Introduction

Jacob Boodrie
Professional Consigner

The Triumph TR4A is a great car. Steve has kept the car mechanically sound throughout his 36 years of ownership. This is a good car to drive around in the sun, if the new owner would like, they can use the Triumph as a little project car to keep them going.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Jacob after meeting Steve the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle

Meet the owner

After looking at a few cars in the ’80s, Steve decided to purchase the car to use as a fun machine to feel an invigorating experience of driving a ’60s classic.

He became passionate about owning one since going on classic car treasure hunts with his friends. After buying the car he travelled to France sometimes, whilst amassing 500-1000 miles per year.

Living in London, he kept the Triumph mechanically in check by his former treasure hunting friend at his workshop. Watch our usual ‘Meet the Owner’ video as Steve talks further about his time with the car. He is looking to sell now as he is getting older therefore, using the car less.

Exterior

Whilst keeping the car running well, Steve has not taken time or money to perform a restoration on the exterior, as he just wanted to use the car frequently and not worry too much about the cost as such.

Wheels and Tyres

The wheels are in fair condition showing some corrosion. A full set of 2013 Dunlop tyres have good tread with a profile of 196/65/15.

Bodywork

The bodywork shows signs of corrosion from where you would expect, and a dent on the offside wing panel.

Paint

The paint is uneven and has bubbling across the rear and may need to be refurbished by the new owner.

Glass and Trim

The paint is uneven and has bubbling across the rear and may need to be refurbished by the new owner.

Interior

The interior looks tidy with the potential to look amazing. The classic triumph wooden dashboard is always a welcome sight when on the roads. Please watch the ‘Interior Review’ video to see if this car is to your liking.

Seats and Carpets

Both the seats and carpets are in great condition – Steve mentions that he has the original seats that come with the sale – please see the photos.

Dashboard

The dashboard could be renewed by the new owner, looks tidy considering the age and mileage.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Steve mentions the steering wheel is not original. The 4-speed gear stick functions well.

Mechanics

As mentioned, Steve has taken care of the mechanics throughout his ownership to enjoy the car when he wanted. He was by no means looking to impress the passer-by but used the car with enjoyment and satisfaction.

History and Paperwork

During Steve’s 30 years of ownership, he has used his friend’s garage as his desired place to keep the car in check.

Steve has kept a full MOT history (as can be seen below) that has amassed a healthy mileage record over the course of his ownership.

A list of parts that have been bought for the car can be found in the paperwork section of the media file.

Please see the images below to review all the paperwork that comes with the car. The clock has been changed twice in Steve’s ownership, please see the list below.

Can you still transport the car during these times due to the Covid19 restrictions on travel. If I won, I would need it transporting to Cornwall. Cheers. Phil.

Hi Jason,

We had a delay on this auction due to the current circumstances. We have now put the auction live as there has been some interest in the car like yourself.

If you have registered your card, you should now be able to place a bid at the top of the listing. We are here to help if you need anything else.

Many Thanks,

Tom
