Giovanni Michelotti was one of the foremost designers of the time and his artistry shows with the TR4A. The addition of chrome accents and the natural flow from the subtle bulge of the headlights all the way to the rear end is beautifully proportioned. The TR4A had power to match as well; the 2.2 litre engine was good for 110mph and when equipped from 1965 onwards with independent rear suspension (IRS), provided exceptional rear-wheel camber control with excellent wheel travel while softer springs thus vastly improving the ride quality. At the Sebring 12 Hours in 1966, ample proof of the validity of the IRS was provided when three IRS-equipped TR4As achieved a remarkable 1-2-3 class victory.  

This TR4A was manufactured on 4th May 1966 and distributed to H.A. Browett & Co. Ltd in Leicester, and was then registered on 17th May 1966 and presents in the delightful colour combination of Signal Red with black interior. Sitting proudly on wire wheels this has clearly been a very well cared for vehicle and comes with a superb history folder. The Heritage Certificate verifies it to be a matching numbers example and confirms NAB 595D to have independent rear suspension, overdrive, occasional rear seat, heater and a hard (Surrey) top, together with a Surrey soft top. Described by the vendor as driving with no known faults this Triumph is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 19th September 2024. This is a very good example of a highly desirable TR4A IRS. Consigned by Stewart Banks.
