1963 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 hard top 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 bright and beautiful example was brought in from the dry state of California and treated to numerous mechanical upgrades. For example the engine was uprated with a fast-road camshaft, and with the various other improvements we have a quick and easy to handle sports car. Finished in Signal Red and with alloy Mini-lite wheels on each corner, this is a well-prepared classic car with a huge amount of capability.
