Footnotes

  • First step in the TR's transition from uncomplicated, rugged sports car to something altogether more refined, the TR4 was introduced in 1961. Giovanni Michelotti's new bodyshell brought the styling bang up to date while beneath the skin there numerous chassis changes. Rack-and-pinion steering, widened front and rear track, and an all-synchromesh gearbox contributed to improved driveability, while wind-up windows were a big advance on the preceding TR3's primitive side screens. The standard engine was the 2,138cc four-cylinder overhead-valve unit first offered on the TR3A, and when equipped with the optional overdrive the TR4 was good for a top speed of almost 110mph. Today, the four-cylinder TRs 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.
    A desirable overdrive-equipped model, this particular TR4 is offered for restoration. We are advised that the chassis was cleaned and repainted some years ago and that the steering, brakes and suspension are all correct. The hood frame is present (minus its canvas covering) but the bumper bars are missing. The vendor describes the condition of the body, paintwork and interior as 'poor', though the car is reported to start and drive. Sold strictly as viewed, the vehicle comes with its original old-style green logbook. A hardtop is included in the sale also.
