"I have had a yearning to purchase a vintage or classic car for a number of years and have read Classic Car magazines and trolled internet auction sites until I came to the Waimak Classic Cars Web site. There was a certain classic car listed that was very close to marque and vintage of my first car I ever owned. It was early 50s English favourite. I contacted Jesmond by email as an initial inquiry and he responded promptly and gave me background of the vehicle in addition to what was described on the web site. Obviously an inspection was vital. With then roading problems between Marlborough and Canterbury a convenient time to visit Waimak was agreed given we decided to include a family visit to CHCH to coincide Jesmond was extremely flexible and agreed to meet us in Rangiora to take us to his display site. It certainly was a pleasure to meet both Jesmond and Gloria and it was clear from the outset we were dealing with very good honest and genuine people. We did not purchase the vehicle of initial choice. Whilst a lovely car heart was not where the head was. It just would not fit in my garages! After inspecting and admiring many fine examples we fell in love with a rare for NZ near finished restored 1947 Rover P2. The purchase including a service plus up to date warrant and registration was completed and Gloria arranged the transport of the vehicle to us here in Blenheim. I could not fault the professionalism coupled with warm friendly attitude of both Jesmond and Gloria and strongly commend them to anyone seeking a purchase and or sale of their classic car. Post purchase communication and advice was excellent."

      As British as they come, Triumph's pretty TR4A IRS is a potent and muscular sports car whose values are increasing steadily.

      If you're looking for deadly accurate steering and handling to shame an Elise, then look elsewhere: this is definitely a sports car in the old-school (1960s) sense of the word.


      • Independent rear suspension.
      • All-synchromesh gearbox with overdrive on third and fourth.
      • Rack-and-pinion steering.
      • Surrey Top Model
      • Sold new in Australia - first registered in Mt Eden Auckland in 1973 - only had 7 owners after that.
      • Wire wheels.
      • This restored example is in beautiful condition throughout.
      • Runs and Drives beautifully.
      • Straight rust free body with beautiful paintwork - not a chip or mark on it.
      • Beautiful interior with wooden fascia, new carpets etc - upholstery and door cards in perfect order.
      • Matching Numbers Car
      • This car represents something of a transition for the company’s famous big-engined roadsters in the early 1960s. They were the first in the range to feature that distinctive chunky Michelotti-styled coachwork, which put them right up there with the prettiest cars of the sixties. It offers a real ‘period’ driving experience with its old-fashioned cart-sprung rear end.
      • A highly usable classic, that still represents fine value for money.

      It can be hustled along with aplomb on twisty country roads, that's true, but in some ways this is more an accomplished grand tourer than a screaming sportster. You really could imagine crossing New Zealand in this car. The compact, yet comfortable cabin has it all, from the classic sprung steering wheel to the myriad dials sunk into a stylish slab of polished timber.

      Just take a look at this car and you'll know why you want one – there's not an iffy angle or line anywhere to be seen on Michelotti's masterpiece, from the rounded front to the abrupt rear end. Factor in the grunty 2.1-litre ‘four', which elicits an evocative growl from the exhaust, and there can be few finer companions on a sunny back-road blast.

      It's surprisingly practical too, sporting a spacious cabin and a particularly accommodating boot. Certainly, you could take one on a long-haul run and not have to skimp too much on your luggage allowance.

      The TR4A tends to be the car that many buyers actively seek out – this despite the inevitable higher asking prices. Best of all, these cars are only increasing in value. In fact, these cars are a particularly tempting medium-term investment. At the very least, you won't lose any money; in fact, chances are your return will improve considerably.

      Car will be sold WOF'd and registered if sold in New Zealand.
