The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Production Record Certificate for this appealing TR4a states that it was built on September 8th 1966 and despatched a few days later to a dealership in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey, London. Manufactured to Home Market RHD specification, the factory specification included over-drive, independent rear suspension, and a heater. Finished in its original dark blue paint colour with black interior trim, the car was first registered in London on October 8th 1966. The car was acquired by a gentleman in Cambridgeshire in September 1994 and reportedly restored in 1996. After twenty-one years of ownership the car was acquired by our vendor in February 2015. A series of recommissioning commenced as described by the vendor: "the gearbox and overdrive were reconditioned and the crankshaft re-ground with new bearings fitted. The crankshaft oil seal and clutch were also replaced. Other new parts include the prop shaft, up-rated drive shafts with Quaife hubs, brake servo, battery, Revotec electric fan, Aldon electronic ignition, burr walnut dashboard, "Minilite" style wheels with new tyres, wiring loom replaced. The chrome work is in good condition with new bumpers and over-riders. Panels are in good condition, most of which were resprayed in 2016."
