1968 Triumph TR4A IRS The Michelotti-styled Triumph TR4 built on the success of the TR3 with masculine good looks and respectable performance. It also added the comfort of roll-up windows and the enhanced drivability of a fully synchronized gearbox. The TR4 was successful in competition and featured many advanced features for its time including rack-and-pinion steering and front disk brakes. Unlike some other small roadsters of the 1960s, the TR4 has plenty of power to feel safe merging in traffic and overtaking other cars on country roads. It is hard to find a TR4 in any condition, and even harder to find a nice, unmolested, rust-free example like this one. This Triumph is well sorted and a great driver. It's rust free with original paint and good panel gaps all the way around. The car has enjoyed the same owner since new and is still on its original Georgia new car title. It was purchased from a dealership in Memphis Tennessee and then registered and kept in Atlanta Georgia it entire life. Under the hood, the original matching number engine is fed by pair of well-tuned Stromberg sidedraft carburetors. The suspension and gearbox are both nice and tight and the car is ready for the road or show. Like the exterior the upholstery, carpet, wood dash and Jaeger gauges are all original to the car. The top and tonneau cover are in excellent condition, in fact the tonneau has never been out of the box. All of the original chrome is in great shape. This is certainly one of the most original TR4A IRS car you will find anywhere.
