Not very often does someone keep a car for 50 years. This incredible 1964 Triumph TR-4 was bought new at University Triumph WA in June of 1964.
It was adored and lovingly cared for more than 50 years by William Weiss until he sadly died in late 2014. During that half a century of loving ownership William put only 68. 00 original miles on the car. Other than driving to and from shipping trucks ALL of the original 68. 00 miles have been put on this car by William. As you would expect. This TR-4 was Garage kept and meticulously maintained.
William's wife struggled with what to do with the car and decided to put it up for sale. She realized that William would have wanted it to be lovingly owned by a new a family who would take care of it and appreciate it.
She sold the car to a local dealer (Brad Hallock) who recognized how special this car truly was in February 2015. Blacksmith Garage purchased the car from him in September 2015 to adorn our showroom since then. It is now time to find it a good home and tell its great story in accordance with William's wishes.
The car comes with amazing documentation and maintenance records since new as well as a letter from the previous owner's wife certifying the cars original miles.
Though obviously loved this TR-4 was definitely driven by William. The car was driven on family trips and to work on good days. William's wife confirmed that the car was never raced although during the first 6 years of its life. William did attend various SCCA races as a spectator where he displayed the car. He proudly made record of this on a metal display in the trunk.
The car came from the factory in the very rare Black over Black leather interior combination. Please see the attached Triumph Heritage certificate. William did give the car a high quality repaint some point in its life. Otherwise this car is COMPLETELY original and looks amazing.
The body is very straight and shows no signs of damage. Doors. hood. fenders and trunk fit wonderfully. The glass is original and the chrome and bright work is in amazing shape for their age.
The interior is a real time capsule. The leather seats show no rips or tears and look great. The wood dash is original and in excellent condition. The steering wheel is crack free. The door cards. carpet and trunk area are in outstanding shape as well. The cars gauges work as they should. the radio turns on but does not play. The soft top was replaced in 1974.
The 2138 cc motor runs. starts every time and runs like a swiss watch. The engine bay is clean and tidy and it is clear that it has run this way since new. The transmission shifts smoothly and the car is a pleasure to drive in town and at highway speeds. Braking is excellent and the car has nearly new Michelin tires and spare. The original wire wheels look great and are well balanced. The car comes with its original owner's manual. original tools. keys and wire wheel spare.
This car is an incredible find and a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of very few meticulously maintained original. ONE OWNER TR-4's in the world today.Condition body: Excellent paint: Excellent Interior: Excellent Engine: Excellent Transmission: Excellent Tires: 90%+ Tread
