The POWDER BLUE CLUB
Peter Edmond's car - Christchurch, New Zealand
1959 TR3A
TS 63135 - O

Peter Edmonds describes his car as follows:

According to the BMIHT Certificate, she came off the production line on 1 December 1959 as an original RHD car.
On the 14th December 1959 she was despatched to Standard Triumph (NZ) Ltd., Wellington New Zealand.
Specs:
* Powder Blue with Black Vynide interior
* Black hardtop (which I have never fitted)
* Adjustable steering column
* Heater
All numbers match - Engine no. is TS63423-E. The car still has the original key fob supplied by the factory.

I swapped a wedge of bank notes for TS 63135-O on 18th July 1992 and I have , to date (March 2013), completed 23,000 virtually trouble free miles in it. And I have no intention of ever parting with it - perhaps when I am 90 and have to be lowered int the drivers seat with a hoist!
