1965 TRIUMPH TR4  Bags of personality, this ‘wind in the hair’ Michelotti styled TR4 is easily maintained and tremendous fun. With its optional hard top, the facility of an enclosed cabin provides for ‘all seasons’ motoring which has no doubt contributed to the preservation of this car’s astonishingly lovely, original interior. Though many TR’s are resurrected as rebuilds, low mileage and largely original survivors such as this are much rarer. With an impressive file of paperwork charting its life, there is also a very unusual photographic record of this car – the first pictures being taken at the original owner’s home when it was less than a week old. The car was photographed again at 22,000 miles in 1978 for a Sothebys auction catalogue (testament even then to its outstanding condition) and there were more photographs taken by the second owner in the early 1980’s.  It was photographed again ‘as found’ following some years in dry storage and more still from 2008 when the owner re-united the car with the original family taking snaps of it on the same driveway spot where it had stood back in 1965. We acquired the vehicle 8 years ago and very sympathetically rejuvenated it to show condition. It was stripped and repainted as original (please see photographs in bare metal) and this shows how solid the bodywork is. The metal dash was also removed for painting as original while the rest of the interior required nothing more than deep cleaning being extremely careful not to spoil the original finishes. Since then, this TR4 has been cherished in perfect storage conditions, and although barely driven the maintenance has been kept up . Finished in Jet Black with Matador Red upholstery, this car looks absolutely stunning and it is immaculate. With service records and just 47,000 miles covered from new this TR4 is an  unrepeatable opportunity for the purchaser seeking a correct, unmolested example.
