1964 Triumph Spitfire 4 Mk 1 (Rare) For Sale

First registered 16th March 1964 in Kent.

MOT and tax (RFL) exempt due to its 55 years of age but was voluntarily MOT’d in June 2019 - MOT expiry 26th June 2020.

Purchased 24th April 1976 and has been garaged ever since. Used only occasionally and then always in the dry summer months. For some years the car has been declared “off road” (SORN).
84K miles only which I believe to be genuine.
At some time prior to 1976 a factory reconditioned engine was fitted. This is referenced in the V5C.

In 1976 the car had corrosion around the bottom of the boot, rear wings floor pan and cills and the car underwent restoration to the bodywork and mechanical items including fuel and brake pipes, clutch, fuel pump, starter motor, dynamo, engine bearings and oil control rings. I still have a number of receipts from that period. Please note that the floor pan / cills and boot floor have been welded with the inclusion of strengthening plates.

As part of the body repairs completed by a company in Sussex the colour was changed to Triumph Russet Brown 3123.

Since the discontinuation of 4 star petrol I have always run the car on unleaded petrol plus Castrol Valvemaster, a lead replacement petrol additive.

The car is fitted with seat belts although not a requirement and the electrical system remains as positive earth with dynamo.

Different wheels are fitted as the original wire wheels were suffering from worn splines / adaptors (with difficulty to tighten on the spinners) and I no longer have them.

The body work is not perfect but is reasonable and still has its gloss.

January 2019 new battery, replacement rear wheel slave cylinders, oil and filter change.

Other things to note. Bonnet locks have been fitted. An aftermarket steering lock has been fitted wired to disable the ignition. Door hinges have been re-pinned. Replacement clear screens have been sewn into the hood. Some parts have been re-chromed. 2 fuel filters have been added, 1 in the boot and 1 just before the fuel pump.

A final note. Mark 1 Spitfires are getting very rare today. Some parts such as the interior and wheels are not original but with a small amount of effort a new owner could reinstate these. I have more photos to send on request.
