Triumph TR4 1963 (Private plate) Silver
Details of 1963, TR4, 800 FYN.
I am the sole owner of the vehicle. There is no outstanding finance on it. I am selling because at 74 and with arthritis, driving it is becoming a bit too physical.
I bought it ten years ago as a complete restoration project. I stripped it completely and began the re-build by buying an ex-Californian reconditioned and powder coated chassis from TR Bitz. There followed all new suspension and bushes etc. Everything necessary was replaced. TR Bitz did all the panel replacing and welding. Nothing was spared and everything necessary was replaced. I then had it painted by a Liverpool firm. TR Bitz did the final bits of restoration including the engine finishing. Here again everything necessary was replaced. The hood is as new. It is fitted with a Laycock Overdrive, a stainless steel exhaust, leather seats, inertia reel seat belts, an alternator and a spin-on oil seal. All else is as original.
I have enjoyed driving the car immensely these last five years and I have never used it when salt and grit are on the roads. Knowing that ?12 was to be my last year with it, I have done just over 4k miles! This has included trips to Mull, Cornwall and Pembrokeshire. Throughout this, as ever, it has behaved impeccably. I have done all the regular servicing and oil changing myself. A part of the fun.
TR Bitz have done anything else necessary and this included fitting a new aluminium petrol tank two years ago. I would not anticipate major expense as I continued to use the car. Its value can reasonably be expected to increase.
I have some of the receipts for the above and a full photographic record which will be passed to a new owner. I will also pass on an original Workshop Manual.
I wish to retain the registration number. The car is always much admired. It is ready for instant enjoyable motoring and years of continued pleasure. I will miss it, but the time has come for me to move on. I have already purchased a modern sports car so that I can continue to enjoy my motoring.
I can be contacted on 078 8191 1509 or at email@example.com The car is ready for inspection in Liverpool.
The price is negotiable and I will not refuse a realistic offer.
Dr R John Elford.
