Striking 1961 Triumph TR3A for sale

Here’s a different kind of “Bugeye.” TR3s are a blast, and this one is a perfect driver that just about any British car lover will thoroughly enjoy. We just got the car from the 40 year owner, who traded it for the Bugeye “Luigi.” He was ready for a change. But this car will blow Luigi away. Tr3s are quick! Indicated mileage is 56,032

TS73540L is a superb driver. The paint shines beautifully. It’s about a 40 year old paint job, and you would never know it because the car looks quite good. Originally Yellow, the car was repainted red just before the last owner took possession in 1978.

We have all the original ownership history, including the original title From June of 1961 when one Linda Hoyt of Darien, CT purchased the car new from International Motors of White Plains, NY. She then sold the car to Joe Mauro of Stamford, CT on September, 30 1972. He sold it on August 1, 1975 to John Anzalone of Southbury, CT, who sold it to Robert Milford of Woodbury, CT on 2/12/77, who then sold it to Tom, the most recent owner, in 1978. Five owners since new.

It’s easy to see why Tom kept this car for more than 40 years. It’s a perfect sports car, rugged, loud, windy and very sexy. These cars are like tractors, they just seem bulletproof. And this one’s a pisser to drive.

The top is nice, no tonneau, worn side curtains. The engine is strong, with great oil pressure. Disk brakes up front. Four speed non-overdrive transmission. Solid body. No visible damage anywhere, nice straight lines. Spare tire well is quite clean. The car needs very little and you can drive it anywhere. Paint is older but no crazing anywhere, it was a good job. This is a car you don’t have to worry about. The interior shows a little wear, like a nice but slightly worn pair of blue jeans. Yet the overall appearance will stun everyone, no matter where you go. It looks that great.

Call or email if you want to make this great sportscar your own!

It’s a very sharp restored car that you can drive anywhere. The new chrome exhaust system looks great and roars! The car has also been fit with an upgraded high output starter and spin on oil filter kit, nice additions! We have completely gone through the car, put in a new clutch, replaced the driver’s seat foam to restore the leather seat bottom and fully serviced the brakes.
The body is excellent. The door gaps are all great and this car is ready to drive! The rockers are nicely restored and so are the outriggers and trunk floor. The floor pans are solid. The restoration was done about 20 years ago and the car still looks fresh.

The car has been driven so the underside is not as tidy as you’d find on a car that has been trailered to shows… but this is a car you can drive, without fear that a passing rain shower will ruin your entire weekend, and require hours of underside cleaning.

She starts right up and wants to roll. A great tonneau, windows and top are included (see photo album). The trunk is well-stocked with knock off wire wheel hammer and a spare tube underneath the spare tire. The blue pouch holds a car cover. Take this car on a trip this weekend!

1961 Classic Austin Mini Estate Countryman (Woody) For Sale

A ’64 Mini Cooper was the car I owned just before I bought my first Bugeye way back in the 70s, so I have a particular affection for early cars like like the Mini you see here. This one is registered as a 1961 Mini and it has early door hinges, latches and windows, but a more modern interior and dashboard, complete with comfortable headrest equipped seats and a nice wooden dashboard. It’s perfectly nice and wonderful to drive and enjoy as it is now, or, if you are a purist, this car could be converted back to the original interior.

New Price! This car is now available for $16,595- A lot of fun for the money!

The car is fit with a 998 cc engine with a four synchro later gearbox. The engine and gearbox are presumed to be from a later car. It runs great and shifts smoothly.

Drum brakes are fit all around and they work wonderfully, the car stops straight and true. Nice 165/70×10 Yokahama tires are fit to ten inch minilights for a great performance ride.

In September of last year, we performed a major service to this car and made it into a great fun driver. We replaced shocks, ball joints, wheel cylinders, drums and shoes and a host of smaller issues, all with the eye to make the car easy to use and ready to go for the former owner, who used the car sporadically and recently decided to simply sell it to us.


You can now jump in this car and drive anywhere. It starts up easily, runs well and the brakes work great!

If you like these woody wagons, this one will provide exceptional summer fun! Call if you would like to take this one home!

PS: What is the difference between a Traveller and a Countryman?

Answer: Very simply a Morris Mini estate is a Traveller and an Austin Mini estate is a Countryman. Some people wrongly think that one model had the wood and the other didn’t, but both the Morris Mini Traveller and the Austin Mini Countryman were available both as a Woody and as an all steel version.

We sold this sweet 356 to Phil in Florida early in 2016. Now he’s ready to trade for something new, and has asked us to list the car here. The car is currently located in Florida, where Phil has made it even better with cosmetic and mechanical improvements. If you are interested, please contact us for pricing and more information at 203-561-6929.

Here’s a wonderful Porsche full of Bugeye personality. This very well-restored 1963 Porsche 356B is elegant and sophisticated, a stylish gentleman compared to a rugged and toss-able nimble Sprite. These sold for about $4,200 when new compared to the Bugeye’s $1,795 new price, so of course, everything is quite different. The interior is more luxurious, the car is quieter and simply more elegant while retaining great sports car fun, racing heritage and service simplicity. The 356 is full of personality and lovable curves, just like a Bugeye and that’s why I like it so much. And the car is tons of fun to drive and admire. Everyone needs one of each.
