TRIUMPH SPITFIRE MK 4 1500 1977 SOLD
|FOR SALE TRIUMPH SPITFIRE MK 4 1500CC |
First reg 06-04-1977
For sale highly collectable Spitfire Mk 4 1500 in gleaming white, the car was fully restored some twelve years ago, receiving a totally rust free Californian rear tub section, brand new bonnet and doors along with a bare metal respray(i have a paint thickness gauge to prove this).
Thousands have been spent since 2009 with the large history folder showing receipts in excess of £7000, hundreds have been spent on small items which as you know soon add up.
Highlights of the rebuild and subsequent years of cherishing have seen a new rear diff, up-rated and lowered suspension which has been lowered a tastefull 1 inch all round and now sits and handles how triumph should have made it, braided hoses, polybushed throughout, performance exhaust, unleaded conversion and top end overhaul, a set of stunning minilites alloys in silver with polished rims where added some eighteen months ago, due to low dry use only mileage in this time the alloys as you would expect are totally blemish free, and shod all round with good tyres.
The car also benefits from factory fitted overdrive which helps keeping up with modern traffic, the car has a genuine mileage of 110.735 which is nothing for a car now on it,s 40th birthday, the past eight mot certificates help to prove the low use the past few years of this car.
The car has a fresh MOT which was carried out on the 12th of April is taxed and insured ready for any test drive and sale.
A tonneu cover and indoor cover are included as well as a nice period krooklock with two keys.
The interior has the benefit of fairly new black carpets and period stereo and pioneer speakers.
The car is in very very easy A1 condition with everything working and driving as it should, the only niggles being a small tear to drive seat base(a easy repair with a seat kit) the hood being slightly care worn a new one would lift the car even further and a small dent to the top of the rear wing, a skilled pdr technician would resolve this very small dent in a short space of time....given the car is now forty years old i think we can forgive these few niggles plus gives the new owner something to do with regards future enhancements, which will only add further to the purchase.
Spitfires are getting a rare sight on the roads now and this would make a very sound investment, given the previous work carried out over the years.
Two matching keys, history folder, old mot,s, log book in possession, insurance valuation certificates, owners handbook.
I am selling this on behalf of a friend who having moved has lost the secure dry storage, rather than see the car being left outside has decided to reluctanly sell.
The car can be viewed at very short notice, test drives are no problem but you will need proof of insurance.
I have been sensible and priced the car to sell, given the direction with which Spitfire prices are going to date.
The car is located near Lodden, just outside Norwich NORFOLK, east access from the A47...
