1966 Triumph TR4A IRS For Sale by Auction

For sale by auction on Saturday 25th November 2023 with Historics auctions.

Registration RAR 273D
Chassis Number GTC70057
Estimate £18000-£24000

A wonderful mix of British brawn and Italian style, the Michelotti-styled TR4 was powered by a torquey 2, 138cc four-cylinder twin-carb engine mated to an all-synchro four-speed box that could launch the car to 60mph in 10. 9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 105mph. Optional Laycock de Normanville electrically operated overdrive could now be selected for second and third gear as well as fourth, effectively providing the TR4 with a seven-speed close ratio gearbox. In 1965 the car gained a new chassis with more sophisticated independent rear suspension (in place of the old live axle) for more predictable handling and an improved ride, these models being known as the TR4A. By the time production ceased in mid-1967, some 28, 450 TR4As had been sold, the vast majority to the American market. First registered in Hertfordshire in June 1966, this UK market TR4A comes with a large history file extending back to the early 1980s. Between 1993 and 1999 it was treated to a body-off restoration by Revington TR Ltd of Somerset with many new panels fitted along with new bumpers and a full repaint in British Racing Green. It appears that it also had a substantial mechanical overhaul but as all the invoices only list part numbers,  it is hard to be sure exactly what was done. A new set of carpets, new inertia reel seatbelts and a new double duck hood were certainly fitted. A few photos show the restoration in progress and confirm that it was a chassis-up job. An invoice shows that the engine was rebuilt by Worcester Classic Cars in December 2020 with new pistons and liners and a rebuilt cylinder head and it has not covered many miles since. A new radiator, new rear springs and a Revotec cooling fan have also been fitted in recent years. We are informed this attractive TR4A drove well on a recent 40 mile test with the driver reporting that it went well with the overdrive working as it should.
