1962 Triumph TR4: a great driving sports car
A Nicely Restored Triumph TR4
The TR4’s are a long-time favorite to fans of British sports cars: plenty of power, manual transmission and a blast to drive. This 1962 model is a standout because:
- Excellent condition
- Very nice paint
- Like new interior
- Like new top
- Like new tires
For those of you who wish to look further into this car’s history, its VIN is: CT17125L.
A Great Example of the Marque!
This TR4 is as attractive to look at as it is fun to drive:
- Paint and Chrome
The Signal Red paint is a beautiful finish on this car and is in very nice condition. The paint gleams and shows off this sports car’s great lines. Both doors have slight vertical crease marks as does the bonnet.
All of the chrome is in good condition.
The body and interior of the car appear free of untreated rust, and the underside shows only surface rust that is commonplace on a car of this vintage.
The engine compartment is nicely detailed.
The upholstery (seat as well as door panels) was replaced when the car was restored and are like-new. The dash is in excellent condition as well.
The 4 cylinder engine runs and drives almost like a new one. It is a fully capable of propelling this Triumph through the curves and twists of mountain roads as well as docile enough to take you to the ice cream shoppe.
The manual 4-speed transmission shifts properly and smoothly as one would expect in this famous marque.
- Tires, Brakes, and Monitoring Systems
This TR4 has 165R15 tires mounted on chrome knock-off wire wheels. The tires look (see pictures) to have most of their tread remaining.
The brakes are disc in the front and drum on the back that work properly and smoothly in bringing the car to a rapid and safe stop from the high speeds this car is capable of reaching.
All of the engine/systems monitoring gauges/lights (speedometer, tachometer, water temperature, fuel, amp and oil pressure) work properly. Similarly, the lights, horn, and turn signals all work correctly.
The TR4 introduced rack and pinion steering, providing precise handling characteristics.
- Safety and Convenience Features
The TR4 is equipped with driver’s and passenger’s seat belts. Should you get caught in a sudden rainstorm, the like-new convertible top provides a ready answer for your comfort. If your plans include a picnic or an overnight trip, the rear luggage rack is perfect for your picnic basket or your suitcase.
A TR4 that will Dazzle your Friends while fulfilling your Sports Car Dreams!!
This car is in a class of its own: power, cosmetics and FUN! Whether at a car show, dinner at a special restaurant or the track, you can be assured that this car will be noticed and admired by everyone who sees it.
