Way to go. Nice to see a TR3 once in a while.Wondered how you got the motor in,,,by moving the firewall back two inches,,,very tricky. How much work was that? Still working on my TR3,,2.3 litre Turbo Thunderbird. Very slow going . Motor and tranny installed and removed,,doing body work. Congratulations again

Oh goody!!! Another TR3. They really are a hoot to drive. I have the engine out of mine getting the block freshened up and hope to have it back running by summer time. You really are going to wish you had a larger gas tank because you can't go very far with your foot in it LOL LOL. Joe, a really nice looking, not over the top TR3. Congrats.....
