This has got to be one of the best TR4 IRS to go under the hammer in the UK or anywhere. The history file has receipts for £46,319.44p. Spent on her between 11/09 to 10/12. She has wire wheels and overdrive. The car was dismantled, the chassis was sand blasted and powder coated, then reassembled. The result is stunning. Finished in grey with cream leather trim.
Estimate to follow.
“The Triumph TR4A was built between 1965 and 1968 by the Triumph Motor Company in the United Kingdom. The TR4A was an evolution of the TR4, updated with a new chassis. It was hoped the new, but more complex independent rear suspension would address the buying public’s desire for more comfortable riding sports cars. This version has an “IRS” badge on the rear. It has been estimated that 75 percent of TR4A were built with IRS. In 1965 the TR4A IRS sold in the UK for approximately £968, with wire wheels being another £36, overdrive £51, heater £13 and seat belts £4each; it sold for just under $2500 in the US.”
