TR3 UOV713

Recommended Posts

Any previous owners still members or anybody know any previous history of the car ? Mike Ellis Tells me the car was owned by a register member up to circa 1985 then it appears to have gone 'off grid' resurfacing and re joining the fold when the LHC purchased him a couple of months ago.

I seem to recall a UOV xxx (can't remember the number, so

may not be the same one).

The one I remember was very original, won the Sebring trophy

the first year it was presented - owner then was John Cole.

 

LHC?

Here are some pictures of your TR3 as it was in 1973.

The first TR Register “Big Event” was organised to celebrate the twenty first anniversary of the Triumph 20TS prototype being displayed at the London Motor Show at Earl’s Court in 1952.

I took the pictures at the refuelling stop in Exeter on the very wet morning of 13th October 1973. This took place at Mumfords Garage (formerly Motor Macs) near the Paris Street roundabout in Western Way (the Inner Ring Road). The location is now the site of the Vue cinema (EX1 2DD)

The cars featured are as follows:

TR3A 690CTT – Viv Caust

TR3A 637JHU – Julian Stephens

TR3A 432JAF - Rodney Castle

TR3 UOV713 – John Cole

TR2 JHJ596 – Pete Grenyer

TR3A YDK688 – Not known.

I am aware that the first five of these TRs still exist and are in safe hands. I have no knowledge of YDK688.

Enjoy the nostalgia.
