That's what we get for living the 'good life' out here in the PNW! I just located this (https://lansing.craigslist.org/cto/d/1963-triumph-tr4-parts-car/6395722408.html) and would buy, if it were within a day's drive. But having made the drive from the Midwest to PNW once, moving my son back, I won't do it again. Looks to be some decent sheet metal, and he says he has the rear fenders too!

Best of luck!

Kyle...Alert!

I think my wife may have hacked your account!

Gawd I hate having to deal with rational thought!!!

and to be clear, I am only looking to better my sheet metal; I want to make it 'pretty' this winter...

I thought of sending it to you before posting but didn't see enough value (in my opinion), to make the trip pay.

I only go as far as a days trip anymore for a parts car. I hire someone if its a decent car farther than 400 miles away.

My wife wants me to limit my collection, we have 7 vehicles now. All but 1 run and drive, no parts cars, but lots of parts. I'm always looking and have fire warned her of a couple pending cars that have fallen thru. I'm trying to find out info on a couple TR4's I've heard about but not heard back on. Kyle.

My primary objective is to clean my car up, but keeping in mind that it has/is/will always be a race car and will entertain its share of bumps and bruises. Secondly, I'd like to put together a street car, either a 4A or 250. However, that can wait for the timing to be right.

I continue to look for a nice Right Rear Fender for TR4...and will continue to thank the guy in Prior Lake, MN for selling the ones he "shook hands" with me. I would drive to Lansing for those fenders if they are nice...Riley

Ouch! At $3.50 per gallon we are now at $2,200 paying $0 for your time or wear and tear on your truck/trailer. Trident750 (http://www.triumphexp.com/phorum/read.php?5,1496413) was selling a 1963 complete car for $3,600 shipped.

$2,200 is too expensive for sheet metal for me but I guess that is what we have to pay to stay away from all that extreme weather and other baggage that comes with the Midwest and East Coast! I'll travel 1,000 miles, each way, but that's my artificial limit (until I see something else...).
