But it's hard to say, from this angle, if this is a TR-3, or a TR-3A. It could be a TR-2. The grille on the 3A was full width of the front fascia.
Yes, Dad's was a 58 TR3A (full width grille, all upgrades) and while it wasn't the highest tech of cars - that's what the reliable British cars WERE, simple. Probably why Lotus uses Toyota engines now, they've gone full circle.
