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, as was its successor, the TR4A. Launched in 1964, the latter added independent rear suspension to the package and continued in production until 1967. 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 genuine right-hand drive UK model equipped with the desirable manual/overdrive transmission, this particular TR4A was the subject of a restoration carried out between 1992 and 1995 and is described by the vendor as in beautiful condition. The chassis has recently been repaired and Waxolyed; the engine is said to run well and display good oil pressure; the body is sound; the interior tidy; and the electrics and transmission work correctly. Finished in Old English White with red interior, the car comes complete with Surrey hardtop and is offered with old-style logbook, sundry restoration invoices, MoT/tax to May 2011 and Swansea V5.
