Description

This is an unmolested 1965 TR4A IRS. It has original 50,300 miles on the clock. The floors and trunk are solid, the brown material in the image is rug not rust. It will need quarter panels and lower rocker panels. The engine turns, I have not attempted to start it as I do not want to suck the gas through the engine. The convertible frame is in good shape and the canvas is there although would probably need replacing. The seats are ok, door panels and dash are ok. You can get it running and drive a patina vehicle or give her a full restoration and have one the enthusiast will envy. This is a numbers-matching car with a clear title and lots of restoration parts included. The car has been stored since 1978. Upon information and belief, this is a UK build gray market car over from Germany.
The TR4A looks like a TR4. The cars share some body parts and have a similar engine, but everything else differs. The TR4A is on a wider frame with a redesigned suspension. The front suspension is adjustable for camber and the rear suspension is independent. 1965 was the first year this upgrade was introduced.
Harry Webster’s IRS design started around 1962 to evolve into a 1965 TR4A, the TR4A was as different from the TR4, as it is from the TR3A. The new chassis-frame had a radically different layout from the previous cars. The rear suspension was semi-trailing wishbone plus coil spring, that design was proven on the Triumph 2000 saloon. The TR4A kept lever arm shocks for ease of installation. The IRS cars received a massive pressed-steel bridge piece to support the differential casing and provide upper anchor points for the coil springs. When prototypes were made ready for the road, the new chassis was pronounced “safe for 120 mph” so the 2138cc engine was given its final boost, to 104bhp at 4700 rpm.
The TR4A was phased in at the beginning of 1965. Body production changes were limited to a new grille, decoration and badging, and with new body-to-chassis mountings. Triumph was now the first British car manufacturer to have all-independent suspensions under every car in their line.
In Q1 2011 there were approximately 789 licensed and 153 DVLA
