Since its retirement, this Triumph TR4 Police Car, 4100 HJ, has lived an easier life since is full nuts and bolts restoration that began in 2000. The car has been restored to exacting standards at the hands of Triumph specialists and police historians (more details in Restoration). It has a period correct I-4 motor with ~5k miles on it since its restoration. 4100 HJ was featured on the cover of ‘Advanced Driving Explained’ and was recreated by Vanguard as a special edition model car. This car was restored by Neil Revington of Revington TR Restorations. Tending to the bodywork first, Neil quickly realized a rather obscure discrepancy upon dismantling. Incorrect TR5/6 model B-posts and doors revealed the car, at some point, had previously been repaired and restored. The rest of the bodywork was intact, undamaged, and numbers matching. Neil swapped out the incorrect panels for the correct TR4 units and completed the body restoration. It wouldn’t be until early 2009 that Neil rebuilt the entire drivetrain and powertrain. Now that the car was resurrected as a clean canvass stock Triumph TR4, the car was ready to be reunited with its former bobby on the beat character, which turned out to be another challenge. How does one source such specific and authentic period correct cop car equipment? Well, thankfully the Police Federation Historic Vehicle Club is a thing. Aside from the Winkworth bell still in place, the historic copper club was able to supply all of the other gizmos—to include the rear signals and PYE radio. A handful of Triumphs were converted for law enforcement use but this is believed to be the last remaining example in existence. Heavily documented, sympathetically restored, and toting a rich history, this resurrected TR4 police car offers a unique story adding to an already enticing classic British roadster. Unique opportunity to buy a unique car!
