Arriving to us from the state of Michigan, this 1967 Triumph TR4A is a sold project that underwent a full nut and bolt restoration to a customers own specifications.
The car has been stripped down to a bare shell, taken back to bare metal, treated in Jenolite, acid etch primed, primed and painted in Connaught Green. The chassis was sand blasted, painted in 2 pack gloss black before being fully rebuilt with all new suspension / braking steering components. These include all new polybushes, uprated front and rear coil springs, Gaz front and rear shock absorber upgrades, brake discs/pads/calipers, copper brake pipes, steering rack, nuts and bolts etc.
Now the body and chassis have been united with a new fitting kit, all panels and doors have been fitted with new hinges, beadings and fitting kits, as well as various new chrome work. The engine, rebuilt in house, has been fitted with the overhauled overdrive gearbox. The engine bay has then been detailed with all new parts including upgraded electric cooling fan, brake servo and a full CSI electronic igntion and coil kit.
The interior consists of deluxe wool burgundy carpets with a matching dark red trim kit. For the seats, the customer has decided to upgrade the originals and fit Mazda MX5 seats. We sourced original Mk2 Mazda MX5 seats for the customer, had them stripped and completely overhauled in matching leather (with period style stitching), before installing in to the car with conversion brackets. These look and feel superb, whilst at the same time not ruining the period styling of the car.
All water, fuel and electrical systems are new, with every other item on this car either replaced of overhauled during the restoration. After 150 miles of local test driving, the car was delivered to the customer in Liskeard.
