The Triumph TR4 was introduced in 1961 to follow its very successful predecessors, the TR2 and TR3. Code named 'Zest' during development, the body was given a more modern and updated appearance by Michelotti but its drivetrain and chassis remained the same using the well proven four-cylinder pushrod unit, albeit with an increased capacity to 2138cc. Handling was improved by a three-inch wider track and the steering was also updated to a more modern and precise rack and pinion system. Internally, the car gained wind-up windows and the new angular rear end allowed for a boot with a very reasonable luggage capacity for a sports car. Production was between 1961 and 1965 and over the years this model has become one of Triumph's most popular sports cars.

This UK-supplied TR4 is finished in the stunning colour combination of Midnight Blue with an Oxblood Red interior. Fresh from a recent full restoration, the car is ready for a top-down blast around the UK in perfect sixties style. A new hood, powder coated wire wheels, and brilliant chrome-work complete this fabulous looking classic.

The driving experience is said to be a great combination of Triumph's classic 4-pot engine, precise gear changes, communicative steering, and nimble handling, and the overdrive makes for very relaxed cruising. An ideal summer classic at a most affordable level, we welcome pre-sale inspections on this TR4 and prospective bidders should contact the office for further details.
