Note: despite having to check clear title to list this as a car for sale, and not as car parts, this car has been a race car presumably all of its life and DOES NOT COME WITH A TITLE!!! It will be sold with a bill of sale only. Getting a title for this car should be easy in every state.
This is a really nice, clean rust free 1965 TR4 race car. While I have pictures of it, in the same livery, racing back into the seventies, I just recently aquired the car in a package deal from a friend. While I would love to build this car, I already have a TR3 race car and a TR6 street car and don't need another early TR around.
The floor boards all seem to be original and rust free. Even the battery box seems perfect. There is some minor surface rust on the frame, that can be wire brushed and painted to be like new again.
Other than a few dings and dents on the fenders, presumably from contact while racing, the sheet metal is all quite straight and there is no damage that I could see underneath, to the frame, or to the inner panels.
The orginal color on this car was a variant of Bristh Racing Green (not sure if it was called Conifer or Laurel or ? in 1965). But you can see in the pictures that the paint is still beautiful in the wheel wells where the undercoating has started to flake off.
The engine is most likely not origianl to the car but turns over. The rest of the missing parts from the negine compartment are shown in one of the pictures and include carbs, distributor and radiator, and a car cover among other items. The car rolls easily.
The beautiful early race wheels are about 6 wide and are undamaged.
This would make a great race or autocross car, or find an interior and windshield and restore it as a street car.
|“Incredible rust free Triumph Tr-4 (TR4) that has been a race car perhaps for its entire life. There is only surface rust on unpainted or marginally painted surfaces underneath this car. This would make an easy race car project, or since the car is so original and lightly modified, you could restore it back to its original British Racing Green paint and have a terrific TR-4.” |
