1959 Triumph TR3

We bought this car from a fellow who had the car stored away in his garage for the last 32 years! The car is a restoration project, but being tucked away from the elements for so long means that the body is remarkably rust free. There is no rust that I can see, apart from a couple small patches that were put on the floors. We prepped the engine for starting, and have run it out of the float bowls. The engine runs great with good oil pressure, and good compression. The car is also fitted with an overdrive transmission. I am guessing that the car may have had some race history in its past life as there are a few interesting modifications. There is a panhard bar fitted to the rear axle, the front inner fenders are alloy, an oversized fuel tank has been fitted, a rack and pinion steering conversion has been fitted, and an oversize radiator is also present. TR3 projects are getting really hard to find, this one has a really good body and overdrive and is reasonably priced at $9,600  (stock #765)

1961 Triumph TR3

There isn’t a whole lot to say about this car - if you are looking for a superb TR3A this is about as nice as you will find. The car is an American car that we completed a full restoration on. The body was in great shape with only some very minor rust repair needed, and no body damage apart from some small little dings. The paint was redone in a high end base/clear, and the color is Triumph signal red. Every piece of trim on the car apart from the windshield frame (which is very nice) is new, as are all the badges seals and any other items attached to the car. The car is equipped with a badge bar which has a pair of chrome Lucas 576 driving lamps mounted, the headlamps on the car are a pair of Lucas tri-bar PL headlamps. The engine is rebuilt, and the gearbox has been upgraded with a full synchro overdrive gearbox that is fitted with the correct TR3 shifter so everything looks correct. Of course new generator, regulator, water pump, radiator, clutch, hoses etc, etc. were also fitted to the powertrain. Brakes and suspension are all fully rebuilt or new as well. New wire wheel hubs were fitted on all four corners, as were the new sixty spoke chrome wire wheels, chrome knockoffs, and new tires. A new wiring harness was fitted, the speedo, tachometer, and fuel gauge were rebuilt, and most of the lamp assemblies and switches/controls on the car were replaced with new items. The interior is all new and correct with items supplied by Moss Motors, including the leather seats, carpeting, panel kit, top, windshield and new side curtains. This is a beautiful car that would be hard to duplicate for the price. $35,200 Cdn. (stock #600)

1964 Triumph TR4

We brought this TR4 back from LosAngeles, California where it had been in storage for many years, and have subsequently done a bunch of work to it to make it a nice TR4. We did a minor rebuild on the engine doing new rings, bearings, oil pump, valve guides and a valve grind to make it a strong running engine. We also did new coolant hoses, heater valve, rad duct, generator and regulator, fuel pump, coil, minor carb rebuild, and a new complete stainless-steel exhaust system. Both transmission and rear end were in good shape so we only had to install new seals in both units. All brakes and hydraulics were also replaced with new clutch and brake master cylinders, wheel cylinders, all rubber hoses, slave cylinder, and new brake pads and shoes. The suspension was also all redone with a new front end rebuild kit, shocks, ball joints, steering rack boots, and tie rod ends. We also added a set of recently redone sixty spoke wire wheels with nearly new tires. Being a southern California car meant that the body was in great condition without the rust issues that plague most vintage British cars, however the paint does have flaws and is not perfect but it is certainly presentable. Being a 50 year old plus car in California meant that the interior was in rough shape so we replaced pretty much all of it. We installed a new Moss seat kit, Moss interior panel kit, carpet kit, a new Robbins top, door seals, and new vintage style seatbelts. The dash area was also freshened up with a refinished dashboard, new padded dash pad components, new dash knob set, a rebuilt speedometer and tachometer, choke speedo and tach cables, and leather shift knob. This is a very nice driving and looking TR4 that is ready to use. If you don't like rust, here is your car. $19,800 (stock #715)

