1965 Triumph TR4A IRS

This outstanding UK supplied TR4A IRS was first registered on the 17th September 1965. This model with overdrive and Surrey Top is the most desirable of all TR4 models and has come to us in excellent condition. EGM 562C was subject of a major restoration around five years and has with been with its last owner since 2010. Prior to this the car has had just two owners, the first owner from 1965 to 1983, and the second owner, a lady in Scotland from 1983 to 2010.

EGM 562C comes with MOT certificates dating back to 1983 when the mileage was just 30,306. By 1991 the mileage was 31214, in 2002 just 31337 and by 2012 only 31650. It was around this time the TR4 was subject of a major body off restoration and since then the car has covered a further 5000 miles, more use than the previous 29 years. The rebuild included a top quality body restoration, the bare chassis was stripped and re-painted, the interior totally re-trimmed, the brightwork replaced as required, new wire wheels, the engine rebuilt and the cylinder head converted for unleaded and both the rear axle and gearbox were stripped and rebuilt as required. The result of the work was a stunning, yet still original looking car that was ready for regular use which it has now had for several years.

On the road the TR4A IRS feel tight with direct steering, sharp brakes and excellent handling. The engine is very strong holding excellent oil pressure, the four speed gearbox is smooth with excellent syncromesh and the overdrive comes in and out smoothly. The bodywork is very sharp with lovely straight panels, a high quality paint finish and chrome work is excellent. The Surrey Top is in excellent order, the boot area exceptionally clean, as is the smarlty presented engine bay. The inteiror has been professionally re-trimmed with high quality leather, excellent wood dash, high quality carpets and door cards. On lifting the carpets stunning bright white floors are revealed, inner wings are equally impressive and the underside is well presented. This is a beautifully presented, low ownership car that has been restored to an excellent standard and is now ideal for regular use and long distance touring,
