1966 Triumph TR4A
The Triumph TR4A is a sports car built by the Triumph Motor Company at its Coventry factory in the United Kingdom between 1965 and 1967. The TR4A was an evolution of the Giovanni Michelotti styled TR4. The car had been favorably received for its overall performance and many amenities but criticized for its harsh ride. The TR4's Hotchkiss drive system was replaced with an independent rear suspension, indicated by an "IRS" badge attached to the TR4A's rear. Apart from the increase in width and the IRS badge on the rear of the car, other changes included a revised grille and new hood badge. There was also a new line of chrome trim on the side, starting near the rear edge of the door and ending at the front of the car with integrated signal/marker lights, which were moved from their earlier position in the corners of the grille. New smaller front bumpers and a convertible top patterned after the one from the Herald completed the exterior differences. On the interior the fly-off handbrake lever was moved to the transmission tunnel between two revised seats, the gearshift lever was shortened and the white painted steel dashboard was now always covered by walnut, which had been optional in the TR4.
We sold this lovely TR4A nearly 20 years ago to a local owner who cherished it until he could no longer drive it. The car is not restored but a nicely maintained driver that reflects an original unmodified TR4A. It has the optional IRS (independent rear suspension) that was a very desirable over the old solid axle rear suspension found in earlier Triumphs. The steel wheels with Triumph logo center caps give the car a clean, vintage look, and provides ease of maintenance. This TR4A is also equipped with boot cover, tonneau cover, and owners handbook. The car is a very solid example with straight, never damaged frame. The wood dash is free of cracks and the black leather seats in supple condition. This TR4A will give hours of driving enjoyment to any new owner.
