Triumph TR4A 1965 IRS
Incredibly original car, it is a time warp. Paint is the factory original finish throughout, only the rear right quarter and trunk lid have been repainted, I believe even the keys are on the original keyring. The Heritage certificate shows matching body, engine, and chassis numbers.
The TR appears rust free throughout, the chassis is solid and straight, original floor pans too are without corrosion and super straight, the matching number 4 cylinder motor starts instantly, no smoke, no undue noise. It shows excellent oil pressure and doesn’t overheat at all. I rebuilt the carburetors using a kit supplied by the TR specialists at Victoria British, I have also replaced the brake and clutch master cylinder, brake hoses, as well as the clutch cylinder hose. Although I am selling the TR for light restoration I have driven it to cars and coffee, around town, and each time it starts surprisingly easily and drives very well.
The gearbox shifts gears easily, it doesn’t grind or jump out of any gears, it brakes well and in a straight line. I believe the paint to be all original factory finish apart from the right rear quarter and the trunk lid. The underside is super clean, I can find no rust anywhere on the chassis nor the floors.
The trunk floor, footwells and floor bottoms are rock solid and straight, the outer body panels are all rust free too. All panels are straight apart from the corner of the right front fender which has at some stage been damaged but since been straightened, please see the pictures. The windows all wind up properly and the hood frame is in good shape, the soft top itself is old and could do with replacing, living in California I don’t need it! The windscreen has a crack in the center, dashboard is very nice, the carpets have gone and need replacement. This car offers a totally unmolested original TR, my intention was to leave it as is and drive it as it can only be original once, with todays fashion for original paint cars this one really is a talking point that you don’t mind parking anywhere! I believe that it is also eligible for many historic rallies and races, there is a roll bar fitted and I believe it may have a limited slip differential. I am selling my cars to fund a career in motor racing or else I’d keep this car forever, the title is clear and in my name, the license pates are mine and do not go with the car.The TR is sold as is where is, please have funds in place before bidding, payment must be received within 7 days, I can assist with overseas shipping...
