DescriptionHere we have a 1962 built Triumph TR4 in stunning BRG coachwork. This particular TR4 is one of 3 built by Chestnut House Sports Cars in the mid 1990’s. All 3 TR4’s was built to the same specification, each identified by the colour of the roll cage & spot light bracket. Very well known cars in the TR world.
Starting off with an imported car, it was subject to a full restoration, being registered 10th May 1994, the owner that commissioned the build is the only owner since 1994. The original import papers are present along with the title from America. Starting from a bare chassis, the car then was rebuilt into a competitive road rally car.
The history file is very impressive, most correspondence from the build is present. Invoices present for the future upkeep of the vehicle, servicing/upgrades etc. Most recent work carried out was a rebuild of the engine, including new billet balanced crankshaft, 87mm piston & liner kit, Vernier cam sprocket etc. This was carried out in 2018.
