Looks nice but I’m surprised the police used the TR4

Not very fast, underpowered and heavy for its size

Not expensive if you really want one on restored condition. But i think the queue of potential buyers will be very small.

It’s surprising what the Old Bill used as pursuit vehicles. My favourite has to be the Daimler SP250 Dart.

I just love that police TR4.

But I do like TR4s anyway. What a great story.

And the Daimler Dart - Mmm not a brilliant choice as a pursuit car!

Thanks for posting tho - a great start to my day.

Now for more physio on the knee - it's all going ok.

I’m sure I’ve got a photo somewhere in one of my car books of a Daimler Dart as a police car

I’ll have a look tonight
