Description

"Produced between 1961 and 1967, the TR4 combined a new, modern and aggressive body design by famed Italian stylist, Giovanni Michelotti with the basic chassis of the previous TR3A. The TR4 also improved passenger comfort with wind-up windows, 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. 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 extremely original 2138cc TR4 shows only two recorded owners in its 58 years. The current being the executor of the will of the first owner who purchased the car in the 1960s. Presenting well in the traditional and desirable colour combination of Racing Green and red trim, this Triumph shows a wonderful patina. We are informed that this Triumph starts first time and is a joy to drive. Offered to auction with a tonneau cover, an original handbook, previous MoT test certificates, various bills and receipts dating back to 1964 and a V5C registration document. This realistically priced quintessentially British sports car should generate significant interest both within the TR Register and wider classic car enthusiasts’ community."
