It sold for $97,200 because someone decided that it was worth it to him or her. That’s it. Period. End of story
This Triumph TR4 is a two-year, frame-off restoration. Everything on this vehicle is new or rebuilt, including the engine, transmission and overdrive, rear axle, front and rear suspension, brakes, and new electrical components and wiring, five stainless 60-spoke Dunlop wheels with radial tires, and original bumpers with new chrome.
It has a new black leather interior with white piping. The engine has the 87 mm pistons and liners, and brand new SU carburetors. The exhaust system and brake lines are stainless steel. Upgrades to stock include a walnut burl dash and wood steering wheel, and Pertronix ignition replacing points in the original distributor.
The 1963 TR4 is painted an original Wedgwood Blue. This car has no compromises. The best components were used during restoration, and it includes a car cover and vintage tool kit to go with the new convertible top. All receipts are included and total $85,000.
