For Sale 57TR3 Small Mouth with OD Project. 12 yeqrs running. I'm not going to finish


Jedi Warrior
Country flag
12 year project I will never finish. All major frame and mechanical done. Painted in Signal Red. Fresh engine with 89MM liners, Wiseco pistons, new street cam, bearings, ground crank, all cylinder head work done. New rear main seal (still leaks) All this was done first, 12 years ago. I can't remember it all, I just know I spared no expense. I am a retired Chrysler technician and have been driving TRs since I was 16. I am 73. New 48 spoke wires, knock offs and hubs. Complete TRF leather interior in black with white piping, including carpet, jump seat, all door and rear panels (un installed) Macy's installation hardware. New fender beads, stone guards, etc. Tons of new parts. Too much to list. Signal Red in enamel to finish fender insides. Fresh gallon of Signal Red Lacquer to finish out side. Sorry, I can't stand the base /clear finishes on a 65 year old TR. Car has SCCA race history from the 70s. I have pictures. All sheet metal is rust free and needs to be hung and prepped for paint. I have thousands of hours in this, and thousands of dollars. I'm too old to finish. I just crashed my 2016 Triumph Bonneville T120. First bike accident since 1967. I'm beat up pretty badly. An accident in a TR3 wouldn't be much better. It's time to go. The only thing I still need is 57 Seat pans. Pretty hard to find. Ask John.... A good upholstery shop could probably fit the 57 covers to the available 3A pans. I have driven it a couple of miles. Wings flapping in the wind. OD works properly. One slow blocking ring, as I recall. Redline MT90, as per Randall will help within a few miles. It's going to take $14K. I'll send pictures, but only if you're a serious buyer.
