Never officially called the TR3A by Standard-Triumph, the chassis numbers for the car that became commonly known as the Triumph TR3A, range from TS22014 (1957) to TS82346 (1962) with some omissions in and deviations from the numerical order.

At chassis TS60000 there were alterations made to the cars which affected the interior trim of the car therefore we will need to know whether your TR3A is pre or post TS60000.
