Simon describes the restoration as follows:
"The car is a 1960 TR3A Model, Commission number TS 75097 and I purchased it in Sydney from Greg Tailby on the 2nd of August 1995, in an unregistered state. It had last been registered in Victoria up until October 1983. The car's previous owners had included Ken Copeland and Brian Smith.
The car was re-registered in New South Wales in October 1995 and driven in a rough but regular basis until it went through a complete restoration in 2001. This included a 'Full body off' restoration by Mike Larkman and included repairs to floor pans and sills, new inner guards fabricated, chassis sandblasted and painted black, new bonnet and boot hinges, hardware rechromed, new upholstery ( leather ), new carpets and trim, new sidescreens and fittings, new tonneau. The car was repainted in 2 pack in the Colour of Signal Red. ( Larkman Red )
