact the seller and ask what "minimal rust" means. And true, La Grande is a bit out of the way. It is even a long haul for me at 5 hours one way on I84, and I'm already in Oregon :wink:

Looks like a pretty nice smallmouth on ebay right now in Syracuse ny.
Will be intereting to see how high it goes.

Yeah, it's in my watch list, though not something that I'm bidding on =)

There are a lot of things wrong on that car to be 1956, if you go by the vin#. I understand that it may have been sold in 1957. My guess it's a TR3A with a small mounth apron. I asked for information on the body tags but got none. All he said was thanks for the information. It does look like a nice car though.

For self serving reasons (I will someday sell mine), I like to see the cars go for the highest price possible. Agreed this is probably a TR3a since nothing in the photos or text looks or sounds like a 56 (57 title). The frame dirt bothers me. A total restoration 5 years ago ought to be less cruddy and rusty. All that aside if it runs well the price still isn't as high as a more original car would/should cost. IMO

Hi Folks,

That "Small Mouth" has a "TR3" VIN# but Door Handles that are`nt supposed to be there: Boot lid has a Turn Handle Lock (Wrong) & "Other Stuff" that shows this TR to be possibly put together from "Other Cars".

Pending the selling price; I guess Its an OK car to play with on some Back Country Roads.

My $.02:

La Grande is high and dry in Eastern Oregon. Could be pretty much "rust free"
