Introduction
The Triumph spitfire was introduced in 1962 at the London Motor show as an entry level two seat sports car. A clever development of the Triumph Herald saloon it used tried and tested mechanical components and a similar separate chassis and steel body construction. The attractive body penned by Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti. Manufactured at Triumphs plant at Canley in Coventry the car proved popular both at home, (costing just £550) and abroad with the majority of production heading overseas. In 1964 the range was revised keeping the 1147cc engine that was re-tuned to 67bhp and making some small trim changes to make the car slightly more refined, but also give more value for money against its rival the M.G. Midget.
Body
This 1966 example is typical of any car produced in the 1960ís, as they offered little or no rust protection during manufacture, however infrequently use and poor stored in a damp garage, this example had covered only 19,000 miles when stored away. As a result of the low mileage and the fact the car was complete a brave restoration has been completed to a very high standard. The Chassis has been blasted and painted Royal Blue matching the body colour no welding was required to the structural sections. All major sections of the body tub have been replaced with mostly genuine Triumph body panels, along with new bonnet, door skins and steel boot lid most of these genuine panels are now obsolete. The car is painted to a very high standard including the underside floor sections that have an equally attractive finish.
Mechanical
Due to the very low mileage the running gear is in very good order, however every nut and bold has seen attention in order to ensure reliability. The car has its original engine matching numbers and standard specification throughout. All Suspension components have been blasted back to clean rust free metal and painted in the original paint finish.
Interior
As a result of the poor storage conditions in which the car had been kept most of trim was damaged by mice or damp. The seats, door cards and carpets have all been replaced with quality items matching the originals. A very high standard has been achieved.
History
The car has had a full mechanical and body rebuild to an extremely high standard, though retaining all the original features unlike many Mk 2 spitfire restorations, this car is possibly the best unspoilt example around.
Even with the original tempting purchase price when new, this example was supplied in London with a rare steel factory hard top detachable fold away hood and tonneau cover making it unusual even back in its day.
Total Mk2 Spitfire produced between, 1964-1967 was 37,409 most of which were for the export market, only 90 cars remain licensed in the U.K. today making this a very unusual sight even at a classic car show.

This car is offered for film hire, magazine shoots, advertising and photography work.Please call Richard for further information.
