Triumph TR4a irs 1966 'Barn Find with a Difference' Great Car UK Registered for sale
1966 TRIUMPH TR4a irs.
Here we have a FANTASTIC ONE owner TR4a we came across this unique car during a visit to USA. We had purchased a similar car from an elderly gentleman and whilst in conversation he knew in his words "Of an old boy who had a TR4a that he'd owned from new" but he doubted he'd sell her as even though he gave up driving 10 years ago he paid a guy to look after her and take him for a spin every couple of weeks. He was still in love with her.
I managed to get a introduction to "Rooster" this was how he introduced himself. He agreed to show us his "baby" but refused point blank to sell her but promised if he did he'd offer her to me as he liked the idea of it returning to the UK were she was built. He said that if someone was prepared to go to the expense and trouble to send "Her Home" then she would obviously be well looked after.
All this happened in August 2013 I had forgotten about buying this car then just before Xmas i got a call from Rooster saying it was time to let his girl go. I negotiated over several days and finaly reached a deal on Xmas day . She arrived in uk on 12 Jan 2014 we had 2 other cars at the docks so we added this car to the container. They arrived at Felixstowe we went to collect the other cars on the transporter and intended to collect this one the next day. When I saw her at the shippers I had forgotten how good she was the body has got age marks and the odd sign of surface rust but when she started she sounded superb as Rooster had said she has only covered 57000 miles from NEW I took her for a spin down the road and she drove as one of the best non rebuilt TR. I have ever driven I made the decision to driver her the 270 miles home she performed perfectly and returned good MPG to boot.
We put her on the ramp and our technician checked her over she was excellent underneath with a good solid chassis he did a pre MOT on her she needed Front suspension bushes and a N/S sill we did the work and she flew through her MOT test The old girl is now UK registered on a 1966 UK registration (D) and has 12 months free tax.
The hood. onneau cover and interior are all in good condition. In essence this is a very good useable classic that can be used and enjoyed whilst you address the minimal defects that will return her to her former glory. I have shown photos taken on her journey north showing good oil pressure and a good turn of speed. This car has the potential to be worth a lot of money without having to do a major restoration this model is by far the best and they are appreciating rapidly. This is a rare opportunity to buy a unmolested TR4a and not a basket case.
She is located in Lancashire we will deliver nationwide at only £1 per mile and can arrange shipping worlwide.
