PHOTOS OF THE WEEK—Ralph Terry’s1959 TR3A restoration

 

Ralph Terry from Las Vegas, sent us some photos of his 1959 TR3A restoration. Ralph tells us that, "I purchased the car on EBay. Car came from NY and was rusty in the usual places but complete. Started on one area at the time until the car was completely apart. Then the bodywork was started, 1st floors then quarters. Rear facia and boot too rusted to save so replaced with new. I took my time and all bodywork was done in a few months. Had car painted inside out and started on the mechanical! Rebuilt all brakes. Clutch system, water pump, radiator,rebuilt SUs, stainless exhaust, complete wiring harness and all electrical components. Installed all new seat frames and interior in red leather. Car drives well but as every TR3 owner knows it a work in progress and never really finished! My restoration could not have been completed without you guys!” Ralph is going to fit a new convertible top he purchased from us and some side curtains next.
