Lot 214 - 1967 Triumph TR4A
|Odometer reading||110,000 km|
|Estimate||£10,000 - £15,000|
Produced between 1961 and 1967, the Triumph 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 2,138cc engine of the late-production TR3A continued while the 1,991cc 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. Some 28,465 TR4A roadsters were produced between 1965 and August 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.
This TR4A was imported from North Carolina in the United States and presents extremely well with both the resplendent green paintwork and brightwork in very good order. The black leather upholstery is equally good due to an earlier restoration and indeed, a look underneath the car is enough to inspire confidence in the quality of this example and the previous workmanship. Currently awaiting the V5 registration document from the DVLA which is expected prior to the auction, the vendor explains that this is a lovely drive and is sure that it is a future classic.
