"I have, for many years, hankered after a Saab 900 Classic (pre 94) Convertible. For good measure the car needed to be a manual transmission. This model is very thin on the ground in New Zealand but I was lucky enough to spot one that turned out to be from Waimak Classic Cars. Buying a car unseen from 1500 km away was made very easy by Jesmond and Gloria. An inspection was quickly arranged and completed, and was accurate. Excellent communications made me feel very comfortable with the deal and now I have the vehicle I must say it is fantastic - exactly as described and promised.I highly recommend Waimak Classic Cars should you be in the market for such things."Stuart, Auckland, New Zealand
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.

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 can only increase in value. In fact, these cars are a particularly tempting medium-term investment. At the very least, you won't lose any money; chances are your return will improve considerably.
Car will be sold WOF'd and registered if sold in New Zealand.
TRANSPORT / WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.
