1963 Triumph TR4: Just Rolled Out

1963 Triumph TR4

There are some cars that sellers say, “Just needs a little love” and I quickly roll my eyes. From cars stored under damp car covers beneath a tree to examples left to rot with numerous mechanical issues, a little love is rarely all that is needed. But this 1963 TR4 here on craigslist for $5,000, which appears to have been garage-stored with another classic keeping it company, looks fairly solid and not too far removed from driving condition. I’ve always liked the TR4s for both its looks and racing pedigree carved from successes at Sebring and Daytona. Although I’d want to find a matching hardtop for this car, the rest of it appears to be all there – but the seller needs to offer up a few more details to move forward confidently. And for the price, I’d expect it to be rust-free – what else would you be looking for?

    As the song said, “..money can’t buy you love”, but a lot of it sure would help getting this poor thing back in shape.

    Ohhhh, just maybe, maybe this was my first car in 1971, bought for $500 and run hard for a few years of outright fun, sold it , bought a few inbetween and then bought a bentley special for $900 …. the days when cars were cheap and women many.

    Yep, wash, it wax it, put in fresh gas, go for a spin!
