1969 Triumph Vitesse MKII Convertible - Full Resto - The Market SOLD by Auction

Sold by Patina
Auction is LIVE now, and finishes on 23rd May at - details above

This car is for sale by the same chap who’s selling the Porsche 911 Targa Supersport on The Market, so his reasons for disposing of his toys remain identical – namely, relocating to Spain with his missus. That brace of cars certainly must have made strange bedfellows in his double garage, but the sheer quality of his Porsche surely stands his later purchase of this Vitesse in good stead too.

Our chap Richard has owned it for two and a half years and bought it from only its third owner, a hobbyist restorer in Liverpool. He says that 'while it’s not quite a concours example, it is in very good condition’ and the body off/bare metal restoration was carried out to a very good standard. The previous owner carried out all of the work, including paint, and there’s a comprehensive DVD of the various processes (see history section, and photo gallery).

Again for our vendor it’s been a Sunday afternoon pootler, with just a sparse 300-400 miles per year added to a clock that now reads 28,342 (whether that’s been round once already is unknown, but this example is one you buy on condition rather than mileage). Similar to his Porker, since its arrival storage has been heated garage.

Originally brown it’s definitely benefitted from a colour change to red – even if when combined with that trademark front-end scowl it’s left it with a touch of an Angry Birds aesthetic. The paint is vibrant and of a remarkably high standard with no evidence of any orange peel. Every panel was either replaced or repaired and they are generally also of a nice fit and finish; the only minor area we can pick up on is that the o/s chrome swage line trim between the door and front wing is a couple of millimetres out – small beer, indeed.

Again owner Richard is honest in his appraisal: ‘the exterior does have one or two blemishes, but it’s in very good condition.` We think he is being rather picky, as we have looked at the photos, and can't find anything significant to note.

The original Triumph badge on the rear end is a little pitted and could be on your target list if you're looking for concours. We’d ditch the later number plates and source some pressed metal units to give the car more of a period look.

The hood mechanism works perfectly and it sports a good quality hood (brand new at the time of restoration), while all door and window rubbers are nice and supple – suggesting that if you go through the parts receipts you’ll find new ones in there somewhere. The original Rostyle wheels complete a very decent exterior picture.
