Lot 248 - 1963 Triumph TR4
|Odometer reading||53,322 miles|
|Estimate||£16,000 - £20,000|
Produced between 1961 and 1967, the 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 2138cc engine of the late-production TR3A continued while the 1991cc 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. Today, the four-cylinder TR's 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 example is presented in black with red interior including its original steering wheel which is rare. Originally exported to Kentucky, this left hand drive Triumph was repatriated to the UK and registered in 2017 and is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 16th October 2018. These Triumphs are much sought after and often muted as one of the prettiest of the TR range. With its lively four-cylinder engine and four-speed gearbox, these great British sports cars hustle along the country roads with verve and provide fun open top motoring.
