Description

GENERAL

This Triumph TR4 Surrey top was built in 1963 and was imported from the US into Europe in 1988. The current owner bought the car in 1992 and restored it through time. Many invoices of the work that was carried out are available.

Presented in very good condition, this car is the perfect summer companion for week-end trips or rallies. The current owner completely rebuilt the engine and fitted a new wiring harness.

EXTERIOR

The exterior of this car is in very good condition, with very presentable paintwork. 4 brand new wings were fitted as a part of the restoration process.
Finished in Signal Red over black, this example features a not so often seen surrey top with a blue tinted window. The owner said there is a soft top with the car but it’s still in his workshop. The soft top will also come with the car.
The car has a good looking luggage rack installed on the trunk lid.
Although not every chrome part is brand new, it is overall in nice condition and contrasts beautifully with the red paint.
The new chrome wire wheels finish off the appearance of this TR4. They are shodded with recent looking Vredestein tires.

INTERIOR

The interior has been retrimmed in black leather with matching carpets and door panels. All trimmings look very clean and fresh.
A three-spoke Moto Lita steering wheel is fitted. The wooden dashboard and black leather top of the dashboard look clean and are free of cracks.
Original switches, controls and Jaeger gauges seem to be in good condition.

ENGINE

The 2138 cc four-cylinder engine is paired to a four-speed manual transmission. The current owner rebuilt the engine a few years ago. Consequently, the engine starts on the first try and runs smoothly.

BODY

The underside of the body and chassis looks neat.

PAPER TRAIL

Documentation, many invoices and Belgian registration documents are included.
