1963 Triumph TR4
The TR series Triumphs stand as iconic British sports cars that are well known and loved by enthusiasts all over the world. It started back in 1952 when the Triumph 20TS, a prototype sports car which later became known as the TR1, was shown at the London Motor Show. Reactions were mixed, however, Triumph thought they were on to a good thing and the prototype evolved into the TR2 that was subsequently shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 1953. Triumph built over 8,500 of these 1991cc 4 cylinder sports cars from 1953 – 1955 and the rest they say was history. The model evolved into the TR3 (produced from 1955 – 1962), the TR4 (built from 1961 – 1965), the TR4A (built from 1965 – 1967), the TR5 (built from 1967 – 1968) and ultimately the TR6 (1969 – 1976). Subsequent TR models were interesting cars but it’s fair to say the evolution of the TR2 finished at the TR6.
With TR5 prices sky rocketing, enthusiasts are looking for alternatives and the TR4 fits that bill nicely. Offering a more sophisticated package than the TR3, the TR4 is a very usable, attractive and relatively practical sports car.
Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale one of most desirable of the TR4 models. This particular example features the optional surrey top and overdrive. The BMC Heritage Trust has confirmed that this particular car is an Australian delivered, factory RHD example that is fully ‘matching numbers’.
Whilst an older restoration, this TR4 still remains a stunning example in excellent condition. It presents and drives beautifully.
