1963 Triumph TR4Restored, Touring or Local Shows
This is a very nice tour quality 1963 Triumph TR4 roadster that has been restored as-needed. This TR4 is a blast to drive with excellent power, oil pressure and operating temperature. It does everything right. And we love the classic Signal Red livery with the chrome wire wheels.
The Signal Red paint is very well done and is polished beautifully. The paintwork is believed to have been completed in about 2010 and looks great today. It is definitely an overall stunning appearance with the beautiful chrome wire wheels with bub spinners, excellent chrome throughout and a newer black convertible top and tonneau cover. The panel gaps between the hood and the two front fenders is a little uneven, as reflected in the photo gallery.
The black vinyl interior is well done and shows minimal wear. The black seats have the classic white piping and the black carpet is in very nice condition throughout. Over the carpets are Triumph logoed black carpeted mats. The present owner installed a full Bluetooth enabled sound system, auxiliary power points for phones, etc. and externally mounted speakers. The white dashboard trimmed with black vinyl has all of the instruments working well.
The engine compartment is well detailed. The 2,138 cc four-cylinder performs beautifully. The engine was thoroughly rebuilt in July 2020 by Heritage Auto in Costa Mesa. The Triumph has completed about 700 miles since the engine rebuilt. In 2019, the Triumph had a complete rebuild of the clutch, steering, electrical system, motor mounts and more. The entire drivetrain feels just right with excellent oil pressure, operating temperature (even in 100 degree weather) and shifts beautifully with no synchromesh issues. The four-speed transmission is fully syncromeshed. In total, about $10,000 has been invested in the mechanical and electrical systems in the past two years. The invoices are included in the sale of the car, along with a full Service Manual and an original Owner’s Manual.
The early history of the Triumph is not known, however, by May of 2011 it was acquired by John Fildes from Mission Viejo, CA. They enjoyed the Triumph for about nine years selling it to its present owner from Green Valley, AZ.
This TR4 is priced to sell. The Hagerty Price Guide has the No. 2 value $27,700 and the No. 3 value at $16,700. This is clearly right between a No. 2 and No. 3 example and priced accordingly.
