The first step in the TR's transition from uncomplicated, rugged sports car to something altogether more refined, the TR4 had been introduced in 1961. Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti's new bodyshell brought the styling bang up to date, while completing numerous chassis changes beneath the skin. Rack-and-pinion steering widened front and rear track, and an all-synchromesh gearbox contributed to improved driveability, while wind-up windows were a big advance on the preceding TR3's primitive side screens. The standard engine was the 2,138cc four-cylinder overhead-valve unit first offered on the TR3A, and when equipped with the optional overdrive the TR4 was good for a top speed of almost 110mph, as was its successor, the TR4A.

Launched in 1964, the latter added independent rear suspension to the package, thus bringing the TR sports car into line with the rest of the Triumph range. Among mainstream British sports cars, only the Triumph Spitfire and Jaguar E-Type had independent rear suspension at this time.

Consisting of substantial cast-alloy trailing arms, coil springs, splined half shafts and lever-arm hydraulic dampers, the new independent rear end necessitated an entirely new chassis frame rather than merely a revision of the old one. Cars destined for the price-sensitive US market retained the cheaper live rear axle, which was carried in a modified version of the new chassis. To offset the inevitable weight increase associated with the more complex rear suspension, the 2,138cc received a new camshaft and a more efficient exhaust system which now produced 104bhp at 4,700rpm.

A beautiful finish in Wedgewood Blue coachwork with Black vinyl trim and Glacier White piping this outstanding TR is sitting on gleaming chrome wire wheels with two ear spinners and 4 matching Michelin period tyres. Built originally in left-hand drive form and delivered new to the United States in late 1966, it is factory fitted with a 'life' rear axle. When the car was repatriated back across the Atlantic, it underwent a photographic body off restoration with works being carried out in the Netherlands. Today, the TR stands gleaming and is a real credit to men who carried out these works. In addition, the car benefitted with some very tasteful touches which included twin Lucas spotlights, rear luggage rack, chrome wire wheels and fitted luggage to name a few.

Complete with tools, matching spare wheel this example is ready and waiting for its next custodian. We highly recommended a viewing.