1966 Triumph TR4

This is a dry TR4A IRS that we brought back from Idaho and did a comprehensive restoration on. We disassembled the car and sent it out to be painted as a bare shell. The exterior is finished in signal red and looks great with almost all the chrome being new as are most of the lamps, badges and other brightwork on the car. All body rubbers, seals and gaskets were also replaced when the car was re-assembled. The engine was completely rebuilt with new bearings, oil pump, 87mm piston & liner kit, cam & tappets, timing chain, valves, guides, hoses, radiator, carb rebuild, fuel pump, water pump, mounts and all the other little bits that go in to a engine rebuild. The overdrive gearbox was also rebuilt, as were the rear hub assemblies, the differential was in good shape so it only needed new seals and mounts, and 6 new Hardy Spicer U-joints were fitted when re-assembling things. The exhaust is a new Falcon brand stainless steel system and it sounds great. The suspension was also rebuilt with new bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, tube shock conversion kit, rack boots, and new rear springs. The brakes and clutch are also all fresh with new pads, shoes, brake master cylinder, wheel cylinders, hoses, and hard lines. A new clutch was fitted as well as new clutch master cylinder and slave. The car runs and drives great, and everything works as it is supposed to. The car was also fitted with new sixty spoke chrome wire wheels, new splined hubs, new chrome knockoffs, and new tires. The interior is all new Moss Motors components in a honey tan color, with new leather seats, new panel kit and new carpets. The padded dash components are all new as is the dashboard, knobs, windshield, and the speedo and tach were also send out for rebuilding as part of the restoration. The wiring harness is new as are most of the electrical components and switches, and all electrical systems work as they should. The top is a new Robbins top special ordered to match the interior. There is a ton of little parts that also go in to a restoration that I have forgotten as well as some of the larger items. If you are looking for a very nice TR4A this car is spectacular and could not be duplicated or replaced for the price. $33,300. (stock #702)

1966 Triumph TR4A

We found this car in sunny southern California where it had been stored in someone’s backyard for way too many years. Make no mistake this car will need a full and comprehensive restoration, but it will be relatively straightforward and the TR4A IRS cars are becoming quite valuable. Despite the sun faded paint and few little dings the body is in remarkably good shape, and doesn’t show any signs of collision damage. For those of you that know TR4's, look at the rear fender seams - perfect with no rust. Due to prolonged outside storage the floorboards had some rust, so we replaced both floors with correct British Motor Heritage floor pans. The engine will need a full rebuild, but they are a relatively cheap simple engines to rebuild. The car appears to be complete with no items of significance missing. Priced at $7,500. (stock #764)

1969 Triumph TR6

This is an extremely early TR6 (one of the first 100 built) and is one of the oldest known surviving cars. The car has been in storage for many years with only 30,000 miles showing on the odometer, which are believed to be original, and is an original Jasmine yellow car with black interior. The car came off the road in 1976 and being off the road for so many years has saved the body as it has no signs of rust on the body or substructure. As expected, the interior will need redoing, but it is all still original as is the top with the reflective strips. The engine will need a complete rebuild as it no longer turns over, but items that would typically be changed out like the original bumblebee coolant hoses are still intact – this is a very original car. The only obvious non-original item on the car is the oversized 2” SU carbs, but there is an original set of strombergs with the car as well. All of the rare parts that are unique to the early 1969 TR6’s are present and accounted for and it has its original wire wheels and tires ! This is a very rare and valuable car when restored and is one that we had planned on re-doing ourselves, but there are too many cars to do and not enough hours in the day. This car deserves a full and proper restoration, but it will be a straightforward one. The car is straight and clean with beautiful panel fit. This is a car that cannot be easily replaced. Priced at $8,800. (stock #726)

1970 Triumph TR6

This is one of the good ones. This car came to us from the dry hills above Sacramento California. The body is nice with no signs of rust anywhere, but the Jasmine paint does have several touched up chips and scratches as well as some little dings here and there. The paint is presentable, but not perfect. The interior has new carpets, and we just fitted a new Robbins top, and new sun visors, the seats and the rest of the interior are in decent but not perfect condition, much like the paint - it is presentable but not perfect. The trunk has a new trunk liner panel kit, trunk seal and new carpet. The engine is strong with good oil pressure and compression, and the big plus is that it is a factory overdrive car. We did a tune up, replaced the coolant hoses, did some brake and suspension work, and the tires are nearly new. This car is ready for the road. Early rust-free overdrive TR6's are few and far between now. This is a great car for someone who can be satisfied with a good but not perfect looking TR6, or someone who wants a really good example to upgrade over time. $15,800 (stock #777)
