The final iteration of the TR3, the TR3A, appeared in 1957. Recognisable by its wider front grille, exterior door handles and lockable boot handle.

Built during the week of 19th September 1958, some 60 years prior to the current ownership in 2018 this attractive TR3A was originally supplied from the factory in Powder Blue with a Black interior and a White hood. Supplied new by Eastern Automobiles Limited in Essex '323 LVW' pleasingly still retains an Essex issued registration number. Attributed with factory fitted equipment that included a heater, windscreen washers, occasional rear seat and 55 x15 tyres, some might see those as 'essentials' for sportscar motoring in Britain. Currently, the paintwork is finished in a Light Blue, a similar shade to the original colour of Powder Blue. Both the hardtop (body colour) and soft top (Dark Brown) are present with the car. Following an extensive and complete body-off restoration, '323 LVW' benefitted from a brake and suspension overhaul, wheels refurbishment and new tyres. Inside, a complete retrim was carried out (in Dark Tan with complementing Light Blue piping), along with full weather equipment to protect your investment. A V5C and Heritage Certificate accompany, along with a collection of invoices.
