Frank,
I have commission number TS22019 LO. What do you think about this one?
And thank you very much indeed for taking the time and effort to do this service for everyone.
I have had the car 30+ years and got it from what I was told was the second owner, so I suspect engine and tranny are correct. It is a small mouth with non-syncro first gear but has overdrive, door handles and a few other bells and whistles.

Jim,
I spent countless vacation days on Vashon. We had family in the Kingsbury Beach area and
also in Cedarhurst, but I never remember seeing a TR3. I would have "chased it down" if
I had!!!
Anyway, your car, TS22019LO was built on 18 September 1957.

If your engine is original, it would be numbered at about TS222XXE (suffix "E" for Engine)
The number is stamped on the block on a boss just aft of the rear coil bracket.

Ray,
Your car, TS82346L was build in the last days of TR3 production.
Part of the Canley works was dedicated to TR4 assembly by then,
and apparently TR3 assembly ceased for a time.
I'm reasonably sure my info is correct in stating that
TS82346L was built on 07 July 1961.

Frank,

I am not sure I have asked you before but I would like confirmation that my 1960 TR3A TS81089L was built around September 1960.

Thanks in advance.

Joe

Joe,
You did ask me about TS81089 in late Feb, 2018
I mentioned then that my module only deals with build dates...No other info
.
Joel Rosen at VTR might have more data.

To repeat, TS81089 was built on 27 October 1960

TR3A production was slowing down in the late fall of 1960,
probably because the TR4 was gearing up for assembly.
There were less than 2500 TR3s built in the entire year after
yours. The last one (TS83572) was built on 01 October 1961.
