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 very nice, original, right hand drive 1964 Triumph TR4 with overdrive has been very well maintained by all of its previous owners. The last owner purchased this car in 2016 and went right through the cars mechanics in 2017 to prepare it for tours and rallies, which he did covering only 6,000 miles in five years. At the end of 2021 he had the car painted in its original colour red. The interior is black piped in white and features the original white dashboard and passenger grab handle. This TR4 is supplied with a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in December 2022 along with a history file containing photocopies of previous registration documents supplied by DVLA, old MoT certificates going back to 1993 and a large number of parts invoices starting 2017. The current owner informs us that it runs and drives very well. The quality of this still very original yet fastidiously presented example should generate significant interest both within the TR Register and wider classic car enthusiasts’ community.
