motodrome are pleased to offer this left hand drive, ex-Californian 1964 Triumph TR4.
Specification, history etc
This one, with chassis no CT/38917-LO and engine number CT39392-E left Canley bound for Standard Triumph in Los Angeles in November 1964, and seems to have lived in the dry California climate all it’s life, with few owners – certainly a Joan Tellian of Glendora California owned it 1988 to 2015 according to old US title docs and old photos, but probably in later years didn’t drive it as there is a photo in the history showing it parked in her garage covered in furniture and bric a brac, but still proudly wearing it’s ‘black plate’ California reg of RRG 423.
It was shipped to the UK in 2016 and recommissioned by the Classic Carriage Company, and UK registered, and has had one private owner since
.When new, it was fitted with the following extras: Overdrive, Heater, 60 spoke wire wheels, walnut dash, sun visors, and screenwash, all of which it retains.
The roof, enamel wire wheels, and the Falken tyres all look to be near-new, and in 2019 it’s had a new exhaust and carpeting.
It’s just come out of our workshops following a thorough check over, and body and chassis wise the condition is as you’d expect for one that that spent almost it’s entire life in a dry climate, and drives really well too.
