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 lovely UK supplied, right hand drive, 1963 Triumph TR4 with overdrive and Surrey top was the subject to a ‘body off’ ground up restoration a number of years ago. During the restoration they managed to retain certain original features including the white dashboard and the passenger grab handle. The current owner has informed us that it drives very well, with good oil pressure and a working overdrive unit. Looking resplendent in Masons Black with black leather seats from a Mazda MX5 and chrome wire wheels, this Triumph TR4 is supplied with a V5C registration document and an MoT test certificate which expires in May 2023. This realistically priced, quintessentially British sports car should generate significant interest both within the TR Register and wider classic car enthusiasts’ community.
