Triumph TR4A


 
As viewed and collected. Previous restoration begun and abandoned 10 years ago.
 
 
Stripped down and chassis blasted. Off to be powder coated.
 
           
Jump forward and the chassis is finished. Suspension all rebuilt, gearbox rebuilt, engine checked over (rebuilt previously) and repainted. Awaiting fitment of bodytub in background.
 
           
All panelled up, good gaps and any modifications made. Now it is all removed again for paintwork.
 
             
Build up progressing nicely. Really starting to look like a car again.
 
            
Dashboard going in, lots of missing pieces to be sourced. Roll forward to the finished interior, refurbished original steering wheel, recovered centre console and rebuilt seats. 
 
             
Refurbished hood frame ready for a brief period with it's original hood before the owner decided it deserved a new Mohair hood.
 
            
Really clean underneath. Twin stainless exhaust, spax front dampers and braided brake hoses are the only departure from standard. It drove beautifully first time out on the road.
 
 Who doesn't love a classic red sportscar?
 
 
                                                                                
Great contrast between sparkly chrome wire wheels,red paint and dense black hood.
 
 
 Smart Michelotti styled rear, fins and all.
 
 
Immaculate engine bay, so much room!       
 
 
Walnut dashboards are still the best.
 
 
                                                                                 
 A treat to build, and great to drive, shame to have to hand it over!
