Just posting to say HI.
I am looking at a 1966 TR4A IRS at the moment and i'm hoping if i can sort out some little issues as regards to obtaining the car, i'll be able to restore it.
Picture of the car as it stands.............

Nice looking car and an interesting collection in that field. How long has the TR been sitting there?

Cabrioman
02-07-2010, 12:04 PM
Not sure, I think i saw it being moved from across the road about 10 months ago, but it was covered up so could have been 1 of the other cars.
I am unsure how long it was sitting before someone moved it though.
There's 2 MG's parked behind it and a bodyshell of something but no idea what that is. There is also a Lancia sitting on the other side of the straw bales but not sure what model it is.
Looks 90% complete but i need to open the bonnet to see what condition the engine is in.

.... and a bodyshell of something but no idea what that is.

That body shell is a Peerless GT.

https://www.peerless-gt.co.uk/page43.html

Can you take a few more photos of the car and locate the VIN number. It is under the bonnet on the wheel well. It is a short number... something like GT2 00XXX.

There are not too many accounted for (~75) and us Peerless guys would like to track the rest of the herd.

Thx. Oh by the way, best of luck with the TR!!

Don't look too close, most of the paint is original, but then I'm not afraid to go down a road like you see in photo. I get almost as excited every time I go out to the shed as the first night it was home 3 years ago. You better get over and sort out those issues.

Good catch. The later cars had the front quarter windows. The primary reason for the shift was to provide some strength to the very weak door frame design. Here is a link to a Phase 2 car. Only about 50 Phase 2 cars were built.

Nice find. Critical spots are in the frame rails just in front of the rear wheel wells. TR4A-6 are prone to rot there. BTW that 4A is sporting the very desirable surry top. That alone is worth a good chunk of change.
Hope it works out for you.

I'm with Richard as to nice choice of car and color. :wink:

I asked in your other thread on the luggage rack what a TR4A in that condition would go for in the UK? I'd be concerned about rust given the condition of the rear fender seams and definitely check the frame where the rear A-arms mount as Banjo mentioned.

My original TR4A had similar rear fender body work done and I ended up doing an inner tub and frame replacement with 4 donor fenders when I restored it. The only body parts I used were the hood, doors and trunk lid. Luckly this was 28 years ago when parts like that were cheap ($175 for a rust-free inner body shell and frame).

Scott

Cabrioman
02-08-2010, 01:37 AM
Hey Scott,
No idea how much it would go for in the condition it is in.
Don't even know how much it's worth if restored.
What is the issue with the seams?
I don't know what i'm looking at.

HerronScott
02-08-2010, 07:44 AM
A TR4 or TR4A should have beading in the front and rear seams where the fenders bolt to the body to cover the seams.

TR4/TR4A fender beading (https://www.zeni.net/trf/miniTR4/30.php?s_wt=1280&s_ht=800)

The fact that someone has filled in the rear seams could possibly be a sign of rust in that area. You'll want to check for rust in the floors, rockers, lower front fender area where it covers the rocker panel, rear fenders and the inner body area where the rear fenders bolt on (check through the trunk) and factor in the cost to repair any rust found. This is in addition to the frame where the A-arms attach as mentioned before.

Note that the Surrey top is a desireable option here in the US and go for quite a bit when they come up for sale so that would up the price somewhat.

Good luck and let us know what you find.

Scott

02-08-2010, 08:07 AM
Ok now I will agree with Scott and say a through check for rust would be prudent. While we are all excited about your new car rust is no friend. If the rear fender seams were filled due to rust you can be sure it is other places. It might be a good idea to take additional photos and post or better yet find someone there familiar with TR's to have a look with you. Knowing my skills no rust was the only absolute in looking for a car. I would have bought a clean MG before a rusty TR. Best wishes

Cabrioman
02-08-2010, 08:15 AM
Thanks Guys i am going to try and find out who it belongs to on tuesday also if i can i want to try and look at the engine bay. Rust is a big problem with most old cars which haven't been looked after, but i think i can work on it. as long as most of the car is there and the chassis is straight and in repairable condition, i can work on the rest. I do have 2 fabrictor friends and 2 people i know that can weld + i intend to salvage and repair as much of the car as i can, that way if i do need to buy parts, it should only be rubber, electric or hose.

