Dave,
When you say in need of complete restoration do you mean a solid car or something that needs more love than that? I've accumulated several cars from a 62 TR4 thru 73 TR6 and a few TR4as in between and they all need total restoration. Some have simple welding needs such as floor pans, boot floors, rockers, wing repair, etc. and some need that along with the usual frame repair. All need paint, interiors and trim along with suspension work, engine work, etc. Another great source and possibly the best is Marvin Gruber in Florence, AL...he has just about any project you might be interested in.
Good luck, Rut

Rut , thanks for the information. I am looking for a tr3 that needs a great deal of work as I can handle most of the work. I want to get into a car at a reasonable price considering the work needed . I would prefer that situation as I can then spread the cost out over a couple of years and that is best for me. Hope that helps and if you have or know of that sort of a project I would appreciate your input . Thanks, David

David,
Wyatts TR3 looks like a good candidate and I saw one on Craigslist Chicago that might work.
