1967 Triumph TR4A IRS
The Triumph TR4A was built between 1965 and 1967. The TR4A was an evolution of the TR4, updated with a new chassis. It was hoped the new, but more complex, independent rear suspension would address the buying public's desire for more comfortable riding sports cars. This version has an "IRS" badge on the rear. It has been estimated that 75 percent of TR4A were built with IRS. In response to dealer requests, about 25 percent of TR4As were produced with a live rear axle option, similar to the earlier TR4. The TR4A was the first vehicle to offer an option for axle type.
The new suspension eventually proved itself with the buying public and in racing, with three TR4A IRS models posting a team win and finishing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in class at the Sebring 12-hour race of 1966. In 1968 the TR4A was replaced by the 6-cylinder TR5 model with fuel injection
