I just got a 1960 TR3A that I want to restore to original colors. The BMIHT certificate says the exterior was "powder blue", interior trim was blue leather, and top was white. Question: does that mean that both the tonneau cover and the convertible top was white? Also, what color would the carpet have been? Is there someplace that gives the standard color combinations for TR3A's? Thanks for your help.
Hello and welcome to the TTN. I'm not a TR3 expert, but I would expect that the tonneau would have matched the top color. And this is just a guess, but I would expect that the carpets were either blue or black. But again, these are just educated guesses. Anyone else have the definitive answers?

To quote the page, "This page is devoted to that rare breed of TR - the Powder Blue Model. There may well be other rare colours but ... who is going to be the one to set up the Geranium Red page? Or who is going to admit to owning one??? "
"Joe Richards, Ohio USA owns this 1960 TR3A which was originally Powder Blue. Joe is the 2nd owner. Original Body Colour was Powder Blue, trimmed in blue leather, white hood and sidecurtains and white wall tires. The only other accessories that the factory fitted were an adjustable steering column and a hoodstick cover."
I think my job here is done. Let us know what you turn up with.
