Michelotti’s radically-restyled body on a widened TR3A chassis so frightened American dealers that they ordered another 3000-odd TR3As for 1962 instead. Everyone else took well to the sharp modern lines, though there were a few purist mutterings about it having gone soft, what with the wind-up windows and face-level air vents (the first British car to have them). Other benefits included rack and pinion steering, all-synchro gearbox and an extra 150cc in engine capacity. From 1964 the TR4A was more of the same, but with independent rear suspension.
The Triumph TR4 release date is to be announced on Convertible.
