For Sale: 1965 Triumph TR4 in Collierville, Tennessee

$37,900  

Vehicle Description

The Triumph Motor Company developed the TR4 from 1961 to 1965 as the successor to the TR3. With a modern body designed by Michelotti, the TR4 did away with cutaway doors to allow for roll-up windows and added a more spacious trunk. It is actually pretty rare compared to some of the newer iterations, with only 40,253 cars built during its five-year run, but it doesn't mean it wasn't a success or fun to drive.

This 1965 Triumph TR4 offered by Art & Speed is a gorgeous representation of British engineering. This little roadster is ready to be enjoyed after receiving a comprehensive restoration in the seemingly not-to-distant past. Circling the exterior, we find the Cactus Green (Creme) finish in excellent condition with a straight body and crisp lines. The bumper chrome and stainless trim show virtually no signs of aging. The wire wheels are in great shape, with only one showing some minor surface rust. The chassis and undercarriage were refinished as part of the restoration and present well.

The interior was part of the restoration and still appears in very good condition, although it does show some light creasing of the seats from use. It is an accurate restoration with a matte-finish wood dash with a rare factory radio, the correct Triumph instruments, and the original shifter. Even the original banjo-style steering wheel is in excellent condition. The vinyl top is taut and fits well, and the frame disappears behind the backseat when not in use, while the top itself goes in the trunk where you also find the spare tire and factory grease gun.

Under the forward-opening bonnet lies the 2,138cc inline-four cylinder engine sporting two Stromberg carbs. The engine bay is neat, tidy, and detailed with the rare A.C air cleaners, a chrome valve cover, and factory-correct blue wrapped wiring harness. Some important upgrades are noticeable to the trained eye, such as the electric fan, helper fuel pump, and a stainless-steel exhaust system. These upgrades will help with longevity and provide a sweeter soundtrack. Although the little inline-four only pumps out 105 horsepower, it is plenty to get this mighty-mite down the road and keep a smile planted on the driver's face.

This '65 Triumph TR4 has been enjoyed and maintained in superb condition since its completion. It is still good enough to win on the show circuit, yet not so perfect that you won't be afraid to take it on cruises or rallies. It is ready for the next owner who wants to delight in driving one of the most popular and beloved sports cars from the British '60s era. Stop by the showroom at Art & Speed today to view this little powerhouse!
