This past week I was contacted by Tony Sheach who lives in the UK. Tony owns the ex-works Triumph TR4 rally car that Vic Elford / John Sprinzel etc drove (Original UK Registration: 3VC), and he is also currently restoring another ex-works Triumph TR4, (Original UK Registration: 5VC) formerly driven by Thuner / Gretener. Both of these cars were given registrations in the USA and were driven in the 1964 Shell 4000 rally. I included pictures of these cars from the early 1960’s in my August 13, 2011 post about Triumph TR4 cars.
I hope to get some historic photos and current photos of both of those Triumph ex-works rally cars. I am also interested in the story of both of these cars after the Shell 4000 rally and how they got back to the UK.
In addition to his involvement in those cars, Tony also has another Triumph TR4 that he rallies, races, and runs in various sprints, autotests, and hill climbs. Tony sent me the photo this car below.
Tony Sheach’s Triumph TR4
Tony’s Triumph TR4 has been very well prepared and is fast. I look forward to getting more information from Tony about these Triumph TR4s.
