Remarkably the car didn't get any advisories from the last MOT. Obviously the car is exempt from road tax.
This is a lovely and very original example of the ever popular Triumph Vitesse. This one is a 'Vitesse 6' which is an earlier example of the Vitesse models, the car is a proper factory convertible (many are converted Heralds...beware!)...the chassis number starts with HB and ends CV (not DL as per the saloon version). The car has never been an overdrive model (hence the lack of an 'O' at the end of the chassis number which would deplict an overdrive version).
The car is in super order and looks great in her original white shade of paint. The interior is also in very good order and the underside is particular solid and the engine and running gear is in very fine fettle.....a total pleasure to drive. The car has been treated to a stainless steel exhaust system and sounds wonderful as you push on up through the gears.
The service 'box file' is vast and the car has the nice touch of retailing the original handbook.
The car appears to have covered just 93123 miles and old MOT's seem to support this as original and total mileage.
The hood is also in great order and it doesn't take long to whip the hood down and prepare the car for sunshine motoring.
We suspect good 'matching numbers' Vitesse to steadily rise in value as they are a wonderful car to own and drive and compete with modern traffic. The car is really to enjoy straight away and no jobs are required as the car has been very nicely maintained and has only had a small handful of owners over her 52 year life.
We tend to sell good example quite swiftly so please arrange to come and view this lovely old car while we still have her in stock.
We can offer a part exchange service for both modern and classic cars. We also offer highly competitive UK transportation and can therefore delivery the car to your door.
