Herman - lovely and only 50 109 miles on the clock. What did you pay for it ? and which motor is in it?
Looks like the Mk3 with the 1300cc motor.
Absolutely lovely - and for that price.
Lets me think about past times....................................
Herman, Wragtag Pragtag!!!!!! (waar's Nico nou???) Ons sien uit na foto-verslag en vordering soos jy die takie aanpak!!! (natuurlik wanneer jou huidige werksprojek afgehandel is, seker?!!)
Baie mooi Herman , geniet die werk terwyl jy kan, my werk is klaar bene wil nie meer.
Herman I used to admire them as a youngster - could never afford to have one at the time.
WOW at R30k you have bought a bargain. Enjoy restoring it I'm sure you will be posting more photos as you go go along.
There was 1970 was the last yer they built the M3 it then changed to the Mk4 with the engine power, although still the 1300, slightly reduced so I think you got the better one.
There can't be too many of those in SA. There are many websites for spares should you need anything. Good luck with the project.
Herman - great car! Brings back great memories!
I had the TR2 in 1966 - twin Weber carbs - 0 to very fast in very little time!
Went like a "Bat out of Hell!"
I was busy re- carpeting it, when a mate wanted a spin. I had both the seats out. So I put the drivers seat in only - no windscreen as I was also busy getting it ready to respray - Gert sat on the back - boot - with his legs inside. I also had the hood off.
Started up - first gear got to about 60 miles per hour - top of the road T junction - pressed brakes - zippo! Hit clutch - swung the steering wheel full lock, grabed the hand brake- released then droped the clutch, & did a full 160 degree - hit the accellerator! Gert landed about 20 meters away head over T**t, but very lucky not to break anything.TR's could sit on the road - nothing could faze them!
These TR's were amazingly fast. Decided to get rid of it as soon as I put it back on the road -
GREAT CAR! Mine was green - dubbed "The Green Monster!" Two of my other mates each had TR 3s - theirs were red. We created havoc in Witpoortjie with these TR's back then! 120MPH in these tjhings was nothing back then!
Herman, jalousy makes me nasty, hoop dit flop
Trek net jou been, maggies dis mooi.
Baie netjies. Dis nou 'n lekker projek.
Lank gestaan. Sterkte met die projek en dink aan die vreugde wanneer dit klaar is.
Ook lus vir so 'n projekkie om 'n VW kombi te ombou vir Kruger naweek wegbreke. Het eenvoudig nie die plek in die erf nie.
Sterkte Herman. Die karretjie kan net mooi lyk as jy met hom klaar is. Ek wat gereeld in die buiteland is weet presie wat jy bedoel met die duur wissel koerse.
