This Triumph TR4A was completed on 24 January 1966. The car left the factory finished in Signal Red with a black leather interior and black top. Shortly after completion the car was shipped from the Samuel Williams Wharf in Dagenham on 9 February 1966 destined for North America. Upon arrival the car was delivered to the Standard Triumph Motor Company Inc. of San Francisco, California.
Today, this 1966 Triumph TR4A presents similarly to the way it left the factory. The car benefitted from a restoration completed around 2012. Presented in Signal Red, the car shows beautifully and features dual sideview mirrors and Triumph’s unique Surrey removable hardtop, a two-piece hardtop that allows for either a targa-like driving experience or that of a full open convertible. The car rides on Vredestein Sprint Classic radial tires which are mounted on chrome knock-off wire wheels. The interior is completed in black with white piping, it features a wood dashboard, Jaeger instrumentation, Smiths clock, a Moto-Lita steering wheel, and Triumph radio. The trunk houses a full-size spare and Thor knock-off hammer. The Triumph is accompanied by a BMIHT Certificate, Triumph TR4A owner’s handbook, as well as photos and receipts from its restoration.
With its stunning styling by Michelotti and its versatile hardtop, the Triumph TR4A is an impressive British sports car. The meticulous restoration on this example is evident, making it a perfect candidate for showing as well as enjoying on the open road.
