ASI – Matching Number

Triumph matching number, fully restored in a beautiful “Pimento red” and white hood with black interior and black leather seats with white piping. The white soft top was recently restored, and the car is also equipped with a beige leather tonneau cover.

The engine has recently been overhauled with the replacement of some components and is equipped with Dell’Orto double-barrel carburetors kit and Hi-Start starter. The instrumentation is the original one, the refined briar dashboard with Jaeger instrumentation and three-spoke metal steering wheel well preserved. Rear luggage rack and double keys complete the equipment of this interesting Triumph. Maintenance invoices made from 2010 onwards are available for viewing.

The Triumph TR4 was launched in 1961 (replacing the now obsolete TR3), designed by Giovanni Michelotti and featured a number of interesting innovations, the most important of which, the new 2.2-liter engine with synchronized gearbox and a new steering box.

Other marginal innovations concerned the side windows, internal ventilation and an innovative hard top (later “copy” over by the Porsche Targa) consisting of a bolted rear window and a removable rigid central section, also available in the “surrey top” canvas version.

The dashboard was also renewed, with the upper part covered in “vynide” and the main instrumentation placed in front of the driver. The rest of the instrumentation was positioned in the center of a black panel, below which the switches and the car radio were located. The three-spoke steering wheel was made of Bakelite and metal.

As standard, the TR4 was fitted with solid rims, but spoked wheels were also available as an option, while in the United States, the car was offered with aluminum and magnesium alloy rims.

The TR4 successfully participated in several competitions in the United States by the Sports Car Club of America.

A curiosity: in the early 60s Ducati Meccanica of Bologna signed an agreement with Standard Triumph to start an Italian production of TR4.

The contract did not have the expected follow-up and subsequently, Ducati limited itself to importing the Triumphs and distributing their spare parts, however at least twenty Triumph TR4s (recognizable by the rear logo) were produced by the Bolognese assembly line.

The TR4 had a great commercial success, from 1961 to 1965 40.253 examples were produced.
