Vehicle Description

A little history of how my wife and I came to owning this TR4.

Back when my wife was a teenager, she did some modeling work. One of her gigs in New York was to do a photo shoot for Triumph.  As you might guess, it was for a 1962 TR4. Fast forward to 2005. One day I was on “E-Bay” and came across a listing for a 1962 TR4 and my wife said, why don’t you bid on it? Well, after some back and forth and a successful trip Grand Rapids Michigan to kick the tires, the car was ours.

We had the car shipped to Texas, and we’ve enjoyed driving it around town. The car has been very reliable. Triumph has always made a vehicle that if maintained, can provide fun even into extended life such as we’ve seen with this TR4.

A picture of the newspaper ad that ran back in 1962 with my wife is shown above.
