Today’s featured car is a 1964 Triumph TR4. Thanks to their slim figure and 105-hp, 2138-cc inline four, these petite roadsters offer capable handling and brisk performance. These characteristics solidified their popularity in period and have earned them a passionate following in the collector car community. The 1964 model year falls midway in the car’s 1961–67 run and represents the last year that the TR4 had a solid rear axles instead of an independent rear suspension.
This particular TR4 belongs to John Nicon, who’s affectionately nicknamed it “The Black Beauty.”
