1964 Triumph TR4ADVERTISED PRICE: SOLDMILEAGE:19885
COLOR:British Racing Green
Dealer's Remarks:The Michelotti-styled Triumph TR4 built on the success of the TR3 with masculine good looks and respectable performance. It also added the comfort of roll-up windows and the enhanced drivability of a fully synchronized gearbox. The TR4 was successful in competition and featured many advanced features for its time including rack-and-pinion steering and front disk brakes. Unlike some other small roadsters of the 1960s, the TR4 has plenty of power to feel safe merging in traffic and overtaking other cars on country roads. Unfortunately rust protection was not what it is today, and many TR4s have rusted away over the years -- but not this one. It is hard enough to find a TR4 in any condition, and even harder to find a nice, unmolested, rust-free example like this one.
This Triumph is well sorted and a great driver. It's rust free with only one repaint to a nice standard in desirable British racing green; good panel gaps all the way around. The car has enjoyed the same owner since 1983, who purchased it in Arizona and kept it garaged ever since -- we doubt this car has been driven in the rain in at least 30 years.
Under the hood, the original big 4-cylinder fed by well-tuned dual Stromberg sidedraft carburetors makes good power and has a great engine note. The suspension and gearbox are both nice and tight, and with a recent tune-up this car is ready for the road. Quirky? Yes. British? To a fault. Awesome to drive? Definitely. We get waves, comments and "thumbs ups" every time we take it out for a spin.
This car has beautiful newer upholstery and carpet and a nice wood dash housing original Jaeger gauges. The top and tonneau cover are in excellent condition, and the original chrome is presentable. At this price point, you're not going to win at Pebble Beach -- but this one is certainly nice enough to take to your local car show or cruise in.
Give us a call if you want to see this rare piece of British sports car history.
