This is a completely original mk2 triumph vitesse, which i believe has a genuine 44,000 miles on it, however i have no evidence to back this up. I also believe that the car was last on the road in the early eighties.

Apart from the recent alternator conversion by the previous owner (the dynamo had packed up), the car is completely original with an interior that is in amazing condition for an unrestored car. There are no tears or cracks on the seats and no rips in the headlining. The only interior items which haven't stood the test of time are the wooden door cappings which just need re-varnishing, and the carpets.

Mechanically the car is amazing. The engine sounds very sweet with no rattles or rough running, the clutch and gearbox are good, as are the brakes and differential. The previous owner replaced the clutch and brake master cylinders, rubber brake pipes, a few metal brake pipes, fuel pump, fuel line in the engine bay, clutch slave cylinder, radiator, battery and coil. There were also a brand new set of tyres fitted last year. This was all in an effort to get the car running and driving, which it does very well.

Now for the bad bits. This car is a project and requires a fair bit of welding. Off the top of my head the areas which need fixing are front floors, boot floor, bottom of the front bulkhead, all the chassis outriggers on the drivers side (passenger side has been done in the past), rear body mounts, wheel arches and some bits to the bonnet. The bodywork is also poor as can be seen from the pictures.

I bought this as a project to fix up and sell, however with running a classic car garage i simply don't have the time.

I have the v5 in my name, car will need to be trailered. I can email pictures on request.

Triumph Vitesse 1600 Convertible 1965 - Matching Numbers Factory Convertible!

Remarkably the car didn't get any advisories from the last MOT. Obviously the car is exempt from road tax.


One of the rarest LHD models Triumph ever produced.

This could easily be the best LHD Vitesse MK2 O/D convertible available - regarding both condition and fully documented history.
