1962 Triumph TR4 - 103,918 Miles - 4 Speed Transmission - Front Disc Brakes
This car does have some upgrades.
This older restoration car graced Barrett-Jackson's Auction house when my buddy bought it in 2007.
He has had some health issues and has not used the car in 3 - 4 years. I am selling it on consignment on his behalf.
I am becoming more familiar with this TR4 since it was flat-bedded to my garage.
After replacing the battery and putting fresh fuel in the tank, he car started!
Wow! I was impressed.
I also drove it about 5 miles or so and can tell you the tranny and clutch are excellent.
Tracks nice and stops.
There is a slight pull to one side when applying brakes.
The engine runs rough, ut upon acceleration, ll the cylinders fire.
I think a good tune-up and carburetor rebuild will make it perfect.
As a precaution I pulled the 4 plugs and did a compression test and found all the cylinders have between 190 and 215 pounds of pressure.
In fact, fter the car was purchased, he motor lower half and head were completely rebuilt - I have the receipt dated 2007 for over $5,000.00 as proof.
The car traveled about 350 miles since the rebuild to date.
The radiator neck leaks a little anti-freeze.
Of course the normal minor oil leak is present.
Gauges all seem to work including speedometer and odometer.
Trip meter not working.
Right rear leaf spring must be a little weak because going over a bump, he right side differential axle shaft touches the right rear section of the frame.
Interior is mint.
Top and tonneau cover are excellent. (I don't know how the top goes on.)
No rust.
Excellent chrome.
2 - 3 bubble spots in the paint - too small and insignificant to see in the photos.
Slight gap between driver door and quarter panel.
Door however shuts tight.
I have the passenger side mirror in the trunk.
I believe the car's original color was robin egg blue. I don't see any trace of the blue. Red paint is showroom.
Please have your mechanic check it out because once it's paid for, t's yours!
No warranty or guarantee.
I recently cleaned and adjusted the carburetor and it seems to be running much better.
