Description for Triumph TR3 1959

I bought this car in Denver in 1998, and drove it to Oregon. In 2000 I began a restoration that I have not finished. I have moved to Philadelphia and do not wish to take the car. The asking price (which excludes the car's value) is less than the cost of Machine work on the head, crank, and block, frame work, new parts, and professionally rebuilt and bench tested TR6 overdrive transmission that come with the car: $2,400, $1,050, $6,000, and $3,700 respectively, for a total of $12,100 The cost of the parts is historic cost and excludes shipping, which means they would cost you more than $6,000. New parts include, wiring loom, all new suspension except springs and rear shocks, right and left inner and outer sills, complete floors and door skins, and parts needed to rebuild the engine; that has had all necessary machine work done by Bearing Service Co. in Portland, and the block has been boiled, blasted, flushed, and painted ready for reassembly. The head has new valves and seats, and the rocker shaft was rebuilt.
What I consider to be a low estimate of the car's value is approximately $3,000, which includes all fenders, 2 bonnets, trunk, doors, a hard top, 2 re chromed bumpers, extra carburetors, 5 wire wheels, 5 steel wheels, original manual, original tool kit, etc.
As the images show, the car is currently in pieces.The body is in two pieces, which is a common restoration technique when the floors and sills are badly rusted; this makes the body easier to store and work on. I have a bolt in jig which was manufactured inside the car before it was split in two which will ensure correct alignment when reassembling.
The body of the car has rust in the usual TR3 places. Feel free to ask me what those are if you do not know.
As stated above, I have moved out of state. The car is in Yacolt Washington, and my agent, my nephew, will be handling the transfer of physical custody once the sale is complete to my satisfaction as discussed in the selling terms section.
I am unsure what the actual mileage is.
