A more sophisticated version of the TR-2. The 2 lacked things like door handles on the inside. The usual method of entry/exit was to hop over the door.
My first boss in the USAF, Maj Kolman, rebuilt old cars. He had a TR-2, MG-TD (he rebuilt it from the frame up and I helped) He had two Avantis including one with a supercharger. He taught me a lot about fixing the TR and helped me pull the wet sleeves and go from 57 mm pistons to 63 mm and put in a 3/4 cam, all the same afternoon. He also taught me that most engine peripherals on the British Leyland products of the day, starters, generators, etc. were actually off of John Deere tractors so it was cheaper to go buy a generator from the John Deere dealer in Valdosta, GA than buy it from the BL parts store in Atlanta. Gawd, I loved that little car but I always want a Healy 3000 or a Sunbeam Tiger, sigh, alas not to be.
