I have no association with this seller just wanted to pass it on, looks like some good stuff wish I was closer.

Sorry I guess the link does not take you to the site. It looks worthwhile to look up though Sheet metal, OD trans, engines, Silverstone wheels. Surrey Tops, and much more. Mostly TR3 TR4 TR6 parts. Looks like seller knows what parts are worth.

Small fortune there for sure. Never seen that many silverstone wheels in one place. At least five surrey tops. I'm glad he's not closer.

SURREY TOPS! The post is gone now. Please tell me the surrey tops were in bad shape and too much money.

I bet somebody bought the whole lot. Marv you are the first person I thought of when I saw the wheels.

When I looked at the ad, it made me realize that some people are more tolerant of their spouse's hobbies than others. I have a transmission on end with basil growing out the top of the bell housing, and I thought my wife was being a good sport. If I had that many car parts surrounding the patio table on the deck... I'd be single.

I have the front end of a rusting TR3 (inner fenders & skuttle) that my wife is becoming very tired of seeing in my yard so there is no way I'd be able to accumulate such a collection. BTW - the front end is free to a good home if someone wants to come get it in Connecticut before I send it to the junk man. PM me if you want pics.

Tell her it's yard art. There is a fellow in Phoenix that has this in the front yard:

Of course he also has several of the complete thing in the garage.

I didn't see the surrey tops but the supercharger for a 250 looked pretty awesome...~

Hello

Anyone bought anything from this guy? Looking at getting a starting handle from him if I can get a photo with a scale to check that it is correct for a TR3.
