    I can just see dealers advertising that one as a "survivor"

    Keith what did you see that was useable? I was looking for something that seemed salvageable, and was surprised to see someone had bid $600. It certainly has been abused. Cheers, Mike

    I want the fuel line on the carbs. I'm trying to get a few of them so I can make a small batch of them for resale. I just need the fittings, I have the braided hose and ferrules. It was such a pain finding 1 for my car that I thought I would reproduce a few for others. They are available from Moss but the fittings are not as original.

    The upholstery in the back seat area looks way too good compared to the rest of the car.

    I'll buy the oil filler cap from the valve cover. New TRs sold in the USA had that kind of filler cap, but cars sold in Canada had a cap without the indents for the three fingers. Don't know why they would do that but in concours shows in USA (TRA & VTR), I have lost points because the oil filler cap on my 1958 TR3A which I bought brand new in May, 1958 "does not have the CORRCT filler cap" as per the judges at TRA and the US judging standards which they have written.
