The TR2 was the first true post-war Triumph sports car. It was superseded in 1955 by the TR3 and finally the TR4, which signaled the end of the era of open side curtain cars and the beginnings of a new era of a Triumph with not just performance and style, but with all the comforts of a luxury car. A completely new body featured roll-up windows, and while the purists howled, everyone else rejoiced. Chassis and drivetrain were little changed, with the most important updates being a synchromesh first gear, rack-and-pinion steering and an engine with slightly more power.
Offered here is an absolutely beautifully restored 1962 Triumph TR4. The body is extremely straight with paint and brightwork that is in really nice condition. The top and interior are restored correctly as the car would have left the factory in 1962. The undercarriage is also very clean showing no signs of ever having any rust or rust repair. Mechanically the engine runs extremely well and the transmission shifts as it should. The engine compartment is also extremly clean and is as nice as the outside of the car. Recently treated to a full mechanical service including carburetor cleaning, brake service and fluid and spark plug change. With this car’s beautiful restoration, wood dashboard, roll up windows and classic British sports car style, any collector or someone looking for a reliable, practical and stylish sports car would be proud to own this car.
