1966 Triumph TR4A
Older restoration; huge history file; an attractive and well-sorted car driven to the sale
This 1966 non-IRS TR4 was originally delivered to the US and comes with a BMIHT Dating Certificate. As is often the case, its life in the States has little or no history, although its Certificate of Title shows it was owned by a gent in Baltimore in 1990, just prior to its repatriation back to the UK. It was first registered in this country in 1991.
A huge fill of restoration bills totals more than £20,000 of spend between its arrival and 2016 when it came into the hands of the vendor. It changed hands a few times along the way, being featured in the March 2000 TRaction magazine (copy not included) just prior to it changing hands in 2001. There are some photos on file of its inital restoration and engine rebuild. It moved to a new owner in 2006 who was to keep it for the next 10 years.
Not long after its arrival, the car was converted to RHD, with continued care and maintence ever since. More recent bills, in its current ownership include new carpets and a high power starter in 2017, a brake overhaul and new clutch master cylinder in 2018 and a rolling road tune in 2019.
It has been regularly MOTd, it's current test running until October 2022 which shows four minor advisories, one for a small oil leak from the rear axle and three tyre references.
Driven some 30+miles to the sale, it has been in regular use, but a look at the recent MOT history shows that it has covered fewer miles each year than the vendor had intended hence its inclusion in the sale.
This is a well-sorted, attractive TR4A which is in very presentable condition. A most usable car, it looks attractively estimated and is ready to be enjoyed.
