Earlier this week I got an email from Jose Bartute from Florida who has a couple of Triumph cars that he is restoring. I will have more on these cars in the upcoming days. Jose also sent me some pictures of a 1959 Triumph TR3 that he restored in the past. Jose does almost all of his own work. As you can see from the pictures shown below, Jose does great work.
A Rally-Styled Triumph TR3
Jose fitted this Triumph TR3 with a roof light which was a common feature of many rally cars of that era. Jose no longer has this car, as he sold it a couple of years ago. This is one reason why Jose is currently working on another Triumph.
An Interesting Color Combination
In the last few days I had reason to take a look through some early issues of Canada Track & Traffic magazine looking for an article. While doing that I noticed the advertisement shown below for a Triumph TR3 in the September 1959 issue.

The Triumph TR3 is a wonderful sports car and the car that Jose Bartute restored is a great example of a TR3.
