THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The compact and sporty Triumph roadsters embody a post war "joie de vivre." Specifically, the TR4A vehicle offered here combines comfort and performance with refined Italian flair. A step up from the earlier TRs, this TR4A demonstrates concourse level condition and is ready for immediate enjoyment.

The TR4A is a front engine rear wheel drive car built between 1965 and 1967. The TR4As used an independent rear suspension (IRS) instead of the live rear axle, improving its overall performance. Triumph's incorporation of award-winning designer Giovanni Michelotti's Italian modern styling enhanced the market appeal of the existing TR models so that it spoke to a sportier, younger buyer.

This TR4A, a California car, was the recipient of a comprehensive, no-expense-spared restoration via the world-renowned Kurt Tanner. The project included show-quality body and paint, new chrome, rubber, windshield, completely new and refurbished interior, soft top, walnut dash, tires, brakes, fuel system, stainless exhaust system, rebuilt suspension, clutch and much more. The eye-catching Signal Red coach work is accented with black trim which is factory correct for this car. The tasteful, authentic walnut veneered dashboard and sleek black steering wheel blends beauty with luxury. Options include the desirable 4-speed with overdrive gearbox and 60-spoke chrome wire wheels. The car's undercarriage is equally impressive and completely detailed to show level. This spectacular car has been driven less than 100 miles since its restoration was completed and has been lovingly cared for in a large temperature-controlled garage by the present long-term owner. The car was recently treated to a NOS wiper motor, crankshaft, a clutch slave cylinder replacement, and has undergone regular maintenance. This gorgeous car has been enjoyed and maintained to the highest of standards.

It is accompanied by a 5th chrome wheel, workshop manual, owner's handbook, jack with handle and a British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate. The Italian styling, coupled with a robust 4-cylinder engine, render the TR4A a guaranteed pleasure rush. A stunning sports car, it is ready for an exciting drive in the countryside and equally prepared for display at any noteworthy British Car Meet.
