The site is dedicated to the restoration of our Triumph TR4A IRS. The restoration is finished, we are changing the regular updates from mechanics to on the road enjoyment as you can see in the picture above and below. Visit the 'Living with our TR4A' section of the website too see updates by year. Use the top navigation for pdf downloads of Triumph manuals and info, the build galleries show how we fixed things and then explore all of the individual pages that make a great reference if you are trying to put things back together. If you want to see life with TR4A click the picture on the left. It will take you to the regular updates on the never ending work and fixes a TR4A needs.

Jay wants a stunning 1965 TR4. He starts out wanting to do most of the work himself. But, when Fantomworks solve problem after problem, Jay asks them to do more and more work. Jay’s goals are larger than his time frame – so something has to give.
Triumph TR4A restoration site - Welcome. The idea is to use this as a record of the build so I don't forget anything and to share experiences and knowledge. My own technical ability is limited but I guess I am like most guys that can fix a few things on a car. So bodywork is not my thing and nor is an engine rebuild but putting it all together and refurbing parts is something I quite enjoy. (I wrote those words at the start of the restoration - the amount I have learned along the way is immense and if I can do it, anyone can. Patience and time are all you need - the rest works itself out. Paul Anderson 2016)
This TR4A has been in our ownership for 23 years and it is the car we used at our wedding. The engine had to come out as it needed a rebuild and that was the moment the decision was made for a full restoration.
Picture at the very top header of the page shows our TR 4A just after restoration and back on the road. The colour scheme is Triumph White with Matador Red Interior and 72 spoke centre laced wheels. (The correct colour schemes and details for the Triumph TR4A can be found in "The Restorers Guide" by Bill Piggot.
The pics above show the condition of the TR before the rebuild. It had just enough work done to keep it on the road. Go to "The TR before we started" to see more. The navigation menu-headers also have content so click on those as well as the sub-menu drop downs.
