Barry purchased the Triumph in March 1968 in
Townsville, Queensland, Australia when it was twelve months old with
3,000 miles up. A heavily modified 1961 TR4 was traded in as
part payment. In late 1971 the TR4-A was traded on an Alfa 1750 GTV.
In late 1973 however, Barry was looking for a "big" Healey but stumbled
across his old TR4-A, so it was regained, albeit not in as good a
condition as when it was traded on the Alfa. A major
mechanical restoration was undertaken in 1987 and a body restoration
in 1989. The car was being used rarely and in January 2013 has
been sold to someone who will care for it and give it some exercise.
