It had a for sale sign inside (not displayed) so I don’t know if he’s just bought it, or if it’s for sale.

Lovely red TR4 (would it be an “A” on a B reg?) on the A53 this afternoon, roof down. Unlike most of the Audi convertibles I saw :roll:

Not an 'A' Phil. B Reg would be 1964, TR4As came in in 1966. I had an early one which was a D Reg. Would love to find that again

Didn’t think so but wasn’t sure as I’ve seen a D reg TR4A and an A reg TR4

saw what i thought was a 308 GTB kit car parked up on the way to get some lunch - on the way back saw the owner lock the door - i hurried my pace but not to obviously...
turns out the car was 76 fibreglass 308 - owned for 18 year and raced for 6 years!....the owner also mentioned 'The Swan Inn' in Chaddesley Corbett classic car meet..
was such a cool looking motor - racing stickers did i get a pic you ask....no :(
