This very rare Microplas Mistral MKII was built in the USA in 1965 using mechanics from Triumph TR4 and MKII bodywork produced by Microplas in England.

This body was very light and supplied in 6 parts to be shipped easily. It was intended for drivers who wanted to lighten their cars for competitions thanks to a body weighing only 30 kg! In the 1966 movie “Spinout”, Elvis Presley had one too.

This specimen was imported in the 1980s to England and remained in the garage for many years. It was completely restored in 2016-2018 respecting the originality and accessories for competitions. The “nut and bolt” restoration was performed by disassembling the frame to bare (with photographic documentation).

The engine is completely new with Kent Cams camshaft, Dellorto carburettors, oversized valves, reinforced cylinder head gaskets, Derrington aluminium collector, 4-in-1 stainless steel exhaust, custom-built enhanced radiator, spoke rims, electronic distributor and much more.
The gearbox has been completely overhauled, as well as the differential; the entire braking system has been restored and adapted to the lightened size of the car; the racing pedals feature a low attachment and a steering wheel “snap off” has been also fitted to facilitate entrance and exit. All suspensions were restored and wheels were aligned. The car has driven about 1000 km since restoration.

The TR4 version mounts front disc brakes, improved gearbox and rack steering box, contrary to the previous “worm screw” on the TR2 and TR3A, for a better road grip suitable for professional or amateur competitions on tracks, hill or fast road.

The car has been approved with TARGA ORO (Golden Plate) and can be registered in Italian and international competitions dedicated to this type of cars.
Technical inspection valid until May 2021.

The sport history in the USA in unknown.
This version was designed without doors.

    Non capiamo questo Feedback.
    Forse lei pensato di acquistare un'auto funzionante, mentre non si è reso conto di comprare nella categoria "Barnfinds".
    Ha acquistato una vettura da restaurare (prezzo 1200 Euro) che è conforme in tutto alla descrizione e alle moltissime foto. Inoltre, è stata ritirata da LEI con una persona di SUA fiducia che ha controllato che tutto fosse come descritto.

    Dobbiamo anche riportare che ci ha proposto di ANNULLARE il Feedback negativo se avessimo PAGATO NOI le spese del trasferimento di proprietà!
    Questo ricatto è davvero spiacevole, soltanto per risparmiare 200 euro LEI è pronto a rovinare la reputazione di un'azienda seria e affidabile che vende molte auto online in tutto il mondo. Davvero una vergogna.
