1962 TR4 CONVERTIBLE
The Triumph TR4 is an English sports car built between 1961 and 1965, with only 40,253 examples being produced over that period.
Powered by a inline-four cylinder engine, displacement was 2.1 litres that produced 105 brake horse power. Twin Zenith Stromberg carburettors supplied the fuel to the engine that produced a top speed of 165 kmph.
Transmission was a 4 speed synchromesh unit with optional overdrive. The TR4 was originally fitted with 15 x 4.5” disc wheels but there was an option to have 48-lace wire wheels.
Braking power is supplied by disc front and drum rear end.
Advanced features of the time included adjustable facia ventilation and a unique hard top that included an integral roll bar.
The TR4 experienced a number of racing successes in the USA, particularly at Sebring.
This is an absolutely superb example of the Triumph marque.
Having been treated to a full nut and bolt restoration, the quality and attention to detail is second to none.
Finished in faultless Signal Red, all chrome, badges, interior, dash, engine bay, boot and underbody are fully detailed and immaculate.
The engine is spirited, gear change notchy and aural feedback glorious.
Sitting on sparkling (optional) 48 wire wheels, this car is fitted with overdrive.
All receipts documenting the history of the car dating back to 1976 are on hand.
The car retains its original owner’s manual, tool bag, jack and lead hammer to remove the wheel knock offs. Two original banjo steering wheels go with the vehicle.
Featured in the 2012 Australian Classic Car Yearbook as one of the best. Has not deteriorated since then.
On South Australian club registration.
