Triumph had a long and rich history of building sports cars, and following WWII the company was quick to introduce a new line of TR roadsters. These failed to achieve Triumph ’ s projected sales volume, but the British car company persevered and introduced a second generation of TR sports cars in 1954. Picking up what its predecessor was lacking, the 2-liter TR2 quickly established itself as a tough competitor in both the showroom and in road races and rallies. The TR2 evolved into the TR3, followed by the TR3A and TR3B, but by 1962 the bug-eye front end styling, cut-down doors and side curtains were outdated. Triumph sought out the famous Italian designer, Giovanni Michelotti, to pen a more up to date body for their existing chassis. The result was the thoroughly modern-looking TR4, featuring a wider body and track, roll-up windows, rack and pinion steering, better ventilation and a slightly larger, more powerful engine. In 1962, Bob Tullius won his first SCCA Class E Production championship driving a new Triumph TR4. Production of the TR4 ran from August 1961 to January 1965, with just over 40,000 examples built. Presented here is a 1964 Triumph TR4 Roadster that completed a nut and bolt restoration. Painted in its original black livery, the subtleties of the Giovanni Michelotti styling are fully enhanced. The new chrome, trim and 60- spoke Dayton wire wheels only accentuate the TR4 ’ s period styling. The factory red leather interior is completely restored and features matching red carpets. The refinished dash is highlighted with a period, wooden Moto-Lita steering wheel. A new black Stayfast canvas top was fitted for use in cooler weather. Added niceties include period bullet mirrors, a battery kill switch, car cover and Triumph floor mats. Under the hood, the Triumph ’ s robust four-cylinder engine is fully detailed and ready for show, but with a rebuilt four-speed manual transmission and the very desirable Laycock electric overdrive unit fitted, this TR4 is also ready to go!
