The TR4 is one of those cars that was always on my list of cars to own. A schoolmate’s older brother owned a red one in the seventies with a chrome roll bar. I remember him picking my mate up at school sometimes and the exhaust node as he drove away.

After owning so many tiny British sports cars during my life, somehow the TR4 escaped me.

The Triumph TR4 is a sports car produced by the Triumph Motor Company from 1961 to 1965. As the successor to the TR3A, the car was based on the chassis and drivetrain of the previous TR sports cars, but with a modern body designed by Michelotti.

In spite of its modern styling, a total of only 40,253 cars were built during its 5-year production run. In comparison, the TR2 sold 8,635 units in its 3-year run from 1953–1955; 74,800 TR3s in an 8-year run from 1955 to 1962; 94,500 TR6s in an 9-year run from 1968–1976, and 111,500 TR7s over a 7-year run from 1975–1981.

Terry seems to enjoy his TR4 and tells us about the restoration and custom add-ons he has done to make it “perfect” for him.
