The History
The Triumph TR4 was launched in 1961 (to change the old sister TR3), designed by Giovanni Michelotti the car bring a lot of new features such as the new 2.2 liter engine, with a synchronized gearbox and a new steering box.
Other new features were the side windows, internal vents and a innovative hard top (from which the Porsche Targa was inspired) it consists of a bolted rear window and a removable rigid central section, also available in the canvas version named "surrey top".
The dashboard was restyled too, with the top area covered of “vynide” and the main dials which was in front of the driver. The remain of the dials was positioned in the black center panel, below which there are the switches and the radio. The 3 spoke steering wheel was in bachelite and metal.
As optional the Triumph offered also the spoked wheels, meanwhile in the USA the car was sold with aluminium and magnesium alloy rims.
Historical note: three TR4As with independent suspensions came in the top three positions of their class, in the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1966.
In the early 1960s Ducati in Bologna signed an agreement with Triumph to start an Italian production of TR4, but the contract was not as successful as expected and Ducati simply imported Triumph’s car and spare parts. However, at least 20 Triumph TR4s (recognizable by the back logo) were produced by the Bolognese assembly line.
The TR4 was a great commercial success, from 1961 to 1965 as many as 40,253 were produced.

Our Triumph TR4
In very recent times the bodywork of the car has been totally restored, as well as the engine, with the disassemly, restoration or replacement of every component (starting from the naked metal through the signal red painting).
It’s really rare to find a work such perfect done on a Triumph TR4, with an high attention to detail; there is also a photo book documentation of the works done. The car has been painted in the original Signal Red color (Code 2859).
The engine has been totally restored, with some parts replaced and other fixed.
The interiors has been totally restored too, and the seats are now in very good condition, as well as the door panels and pavement.
Doors and hood are perfectly well-hinged and aligned: they closes easily and with a low pressure.
The dashboard is original and the dials are perfectly working (with the original 3 spoke steering wheel): it is white painted, with the top area covered in “vynide”, a particular historic detail of this model.
The canvas capote is in very good conditions, watertight.
Spoked wheels with new tyres.
Ultimately a small British with a retro charm, fun to drive thanks to its lively engine and for this reason always sought after by lovers of English spiders. The prices of a beautiful TR4 like this always remain quite stable.
