FFotW: 1963 Triumph TR4

by

..

Ohhhh..the very beautiful but over-shadowed Triumph TR4. The precursor to the legendary TR6.

The TR4 didn’t have the riggley running problems of the TR6. And might I say, a tad better looking than it’s younger brother. Hell, the TR4 is the 2011 Coffee & Classics poster boy, so you know it’s worthy. $12500 isn’t cheap, but it’s far cheaper than the $30k it took to get to where it’s at today.

In the owners words:

Completely restored. . . all systems rebuilt, replaced or renewed – Including:
Engine w/ new bearings, liners, pistons & rings, performance cam, roller rockers, ported head and manifolds. . .. quick!
Transmission w/ new bearings, sychnros and counter shaft.
Suspension, brakes, wiring harness, radiator, rebuilt carbs, fuel pump, water pump, ft sway bar and much, much more..
Interior totally restored . . . leather seats, carpet, new door panels, dash top, quality fabric top, windshield, tonneau cover, clarion stereo w/ amp

Looks good – runs better than new. . . if you want a classic you can drive and not just look at this is it. . .

$12,500 OBO Call 847-997-2492 for details and a ride.
Palatine, IL

    very pretty indeed. And you’re quite right about the TR6 being unreliable. Mind you that’s most english cars until the last 10 years! I love classic cars but could no longer live with them. My last one (merc280sel 1970) was wonderful but just couldn’t be used for everyday. and now wit petrol costing $130 to $150 a litre who could afford to!

      I grew up in a 1968 911 and a 1972 280sel 4.5. My father drove the 280 it until 1985. He never had any issues until the trunk rusted through.
      My daily classic is a 1990 Range Rover Classic, yes there’s always some light on the dash flashing at one time or another. But I love it like you would an old pair of work boots.
      $94AUS = $86USA to fill up the Rangey depending on what grade fuel you use.
