Auction Block: 1961 Triumph TR4

Aug 2, 2017

Category: Rides

Though they are certainly most well known for their motorcycles, Triumph actually has a long and somewhat confusing manufacturing history which also included a fairly long list of 4-wheel vehicles. One of the highlights of that history is their TR4 roadster – of which one was recently discovered, restored, and is now up for grabs.

Discovered in fairly bad condition in a Kentucky barn in 2009, this little sports car was brought back to life over the course of five years by Danny Morton from Sterling British Motoring Society in Kentucky. Now with a gorgeous blacked-out exterior contrasted sharply by the brilliant red of the interior, she’s still powered by her original inline four-cylinder engine with an original four-speed manual transmission and 86,086 miles on the odometer. It even comes with full documentation of its sympathetic restoration (meaning as much of the original parts were included as possible). It’s selling on Petrolicious for $39,995.

Purchase: $39,995
