I have a disassembled 1960 TR3 that's been in my garage for over 50 years. I'm looking to get rid of it since I'm moving.

The frame is in good shape except for some rusting in the front wheel wells. The engine block has a crack at one of the holes
for the head bolt studs.

Transmission is a 4 speed with overdrive. I replaced the needle bearings for the overdrive planet gears and reset the end clearance
for the sun gear. I haven't assembled it onto the gearbox since I need to replace the tabbed washers for the bridge pieces for the
actuating pistons.

I don't know if this car is worth restoring or if it is just a "parts car".

The car is located in Williamstown NJ 08094.

If you are interested send me an email and I can send you lots of pictures and answer questions.

Hello Jim

Welcome to the forum.

I am too far away to be interested in the TR3 but I am sure someone on the forum will be.
You should also post it in the Triumph Classified section of the forum. The Roadster Factory has a Classified section on their site that could be a good place to advertise it.
