While the TR4 improved upon the TR3, dramatic changes evolved with the innocuously named TR4 A. Created by the Italian auto designer, Michelotti, this design was a more modern sports car body that would fit the chassis and mechanical components of the TR3. The TR4 A was still powered by the 2,138cc pushrod operated overhead valve four-cylinder engine that had debuted in the final TR3 variant. An entirely new frame supported Triumph ĺ s independent rear suspension. An ingenious arrangement of cast aluminum semi-trailing arms with coil springs, it gave exceptional rear wheel camber control while providing excellent wheel travel, with softer springs that made for a better ride.

The 1966 Triumph TR4 A Convertible presented is a rust-free vehicle that has been restored by the previous owner. During the restoration, the vehicle was stripped to bare metal and re-painted in its original factory shade of red. The chrome is mostly original, however some brightwork on the Triumph was restored or replaced as needed. A new soft top was installed, as were a new set of wheels and tires.

In preparation for the auction, the talented specialists at Classic Showcase completed extensive mechanical work to the TR4 A. The engine was pulled from the bay, the cylinder head was overhauled, and the crank and flywheel were resurfaced. New bushings, a new timing chain, new piston rings, a new set of main, rod and cam bearings were installed. The oil pump was rebuilt, as were the carburetors. The transmission was fully serviced as well and fitted with a new clutch assembly. Ancillary systems such as the fuel delivery system, the suspension and the brakes were also completely serviced. Not just limited to mechanical attention, the seats were reupholstered and new panels were installed.

The TR4 A is the classic postwar Triumph sports car, combining excellent handling, interior comfort and stylish Michelotti design. It also has exemplary performance, a classic and rarely achieved combination that makes this car a standout among Triumphs.
