From Down at the barns.
The unique Triumph TR4 interior and exterior looks a feels like a true British sports car, but what makes this vehicle so rare is that it was supplied to the Southend constabulary in May 1962 as a speedy pursuit vehicle which was designed to chase down reckless or speeding drivers on the A127 in Essex. Once out of service it was passed around several owners before turning up in Somerset in the late 1970s until John spotted it after initially looking for a Porsche 911, back In the 1960s the car was used two shifts every day, racking up roughly 1,500 miles every week and originally thad no seat belts with one officer stating he "hung onto the underside of the seat whilst in fast pursuit".
