    Looking for TR4 or 4A

    Looking to buy a previously restored TR4 or TR4A, preferably one that underwent a frame off restoration at some point but not a show car. Sensible modifications are OK

    Andy, how far are you willing to go.
    We are in NC and my friend has a dark green one he has resonantly decide to let go. Restored a few years back, but always kept inside. He's talking in the area of $20K but I know it will need a valve job soon as he just does short trips and is on choke most of the time. Told him not to do that.
    It has the alternator and headlight upgrades, Wires and Relays. New harness was installed plus seats and carpets. Body is prefect and has the rare back up lights. Took forever to find those.
    I'll get you some pictures if interested. Oh, I built him a Spit6 and that was his dream car, so the 4A doesn't get used much.

    Marv:
    The one in Florence? Looks like a great project, but I am looking for one that has been restored previously. Ideally a car that was restored 10-15 years ago showing some "patina" and now needs a bit of TLC.

    Thanks,
    Andy

    That one is also listed on the Triumph Experience as well as in Hemmings. Seems a bit over priced for an unrestored car.

    I will take an unrestored original car over a restored one any day. And I restore them quite often myself. I have two grd up restored TR250s now. I know whats been done to them but to buy a restored car from somone else I would have to really pay close attention. On another note, I have 67 TR4a to restore later which is a no rust car, most is original paint. It will cost to restore more than the unrestored car price. I have not seen the one in Birmingham but does look pretty original in the pictures.

    Andy, My Father-in-law recently gave my daughter his 4A that he did a body off in the late 90's, he's owned it since mid 70's. I'll be putting her on BaT over the next month or so.

    Re: Looking for TR4 or $A

    Many thanks to Wayne Tate, a long time member of this forum, who led me to my recent purchase of a 1967 TR4A, and who did so much more to assist with the sale. Thanks also to other members who provided their valued input, all of which makes the vintage Triumph community such an enjoyable one. The car is exactly what I was looking for in terms of condition and I look forward to many happy years of "stewardship".
