A matching-numbers example, this TR3A comes with BMIHT certificate showing that it was built in left-hand drive configuration for the North American market and finished originally in black with red leather interior. It was delivered equipped with the desirable options of a heater and the sought after manual/overdrive transmission, both of which it retains. The car was imported from the USA to Belgium in 2010 and has had only one owner since then. Its California Certificate of Title and the shipping invoice from Long Beach, USA to Antwerp are available.

Cosmetically restored recently, the car also benefits from an engine rebuild (undertaken in 2011) which included a new crankshaft, piston rings, bearings, clutch, etc, while the cylinder head was overhauled with new valve springs and valve guides. The car has been completely repainted in light yellow and the rubbers have been renewed also. The black vinyl seats are said to be in 'as new' condition - likewise the matching vinyl soft-top - while the tonneau cover and side screens are new.

Driven only infrequently since the restoration's completion, the car is said to be in great condition with hardly any trace of use. Chrome is in very good condition and the engine bay very clean. Registered in 2011 by the last owner, this recently refurbished Triumph TR3A comes with Belgian registration papers, sundry maintenance invoices, original manual, factory brochure and some period magazines featuring the model.

For Motor Cars and Motorcycles a 15% Buyer's Premium is payable on the first £50,000 of the final Hammer Price of each Lot, and 12% on any amount by which the Hammer Price exceeds £50,000. VAT at the standard rate is payable on the Premium by all Buyers, unless otherwise stated.

Some lots may be subject to VAT on the Hammer Price. These lots will be clearly marked with the relevant symbol printed beside the lot number in the catalogue.
