Some thoughts on this model

Michellott's sketching pen was certainly busy with Triumph product throughout 60's & 70's....evidently most people think of the Stag which was also credited to his design genius, but certainly for me the TR4 still ranks in first place, as undoubtedly the purest of all & subsequent TR models.

Supplied and dispatched as a 'Home' market car to Evans & Cutler Ltd, Plymouth in April 1967, it retains its original Devon issued number of JUP 999E. There's a large history file which focuses entirely on it restoration and rebuild into the car you see today, essentially from 2004-06 and then further engine upgrades during in 2013. Evidently there is further history bringing us up to date, but little prior to 2004 as I'm told via a previous owner, the car was in dire need of rescuing.

Fortunately one can delve back into the history and find a comprehensive description of all the works undertaken during its ground rebuild. They are simply too numerous to list here but I can offer you the following brief summary.

Chassis was shot blasted, repaired & strengthen, all sections zinc and epoxy sprayed and then treated with wax-oil to all chassis sections inside & out. New inner wings & sills fitted, valences, doors and much more, effectively the tub appears to have been somewhat rotten!

As you can imagine, a total refitting of the all interior components followed plus upgrades to brakes, cooling, electrical (new wiring loom) and alot more besides.

Lots of work undertaken on suspension, TR6 front anti roll bar, poly bushed, Gaz adjustable shocks plus a great more bespoke items added.

Engine wise, its built to a TriumphTune stage 3 specification with an unleaded head plus great deal more, but notable items include, new pistons/liners/new bearings & tuftrided drilled followers/Revington Sprint camshaft/TriumphTune inlet manifolds/ Weber 45 DCOE carburettors fed by facet pump plus again significantly more.

Finally the transmission/overdrive was overhauled not forgetting stainless race manifold & stainless steel exhaust....its goes on.

I spoke at length to last the owner who had acquired the Triumph from its restorer in 2012, another able chap, actually a Airline Engineer, who had undertaken further works that all compliment the existing car and its set-up.

The well respected Adrian Blyth bought the car in 2020 for a long standing chum of mine who has enjoyed it immensely but is now moving abroad, hence the opportunity to market it for him now. He's been a very diligent owner, although via his own admission, he knows very little about cars, thus he's entrusted Woody at TVR 101 to look after it for him....judging by the invoicing on file he's done an excellent job.

The Midnight blue paint work is in excellent condition as is the interior, the optional MX5 seats, a known & sensible upgrade, as they offer greater comfort & support look completely at home. The engine bay is beautifully detailed with the lovely pair of Webers making their presence know both in looks and their induction roar!

Its a delight to drive and looks fabulous on the road....instant owner gratification!

It would be a pleasure to answer any questions you might have. However, to really appreciate this lovely Triumph it needs to be seen “in the flesh”, so do please call me directly on 07788 865700 to arrange a viewing at our new Redhill showroom.
