The interior is simply wonderful.

The factory original enamelled dashboard is in beautiful condition as is the original multi spoke steering wheel. All switchgear is original and correct as are all the gauges and clocks which give healthy readings. A high quality replacement carpet set has been fitted throughout. The immaculate boot area is carpeted in the matching pile and below the boot floor houses the spare wire wheel, jack and wheel brace.
The elegant lines of the Giovanni Michelotti design are instantly recognisable this beautiful example is finished in its original colour of Signal Red (code 32) which boasts a beautiful uniform deep shine finish, completely blemish free which is testament to how well this car was prepared and painted 21 years ago.

This delightful TR4 was bought in from the USA West Coast by a gentleman from Leicester in 1995. Sadly he passed away whilst the car was just about to be restored and converted to RHD. The car was then purchased by Mr Arthur Bedford of Crediton ,Devon who has confirmed he completely striped it back to the chassis and completed a full nut and bolt restoration. Some panels were replaced during the restoration using genuine BMC parts hence the fantastic fit and arrow straight lines of the car. Being a West Coast Dry State car it was in fantastic solid original order and treated to a full bare metal respray, converted to RHD using all the original clocks and gauges, and the interior fully restored using the original factory seats, door cards, window winders etc. Mr Bedford sold the car in 2014 and it has been with the current owner since this time. Only 2435 documented miles have been covered since its restoration way back in 1997 some 21 years ago. The history file contains 17 past MOT's dating back to the original of 13th May 1997 when the car was registered for the UK roads, many receipts and parts invoices, the original Triumph TR4 handbook and original sales brochure... lovely
