I have a nos TR3 temp gauge and the other 3 small gauges are in used condition. Also have a used turn signal/horn button assembly. Pics available.
What are they worth? Looking to help fund my TR4a wakeup. The 4a has been sitting 10 years.

Well, probably more than I would pay.

A new "clone" sells for $120. They lookmpretty good but it is fairly easy to see the difference. Would not work for a concours show car. Yours will.

So, somewhere way above that. $200?

I bought a nice restored one a few years ago for 175. If yours still works I think that 200 number is pretty good.

Good info, Thanks.
It does register under hot water.

I sold one a few years ago on eBay for a bit more than $200 to a fellow in Italy. He promptly listed it on their eBay and doubled his money. I guess we were both happy.

I did include photos in the listing of the gauge reading with the sender in a pot of boiling water.

If it's truly NOS (New Old Stock), that is in the box, never installed, and
accurate, it's easily worth $300.00. I have that much invested in a junk one that I restore.
Initial cost for a core, re-charge the ether, repainted dial, new glass, re-chromed bezel, gaskets, etc &
at that I can't get more than $335.00.
Good thing it's hobby!

I almost listed the gauge on Ebay last night. I wanted to clean the other small gauges and list them at the same time. I listed some NOS TR6 parking lights. I have a used turn signal /horn button assembly to list also. I need to finish my MGA before starting on the TR4A.

Is that a red reflection on the glass or a rust stain?

Hey Kevin,
When are you heading south for a visit? I can probably have the new 4a on the road in a week. You can ride in a 4A like we did in the late 70s!

I think a 250 stripe would look cool on it!
