The Triumph TR4 was a sports car manufactured by Standard-Triumph as a replacement for the previous Triumph sports car, the Triumph TR3. The TR4 was a break away from the very rugged previous TRs by being more comfortable and having more standrad amenities to help it compete with rivals in the American market. Some of the new amenities were things such as, wind-down windows, a much larger trunk, wider front and rear tracks, and rack and pinion steering.

GTR4 Dove

GTR4 Dove

The GTR4 Dove was essentially a Triumph TR4 coupe-style fixed roof, similar to the later MGB GT. The vehicles were first made in 1961 by London Standard-Triumph distributors L.F. Dove of Wimbledon who contracted the coachbuilder Harrington to carry out the conversions. With the addition of the roof, the GTR4s weighed about 500lbs. more than the standard TR4.

The GTR4 was mechanically similar to the TR4, but a number of small alterations were made. The Dove had overdrive as standard and also had a new fuel tank that held 15 gallons. Thanks to a more balanced engine, the Dove had a fuel consumption rate of about 25-30 mpg, compared to the typical 23 mpg for a TR4.

Worldwide

If the vehicle is sold in other markets worldwide, then this is the section to mention that information. Also, mention if the <MODEL> goes by another name in these other markets.

Design quirks and oddities

Triumphs were shipped to North America without external mirrors; consequently, any mirror found on a Triumph would have been a dealer / owner-installed item.

Awards

List out notable awards that the model has recieved while in production. Boldface the company or orgainization that gives out the award, and Italicize the name of the award.
