1962 Triumph TR4
The TR4 embodies classic convertible driving. Sporty, manouverable, and an absolute blast to drive. The drivers choice, this car will put a smile on your face time and time again.
ENGINE: 2.2L Petrol
FUEL: Unleaded 98 ONLY
TRANSMISSION: 4 Speed Manual
POWER: 105 bhp
ACCELERATION: 0-60mph: 10.0s
TOP SPEED: 112mph / 180kph
FUEL ECONOMY: 25mpg
SEATS: 4 - Lap belts in front seats only.
LAYOUT: FR - LHD
WEIGHT: 935 kg
KEY FEATURES: Full power unit, brakes and transmission rebuild, brand new bespoke interior, great handling.
The Triumph TR4 was introduced in 1961 to follow its very successful predecessors, the TR2 and TR3. Code named 'Zest' during development, the body was given a more modern and updated appearance by Michelotti, however the drivetrain and chassis remained the same; using the well proven four-cylinder pushrod unit albeit with an increased capacity to 2138cc.
Handling was improved by a three-inch wider track and the steering was also updated to a more modern and precise rack and pinion system. Internally, the car gained wind-up windows and the new angular rear end allowed for a boot with a very reasonable luggage capacity for a sports car. Production was between 1961 and 1965 and over the years this model has become one of Triumph's most popular sports cars.
The driving experience is a great combination of Triumph's classic engine with precise gear changes, communicative steering and nimble handling which makes for very pleasant cruising abilities. An ideal summer classic.
Our car was built in early 1962 and has been gently restored in Bristol. The engine, brakes and suspension have been rebuilt. The paint on the exterior has been refinished, but the engine bay is original as are all the seats and interior trim. Just as they left the factory!
Overall the TR4 is a very original car, which is quite sporty, and has a lovely exhaust note.
1958 MGA Roadster
Few things are more recognisable than the MGA. A perfect all-round touring car with an unforgettable aesthetic, this car boasts a few upgrades in both engine and brakes to improve safety and reliability.
FUEL: Unleaded 95 / 95-E10 / 98
TRANSMISSION: Four Speed Manual (Non-Synchro 1st)
ACCELERATION: 0-60mph: 13.3s
TOP SPEED: 100mph/160kph
FUEL ECONOMY: 26.7mpg
SEATS: 2 with lap belts
LAYOUT: Front Engine Rear Drive - LHD
KEY FEATURES: Up-rated engine, full servo disc brakes, otherwise an all original beauty.
The MGA replaced the MG TF 1500 Midget and represented a complete styling break from MG's earlier sports cars. Announced on 26 September 1955 the car was officially launched at the Frankfurt Motor Show. A total of 101,081 units were sold through the end of production in July 1962, the vast majority of which were exported.
As it was so different from the older MG models it was called the MGA, the "first of a new line" to quote the contemporary advertising. There was also a new engine available, and the car was fitted with the BMC corporate B-Series type allowing a lower bonnet line. The MGA convertible has no exterior door handles.
It was a body-on-frame design and used the straight-4 "B series" engine driving the rear wheels through a 4-speed gearbox. Suspension was independent with coil springs and wishbones at the front and a rigid axle with semi-elliptic springs at the rear. Steering was by rack and pinion. The car was available with either wire-spoke or steel-disc road wheels.
Our MGA features a slightly up-rated engine along with servo-disc brakes to improve safety. Otherwise this is an all original thoroughbred classic. One of the most recognisable classics around, and a perfect car for touring Provence under its blue skies.
1964 MGB Roadster
Our MGB was rebuilt as a sporty competitor for our Triumph TR4. Featuring and overdrive on third and fourth, and a robust 5 bearing engine, this agile roadster offers a responsive and exciting ride.
ENGINE: 1798cc Petrol
FUEL: Unleaded 98
TRANSMISSION: 4 Speed Manual
POWER: 91 bhp
ACCELERATION: 0-60mph: 11.3s
TOP SPEED: 103mph / 166kph
FUEL ECONOMY: 26.6mpg
SEATS: 2 - with lap belts
LAYOUT: Front Engine Rear Wheel Drive - LHD
WEIGHT: 920 kg
KEY FEATURES: A robust 5 bearing engine, full servo disc brakes, and performance adding overdrive in 3rd and 4th make this MGB a more sporty choice.
The MGB is a two-door sports car manufactured and marketed by the British Motor Corporation (BMC), as a four-cylinder, soft-top roadster from 1962 until 1980. Its details were first published on 19 September 1962. Replacing the MGA in 1962, production of the MGB and its variants continued until 1980.
In structure the MGB was an innovative, modern design in 1962, utilizing a monocoque structure instead of the traditional body-on-frame construction used on both the MGA and MG T-types and the MGB's rival, the Triumph TR series. However components such as brakes and suspension were developments of the earlier 1955 MGA with the B-Series engine having its origins in 1947.
The lightweight design reduced manufacturing costs while adding to overall vehicle strength. Wind-up windows were standard, and a comfortable driver's compartment offered plenty of legroom. A parcel shelf was also fitted behind the seats.
Our MGB offers a slightly modified sportier version of the original roadster. When restoring this car we opted for the more robust 5 bearing engine, and added overdrive capacity for both third and fourth gear. To assure safety alongside this improved performance, we have fitted full-servo disc brakes on all four wheels.

Our car was built in 1984 and fully restored in 2015. It features a new galvanised chassis, front disc brakes and electronic ignition. The archetypal French classic, with full sunroof which can be retracted.
