> I'm curious - how many small mouth TR3's are there on the list besides me?

.  Anyone got a clue as to the survival rate?


According to Piggott and others the first TR3 was built on Oct 7th, 1955
with a commission # of TS8709, the last was built Sept 17th, 1957 at
commission number TS22013.

Assuming no lapses in sequence that would result in a total of 13,304 built.
Of that number I have always heard there is about a 10% survival rate with
barely half of those still on the road world wide.  BTW, all TR3s are small
mouth.  The TR3A is the wide mouth.

A couple of years ago someone one this list compiled the names of side
screen owners on this list along with their car's commission number.  Can
that be repeated for I seem to have lost it.
