1966 TRIUMPH TR4A OVERDRIVE CONVERTIBLE WHITE
1966 TRIUMPH TR4A WITH OVERDRIVE –
This is a well presented and solid TR4A supplied after light recommissioning work after being in storage for some time.
This vehicle first originated in the USA before being imported to the UK in the mid 1990’s where it was then converted to RHD. Since then the car has had 4 owners (the last having owned the car from 2002).
As a whole this is the basis of a very good car. The bodywork is in good condition with no rust issues, the engine develops very good oil pressure without any issues. The gearbox and rear axle is smooth and without any rumbles, knocks or bangs and with overdrive available on both 3rd and 4th gears which does operate correctly. The vehicle looks to have had some new seals recently at the base of the windscreen, around the door frames and around the boot.
The bright-work is in good condition including the wheels. The chrome having only pitted slightly on the rear over-riders. The hood is in very good condition too while mounted on a good frame.
Due to the car being stood there was a certain amount of recommissioning work needed which included the following: Carb overhaul (new seals etc), New 165/80/15 Continental Tyres, engine oil & filter, spark plugs, gearbox oil change, diff oil change, re-wiring of the overdrive and a clean down and rust protection underneath.
The car is currently running on Stromberg carbs however we do have some SU’s that can go with the car complete with inlet manifold.
As a result of the recommissioning the vehicle now drives beautifully, developing good power while looking sharp again when buzzing along the country roads!
in short, in our opinion this vehicle is a very good basis to make into something more special yet still presenting very well and being in a good usable condition in all aspects.
A good, worthy investment.
