Triumph had, ever since the inception of the TR, been a strong, regular contender on the international rally scene. VJA 20 is a very early TR4 built as a private entry for the 1962 Monte Carlo Rally. The driver, Edwin Hodson, was a well-known privateer and had been named by the Daily Express ‘the fastest man on ice’. Leaving from Glasgow Hodson was considered a strong contender, failing to finish the rally just a few miles from Monte Carlo following a slight altercation with a snow drift! Restored to a very high standard, this is a historically important TR4 that, in the right hands, is not just an entry but a winner of the best historic rallies in the world.
