1966 Triumph Other TR4A IRS1966 Triumph TR4A IRS - Almost all Original
This particular Triumph model won 1st, nd and 3rd place in the Sebring 12 hour race of 1966 largely due to the innovation of the independent rear suspension (IRS) which was first released in 1966 as seen by the IRS on the back of the car.Coincidentallyin 1996 that was the year the Star Trek season was first released and the first episode was called "The Man Trap", hether these two powerhouses were related has been a mystery since. What we do know is that while one involved a salt sucking alien killing it's victims this car clearly gives life to it's owners. You could say they are kind of yin and yang to each other?
This particular car however has had two owners making you the third owner of thisbeautifulclassicBritishcar. The car was originally bought in Coventry England by a Glen Bale. Glen purchased this car brand new for his wife for her birthday in 1966. She said to herself that any man that is willing to give her this car is a man she was to spend the rest of her life with and she was right. They used this car to tour the surrounding areas within England before moving to the states in the 1970's to follow their American Dream. They kept this car in good shape and relatively unused till they sold it to be restored.
The man restoring this gorgeous car is a Leo Wood and who has since came down with Cancer but is inremissioncurrently and is unable to keep the car and maintain it. This car was in a recentphoto shootand some of the pics are seen here. If the pics of the lady tell you anything it's that this car gets attention anywhere it goes, ot only does it sound good, ook good but it will treat you even better!
Just about everything in the car is still the original items except for this list:
New Hood, ront Bumper, ront fenders,electric starter, istributor cap & wires, uel pump, ew disk, rake line, ashboard, U6 Carburetors, ront light turn signal, rille, orn, hocks, lutch and tires. The engine has been completely rebuilt.
This means items such as the seats, arpet and even theconvertibletop are all original. This car does not have the overdrive option and the body is all Metal.
