Ken Le Mesurier
TR3 - 1957 model TS 20084
Ken purchased this car from Julie Ow in Perth WA. Hopefully we will receive some more information about the restoration as it looks like a daunting task!
Ken says: "...the car came in from Singapore after having spent 6 years in a shipping container. I started working on her in late October 2016. The body is nearly finished but I still have a bit to do on the boot. I am still unsure what colour yet, either carnelian red or two tone black and cream." edited 27/717
New photos added at the bottom:
Well - all the bits have arrived.
Good grief - what have I bought!
Lots of bits
This is the chassis ....
And this seems to be the "recovered" chassis ... how did he do it?
As a late TR3 the rear apron looks correct with the pressings for the separate turning lights.
Some clue about a variety of previous colours.
New material - 26 July 2017
This is a magnificent effort when you look back at the chassis above.
Panel fit looking good.
This is the right way to restore the body. Nicely engineered rotisserie.
