  1. Good comments above, engine and gearbox were rebuilt in 2000 and its only done about 1000 miles since, overdrive just rebuilt, brakes and suspension regularly serviced. My point is should I keep spending money on upkeep of mechanicals without refreshing the body?
  2. Thanks for the comments, the question is how long to 'maintain' it before it becomes a rolling full restoration?
  3. I'm after some advice and interested in members thoughts- I have a 1959 TR3a which I inherited from my late Father. It runs and drives well, original RDH British car, chassis is solid and original and from what I can see the body is solid and unrestored. It appears to have the original floor pans, boot floor etc with no evidence of welding or past repairs. It has been stored since around 2003 with only occasional use and was heavily waxoiled which seems to have preserved it well. Exterior bodywork is showing signs of age- occasional rattle can touch ups at bottom of wings but metal is solid underneath. My question is should I invest in a respray (which I fear will escalate into a body-off restoration) or just drive the car as-is? From what I can see the values of these are static, I dont have there time to do the work myself but do have a good local mechanic who does good quality work. Any advice?
  4. Would be great to trace my late Father's TR3, he owned this car in the early 1960s, I believe it is still on the road, I have lots of photos I can share of it in action.
