1959 Peerless GT


Looking for multiple resources for Peerless parts. Just bought an amazing 1959 here in the States. Car had been sitting in a garage for 53 years same owner. The car was sold by a US Airman in Lubbock TX in the 60's to a Lubbock family. Can't wait to get this restoration underway. Wanted to share what I found. Pics attached....need a starter if anybody has one for sale or knows the best place to get one thx

Hi Paul, welcome.

Nice car you have, i like the colour.

Starter shouldn't be too hard to source as it's from a Triumph TR3, as you probably already know.

Good luckwith the restoration, there's lots of info and knowledge here.

Erik

I have an original Bomb starter but it would probably be more cost effective to buy one in the States than shipping it to you. I'm sure you've got to be plenty of providers over there. Tbh, most replace the original with a Hi Torque one. Much more efficient in the long run unless you're stuck on originality.

And I think your car will be 1958 not'59. You're less than 50 cars in front of mine and mine if definitely a '58.

Hi Paul,

Please you took the advise and jumped on here. Your front seat backs look as if they have been reupholstered (as standard seats have two oval vents in the back) but the general look of the cars it doesn't appear to have wanted/needed them doing? 

Could you show us the badge on the centre of the dashboard? is it a local club?

Congrats Paul,

Looks like you got yourself a good one, I'm jealous as I still haven't found one yet.

Great find. There aren't many of them in the US. You might look into a company called Classic Car Performance in New York for a starter motor. They produce starters for most British cars. I recently had them make one for my Riley and was very pleased. Where are you located? I'm about 70% along with the restoration of a Phase Two - also LHD, on the Central Coast of California.

Paul,

That hole in the roof looks very familiar! Our #96 has the same thing. We are going to try to repair that on ours...

Warwick 872BLU was delivered with a Webasto folding sunroof. Factory invoice shows it was a $75 option.  Maybe your car came that way too?
