The Triumph TR4 is a sports car produced by the Triumph Motor Company from 1961 to 1965. As the successor to the TR3A, the car was based on the chassis and drivetrain of the previous TR sports cars, but with a modern body designed by Michelotti.
In spite of its modern styling, a total of only 40,253 cars were built during its 5-year production run.
This particular TR4 is an immaculate 1963 example with a four-speed all-synchromesh gearbox and overdrive. An older restoration from about 10 years now, the car presents beautifully sitting on knock-on wire wheels with Continental tyres. It has a new mohair pack away hood and comes with a full tonneau cover. The chassis is as good as the day it left the factory and the engine bay gleams. We particularly like the original steering wheel and dashboard as many of these were lost by their replacement with after-market retrofitted accessories. With these details retained it has that all-important correct look and feel of a period car and drives superbly with a distinctive exhaust note that will put a big smile on your face as you cruise down the country lanes. It certainly gets lots of attention! In the substantial history file that comes with this car there is even the original sales brochure.
We also think these cars are going to massively increase in value, exponentially so in fact as evidenced by the significant rises in the market prices of both TR4’s and TR6’s in recent months. Costing roughly the same in period as an Austin Healey 3000 of which a good example will cost you around £60,000 today, the TR4 will set you back half of that, at around £30,000 for a pristine example such as this car at current prices and we believe in a relatively short time this car will soon catch up with the likes of the big Healey’s so it has greater investment potential than many other sixties sports cars and there is a growing demand for this particular marque so expect its value to skyrocket!
