Ready for a British-made time capsule? This 1965 Triumph TR4 race car hasn't been touched since it's last race in the 1980s. The floor boards all seem to be original and rust free. Even the battery box seems perfect. There is some minor surface rust on the frame, that can be wire brushed and painted to be like new again.

Other than a few dings and dents on the fenders, presumably from contact while racing, the sheet metal is all quite straight and there is no damage that I could see underneath, to the frame, or to the inner panels.

Want a good starting point for a vintage racing project? The eBay Motors auction ends today.

Yup, hated to see this one go, but I can't store any more cars.

Are you insane? Did you seriously sell that for just $5000?

I did. You can't win them all or keep them all. But god has alrady paid me back and landed two more TR3s (one a Group 44 car) in my lap for way less than that. Don't cry for me. I will be okay.
