|Odometer reading||76,185 miles|
|Estimate||£14,500 - £17,500|
|Result||Sold - £15,680|
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 TR4 was one of the many exported to the US and was repatriated to the UK in 2016. Clearly she has benefitted from time and investment as this example presents in good order and is in the lovely colour combination of red with black interior. Still in left hand drive guise, this Triumph sits proudly on Minilite wheels. We are advised she drives well with no known faults. Supplied with a V5C registration document, this stylish Triumph TR4 is a sure way to enjoy the summer months ahead.
