1962 Triumph TR3B. I changed the look a bit. Resprayed the factory hardtop black to match body color. Installed a fresh set of Michelin XZX tires. When the tires were off, I sprayed the factory wires satin black. Also fitted is a set of restored, original side curtains in black. All of the original factory weather equipment that came with the car, ie: soft top, tonneau, hood stick cover, and side curtains, are safely stored as I rarely remove the hardtop.
