1961 Triumph TR4

Description

The Triumph TR4 was introduced in 1961 to follow its very successful predecessors, the TR2 and TR3. Code named ‘Zest’ during development, the body was given a more modern and updated appearance by Michelotti but its drivetrain and chassis remained the same using the well proven 4 cylinder pushrod unit, however its capacity was increased from 1991cc to 2138cc. Handling was improved by a three inch wider track and steering was also updated to the more modern and precise rack and pinion system.

Internally the car gained wind up windows and the new angular rear end allowed for a boot with a very reasonable luggage capacity for a sports car. Another innovation was the option of an alloy hardtop with a removable roof panel that was five years ahead of Porsche’s famous 911 Targa. 40,235 cars were built between 1961 and 1965 and over the years this car has become one of Triumph’s most popular sports cars.

This nice 1961 Triumph TR4 has been thoroughly restored and is said to run just as well as it looks with uprated Weber carburetors and an excellent gearbox. A beautiful interior and excellent chrome and paint finish complete the overall package. We love the Italian styling and strong and simple engineering of the TR4, as such this would make a fine classic sports car for local journeys or longer driving events.