Not a silly question - the answer is that they are similar in a lot of ways. Suspension, drive train from gearbox back, rear axle, interior, body parts, brakes are mostly all interchangeable. Manual should be useful in that regard.

Belated welcome by the way. Keep us posted!

the answer is that they are similar in a lot of ways. Suspension, drive train from gearbox back, rear axle, I'll agree, but only on the assumption that you are actually asking about a 4A IRS. The TR4 had a solid rear axle & leaf springs, much more in common with the TR3A than the 4A. The front suspension also changed significantly between 4 and 4A.

One look under the rear fender will confirm it is IRS. The seats and console look to have been changed out. I suspect the guages are there to augment non functional guages on the dash. Here is not a great photo but correct interior.

Cabrioman

Cheers for that, Looks really nice.
I think i may have to keep the seats for now and replace them in the future.

what are the dials behind the gearstick? Are they meant to be there? One on the left looks to be a vacuum gauge, can't make out the one on the right. As Richards says, neither the gauges nor console are original.

sail
02-08-2010, 02:02 PM
You might like the seats. Several here have changed out to Miata seats. The ones in there look more Recaro style. The chrome does look decent in photos. Very expensive to redo correctly. When you are looking for IRS swinging trailing arms, as said before, that is the first place to look for rust. Not the arms themselves but where they attach to the frame towards the front of the car. Take an ice pick.

Looks like a nice rebuilder,but like they said,
check for rust on the body and the frame.

Interesting, but probably not particularly important, the front bumperettes appear to be mounted further out (almost obscuring the turn signals and not at all underneath the headlights) than on my 4A. Also, there's no Triumph world emblem or Triumph letters on the hood. That coupled with the later blacked out grille point to a possible history of front end damage.
The console looks very similar to an Amco, but the Amco had a clock centered where those two gauges are.

Don_R
02-08-2010, 05:05 PM
That looks like a short bubble hood. Did the 4A come with that?. may be another clue to possible front end swap.

The emergency brake and gear shift consoles do appear similar to the Amco aftermarket console additions.

Bumperettes do appear mounted farther out since they are partially blocking the turn signal lights but no idea how that's even possible! There are some good pictures of the front of the TR4, TR4A and TR250 front ends here (Select page 24 and scroll up to page 23):

TR4, TR4A and TR4A front end pictures (https://books.google.com/books?id=Mnl_hWPEDqwC&pg=PA20&dq=TR4+Body+%26+Exte rior+Trim&cd=1#v=onepage&q=TR4%20Body%20%26%20Exte rior%20Trim&f=false)

The bubble on the hood isn't the short one. I think it's just the angle of the picture as the side-shot of the car shows it going back to the edge of the hood.

The grille doesn't appear to be the blacked-out version that was installed in the TR5/TR250 as it still has the non-functional half-circle for the crank starter and the center vertical support.

The extra switch on the column is definitely an overdrive switch so that would be yet another bonus for this car in addition to the Surrey top if the overdrive is still installed!

Thanks for the responses guys, It does look like the grille is the TR4 style as Scott said the hole at the bottom isn't there on the TR5 grille.
Overdrive? I thought that was in the gearbox?
I will have a look at the front again and try and take a straight on image, It may be a case of moving them along to uncover the indicators.

HerronScott
02-09-2010, 07:43 AM
Triumphs use a Laycock de Normanvile overdrive which replaces the end cover of the normal 4-speed transmission and through a set of planetary gears that is engaged with a hydraulic clutch reduces the output gear ratio. On the TR4A, the overdrive can be engaged in either gear 2, 3 or 4 with the second switch on the column behind the turn signal switch (right-hand side).

I wonder if the bumperettes were moved out because of the regiatration plate.

