Peter & Sue Clarke - QLD
TR3A - 1960 model TS 80257

Previous TR - TR2 1954 model TS 3728 O (sold to John Johnson VIC)

Peter and Sue have sold their TR2 and recently restored this TR3A previously owned by Bill Dobson in NSW. Hopefully we will get some information on the restoration.



This early long-door TR2 was originally restored by a father and son team from Narrabeen. Evidently the restoration was not carried out to todays high standards.
Shirley Pitman (dec. Life Member) purchased the car in 1979 and experienced many troubles with it. Ray Potbury purchased the car from her and it proved to have a badly damaged Vanguard motor. It is mostly original and was put back into use. Rego 089 EZT.
2002 update: Vehicle unregistered and not in use.
2005 update - Ray Potbury (now in Brisbane) sold the car to Peter Clarke (QLD) in November 2005

2014 update
Now fitted with a TR4A spec motor, cam, manifolds, flywheel, carbs etc
Front brake upgrade with Toyota 4 Pot calipers and brake booster.
Vertical links with 3 deg castor and rack and pinion steering.
Aluminium radiator and electric fan, halogen headlights, relays and alternator. Mazda MX5 seats and 14" steering wheel.
Sold to John Johnson VIC
