You get only one shot in life – make it a a Triumph!
Triumph's enduring TR4 represented 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.
Launched in 1962, the TR4 looked fresh with its Italian-penned bodywork, but was, in fact, a clever re-working of a sports car line which could trace its roots back nine years.
The new car's separate chassis and suspension (independent at the front with coils and wishbones, live axle and cart springs at the rear) and four cylinder engine were all much as they had been with the earlier TR2 and TR3 ranges. Though the original chassis was little changed, shims were used to broaden it slightly at the front, and the rear axle grew two inches wider. Steering was now by rack and pinion, first gear finally acquired synchromesh and engine size grew to just over 2.1-litres.

The TR4 is a stiff, precise car. A punchy slogger rather than a high revver, this car has a rough-hewn, “big banger” charm and the sort of pulling torque properties that could uproot trees.
These cars have plenty of nostalgic appeal. They still have their very individual looks and all the original performance, reliability and economy.
These are cars with a good heart, that remain highly usable and represent good value for money.