Couldn't find a 4A on eBay for that price. I see one that sold for 5,500 in lovely condition with a full year's MOT. I would have thought that the one you are looking at shouldn't sell for more than 3,000 max.
As has been said a few times you need to have a good look under the rear wings for signs of filler poking through. I bought a similar looking TR4A back in 1986 not knowing that there should be beading between wings and rear deck. There turned out to be more than an inch of filler in there.
If the body is bad you may be better off buying an ex-Californian shell (Don't tell the guys on BCF that we are slowly buying all the TRs back!!).
May be worth having a look at the TR4A listing for the one that sold on eBay (https://cgi.ebay.co.uk/TRIUMPH-TR4A-RED_W0QQitemZ380202285569QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAutomo biles_UK?hash=item5885d27a01)
Then ask yourself how much it would cost to bring the blue car up to that standard. Could be worth holding out for a better car given the current depressed market.
On the other hand, if you are looking for a project and enjoy the challenge then the blue car will make a great project. Just make sure that you know what you are getting yourself into!

Wow. That Peerless GT Phase II body looks much better than I thought from the earlier picture. VIN numbers are under the hood on the inner fender. The hood opens to the front. If the hood latches are in place (corners of both sides), you would need the square drive "T" handle wrench to unlock them - the same toilet seat latches found on the TR3 boot, or a big flat blade screw driver.

Thanks again for the pics. Best of luck hunting down the owners - this is part of the fun, and adds to the story telling once you rescue it from them :smile:

Update on the Peerless.
Body has no vin plate as it has had the inner wings cut.
Good news is it was used to rebuild another Peerless so not totally wasted.

Update on the TR4
Guy who owns it was paying the yard to keep it in dry storage.
10 months ago something happened so it was dumped in the field.
I have now covered the open windows so that should stop any more rubbish getting inside.

HerronScott
02-14-2010, 10:12 AM
Glad to hear it hasn't been longer but still sad to hear that 10 months of rain and snow have been allowed to get inside.

Since it sounds like the owner is having issues paying for the dry storage, maybe he will be motivated to sell the car to you.

That does seem to be a very high price for a TR4 with no MOT. Although, the car looks very straight and the views shown don't show any rust and the interior is very smart and straight. However, a car that has been sitting for 30 years will need a lot of work before it is road-worthy and there is quite a lot of surface rust in the engine compartment and on the indicator and light storks, etc. I think that the seller is very lucky with the price of this car.
If you look at the eBay car you will see seams either side of the boot lid that go from the opening to the beading. The beading itself goes along the seam in the top of the wings. It is apparent that there is no rust in those areas, which point towards the car being in good condition. These are areas that you need to check on the car you are looking at, along with the front edge of the rear wing, rear edge of the front wing, inner front wings, particularly where the bonnet hinges. Check that the door gaps are even. If they are wider at the top than the bottom the chassis could be weak. The sections of the chassis where the trailing arms are mounted it one of the first areas to go, particularly at its outer corners.

Cabrioman,

The commission number does show overdrive which matches the switch on the column. It looks pretty complete and not bad for a car that's been sitting.

I do have to ask what the large cannister and assembly is in the bottom right-hand side of the first picture (would be above the fuel pump). I've never seen anything like that before on a TR4 or TR4A. It looks like a vacuum cannister and it's been connected to an additional tap in the intake manifold. It looks like a vacuum-assisted brake booster since there also appears to be a brake line going in and out of it. Not something I've seen so I'm interested to know if this was a factory option or something someone added?

Hey Scott
I had a look at it today and it is something to do with the brakes.
It looks like another master cyclinder and servo but wouldn't know if it was factory fitted or not.

Wondered what what happening with this car, so, inquiring minds want to know if you are going to get it.

I was wondering the same as well.

Any chance there will be a happy ending to this hunt?

At this moment, don't know.
My contact details have been passed on to the owner and until he calls me i can't do anything.
So i have to just sit and wait. :madder:

Hi all, it' s been a while so an update. I still haven't heard from the TR4 owner but my finances have taken a turn for the worst, so at the moment unable to do anything. :frown: but i'm hoping that it will work out soon and then i'll try again.

BTW: That "lump" over the fuel pump is indeed part of the braking system. Vacuum powered servo, Girling. Some other vehicles of the period had two fitted.
