Ex-Police Triumph TR4 heads to auction

Published 04 July 2019

An ex-police Triumph TR4 is heading to auction. With a top speed of more than 100mph, the 1962 example was supplied to Southend-on-Sea constabulary as a fast pursuit vehicle.

Registered 4100HJ, the car appeared on the cover of the police handbook ‘Advanced Driving Explained’, written by Inspector W H Jobson. The history file includes correspondence from Jobson to the officers that drove the car in active service, as well as period photographs.

It comes complete with working Police sign on the grille, Winkworth bell, air horns and spot lamps – plus a period VHF Pye Vanguard radio in the boot.

The car has been comprehensively restored by Revington. In 2013, the TR Register confirmed a restoration of this magnitude would cost in excess of £60,000.
