    My Father and I purchased this car in Feb 1996 from a couple who had 'Won' it in a competition at a local car dealership - that sound glamourous, but the car was in poor condition. The inner sills were paper thin at best, the brakes were partially seized, the bottoms of the front wings had been filled and a very cheap respray given to the lower half of the car. When we collected it, it had water on the floor up to the bottom of the doors. By the time I had driven it home - some 12 miles I was soaked from the knees down! We stripped and rebuilt the entire car - with a lot of work being down outside in the road! having now owned 'Connie' for the last 27 years, she is very much now part of the family!

    BRIEF HISTORY OF 1956 TR3 OFU 198 Purchased 1971 for £40 All wings bashed in, large holes in floors, generaly very scruffy. Engine seemed OK, in fact it was a factory reconditioned engine. (& still is ! see restoration below) Spent about 2 months repairing floors, replacing front wings with fibre glass, & painting (brushed on ICI coach enamel) MOT'd & on the road. Approx 1973 purchase rear end bodywork from a crashed TR3A (late) & rear axle. Cut off original rear bodywork and grafted on the later one, renewed inner & outer cills at this time. Fitted the newer (& stronger) rear axle. Front end collision results in new (fibre glass) front panel to be fitted. Over the years various gearbox changes took place ending up with a basic TR2 type non O/D. Brake servo (ex Cortina) added combined with "hard" brake linings to improve the drum brakes. Used as every day car up till circa 1978, when became Summer only car, & used Reliant Scimitar in winter. 1979 persueded to sell car to brother of freind - did so (for £500) on the basis that I had 1st refusal should he ever wish to re-sell. Car used by new owner (David Shillito) for around 7 years, then taken off the road, & stored in reasonably dry conditions. 2010 David got quotes for total restoration - figure much higher that he was prepared to pay, so car offered back to me (for £500 !) March 2011 took posession of the car once more, put in garage to decide what to do next (& how to pay for it) January 2013 decided on a plan - get a body shop to repair the bodywork, while I deal with the chassis, & all other mechanical / electrical aspects. Work Started April 2013, finished in September, in use since then. RESTORATION DETAILS Quotes for body restoration still very high, in the meantime, found a Californian imported TR3 in pieces on eBay. After requesting more photos, decided to bid, & won it. The body panels on this car were in a much better state than my original, & this was a cost efective way of sourcing the panels that would be needed. Prior to stripping OFU 198, I needed to test the engine - which had not run for some 26 years. It turned over OK, so with spark plugs out, I cranked it over on the starter until oil pressure came up. I then tested the compression - two pots were pretty good, one was a bit down, & the other was a lot down. Added some oil into the bores, this improved the compressions further. I had by this time rebuilt the fuel pump, so that was working, I connected the pump to a fuel container under the car, & primed the carbs. After sorting out the float chambers which flooded at first, I then checked the ignition - cleaned the points, re-timed it - all seemed to be working. Cleaned the plugs, re-inserted, filled the rad with water, & cranked it over. It started straight away - clouds of smoke out of the exhaust, & oil breather, but it was running - quite well. After running for around 5 minutes all the smoke cleared, & I was able to get a rather nice tickover. Oil pressure was good, no leaks, no nasty rattles - engine was OK. This meant that I would not have to strip the engine prior to re-fitting it. For the bodywork I used a local firm - John Andon Classic Cars. They often have TR's in their workshop for anything ranging from total rebuilds, to a quick respray (John owns several TR's himself & is in our local TR Register group) I stripped both the bodies down to component parts, then the best parts of both bodies were taken to the body shop for repair, & assembly together with a number of new panels eg. floors, boot floor, & wing repair panels. The remaining repairs were carried out by cutting out rust, & grafting in new metal as required. Meanwhile I set to work on the chassis - removing engine, gearbox, steering axle etc stripping it down totaly. The bare chassis was taken to the body shop for blasting, & painting, then returned to me. All the removed items were cleaned, refurbished, & painted. I had purchased a "Parts Cleaner" (tank with pumped solvent spray), & a sand blast cabinet. both of these were well worth the outlay, as they saved so much time. When the chassis was returned, I set about re-fitting it using most of the original items, but renewing others eg brakes parts, & pipes. Calipers (from the slightly later USA car) reconditioned, springs & shockers seemed OK, so were re-used, new suspension bushes all round, with new trunnions, & 1 new vertical link. I was offered a Triumph 2000 overdrive gearbox by my neighbour, who had been storing it for years (for no good reason) This fitted the engine no problem, but I had to change the clutch to match the gear box - a GT6 clutch did the trick. The overdrive was found to be not working, so I got this re-built, & uprated to TR spec by a local specialist (Hardy Engineering) The only other problem was that the speedo drive from the overdrive unit ran at a differant speed to a TR unit, so my original speedo would have read very slow. I solved this one by grafting the innards from a Triumph 2.5PI Mk2 speedo into the original TR speedo casing. This gave the required 840 turns per mile.(standard TR ratio is 1180 TPM) It fitted very easily, despite being some 20 years newer. When the chassis was completely built up, & now rolling, it was shipped back to the body shop, where the body was fitted to it. Once all the panels were trial fitted, door gaps adjusted etc, the car plus panels were painted. I could not find a "correct" colour for the car which I liked very much, so in the end went for an Austin colour "Teal Blue" This being pretty close to the ICI paint colour I had used in the 70's The panels were then fitted, & the car was returned to me. I then fitted all remaining items to the body - brakes, clutch, engine linkages. Re covered all the trim panels, & seats, fitted new carpets, seat belts, wiring loom. Fitted new hood, tonneau, & re-fitted the original sidescreens Mods from standard include electric cooling fan, alternator, narrow fan belt, electronic ignition, hazard warning function, halogen headlights, hidden cigar type power socket for satnav etc, extractor exhaust manifold, & TR4A inlet manifold with HS6 carbs, spin on oil filter, & a dipping rear view mirror. Most of the new parts (& some 2nd hand parts) were purchased from The TR Shop in Chiswick The viable parts left over from the two cars, i.e. engine, 2 X gearbox's, axle, & rolling left hand drive chassis were sold on to re-coup some of the restoration costs Modifications include Rack & pinion steering, roll over bar, front & rear anti roll bars.
