David Orchard (VIC) TR3B and TR2

TR3B:1963 model - Commission # TCF359 L
TR2: 1954 model
(ex Geoff Kelly car)

Which one will I take today?
David says "trophies are for the Road class on the 3B at last year’s concours and the little one on the 2 is my first effort on the trackĀ  - a third place in the Sa class at Winton Festival of speed in August.

TR3B details:

This car was imported from California in July 2000.
The Sales advert said:
"1963 Triumph TR3B (STC63 TCF359L) in the same family since sold new in 1963. Local Bay area California car. Very original condition including a majority of the paint finish and interior. 72,000 miles from new. Beautiful rust free body with all its original panels from new. The car runs and drives superbly. Includes original side curtains and aftermarket hardtop."

After arrival the car was driven for 4 months. It then had a major rebuild. The body was rust-free but covered in dents. It has been converted to RHD & rack & pinion steering.
2004 update - rebuild complete.
