Description of 1960 Triumph Other

I have a 1960 Triumph TR3A for sale that has been stored in a garage here in Phoenix Arizona for the past 30+years. The car has no rusted out panels and is mostly complete but needing restoration. I believe it was was built in late 1959 and titled as a 1960. The car was put away in storage in the 1980's and was running when it was parked. I have the title issued from Arizona in 1969 that shows the same owner! The car still currently runs and drives but is obviously needing a full restoration before being a road worthy car again. It had new tires put on a couple years ago and also had the fuel tank flushed out and she fired right up. The car will start with a short bump of the starter button!The car is very solid and has no visible rust other than some surface type oxidation on the floorboards. Unfortunately - the car does not have the convertible top frame or the side curtains for the top - sorry. But it does have most of the seat frames. The car was owned and driven by a friends mother and was her pride and joy until she got to elderly to drive it anymore. It currently needs an interior kit and a paint job but the car has no rust or visual damage with the exception of some blemishes and some storage wear to the paint. The nice part about this car is that it has spent it's whole life in the dry desert and the body is free from rust as you find with most TR3's of this vintage. As most people know - fixing rust and to repair it correctly is a very expensive part of the restoration on these cars. This will be an extremely easy restoration for someone who likes to do the work themselves and being it is already a running driving car that takes some of the guess work out of it.. The car is located here in Gilbert Arizona and the clean clear title is in my possession. I am not looking for scammers or people to waste my time. If you are looking for a nice TR3 - please give me a call or email. I also can take whatever pictures are necessary as I just put some up here that I had on my camera. I am asking $12K for the car and feel that is a great value for someone to get into a classic Triumph TR3A that is a solid rust free car.
