For sale by auction on Saturday 12 March 2016 with Historics at Brooklands. Brooklands Motor Racing Circuit. Weybridge. Surrey. Call 01753 639170
Produced between 1961 and 1967. the Triumph TR4 combined a new. br/>modern and aggressive body design by famed Italian stylist. br/>Giovanni Michelotti. with the basic chassis of the previous TR3A.
The TR4 also improved passenger comfort with wind-up windows. br/>face-level ventilation and an optional hardtop. The 2138cc engine
of the late-production TR3A continued while the 1991cc engine was
also made available to buyers who wanted to participate in
two-litre racing. When equipped with the optional overdrive. the
TR4 was good for a top speed of almost 110mph. The TR4A debuted in
1965 and introduced an all-new independent rear suspension system
(IRS). which provided exceptional rear-wheel camber control with
excellent wheel travel while softer springs improved the ride
quality. At the Sebring 12 Hours in 1966. ample proof of the
validity of the IRS was provided when three IRS-equipped TR4As
achieved a remarkable 1-2-3 class victory. Today. the
four-cylinder TR's are among the easiest of post-war classic sports
cars to own and maintain being supported by a multitude of
component suppliers and other specialists.

This TR4A has been owned by the vendor for the last 26 years.
After purchasing the car. the vendor left the car in storage and
embarked on a restoration project. As a result. this is one of the
best TR4's we have ever seen. The engine and the rear axle were
removed and totally rebuilt; the gearbox was changed to the more
desirable overdrive unit. The body was removed and sent away for
specialist repair and painting whilst the mechanical work was
carried out. the interior trim has also been refurbished and the
seats trimmed in high quality leather. The swage line chrome strips
have not been fitted although they are supplied; the vendor is very
reluctant to see anyone drill holes in his cherished car! The
result of such substantial time and investment is a magnificent
Triumph TR4A and one that would be worthy of being shown at any
club meeting or show.
