The time has sadly come to sell my beautiful 1977 Triumph Spitfire 1500. I've enjoyed this car immensely for the last two years before which it was stored in a garage by the previous owner for 12 years.

Earlier in its life (early 90's) the car had a chassis-up rebuild which included a very nice piped black leather interior and a Phoenix SS Sports large-bore stainless exhaust.

I have lots of photos of this restoration project and in the time I have owned the car I've had the clutch, inlet manifold (with stainless steel coolant pipe) and alternator replaced as well as having the carbs cleaned and re-timed (early 2020). All receipts can be provided.

The car is MOT and Tax exempt as well as being ULEZ exempt for central London.

The car comes with a soft top and tonneu cover both of which are in excellent condition. The buyer is welcome to a white hard top that requires fairly extensive restoration and is currently located away from the car at my parents in Devon. This hard top has never been fitted to the car by myself or the previous owner and I have it on advice from an expert that you may be better off simply replacing it. I will also include a 'stormforce' car cover as part of the sale.

I want to be as honest as possible about the car so please see my list of things that may need addressing at some point. Otherwise, the car is in brilliant condition:

- The paint is in generally good nick but not prefect.
- The stainless bumpers have a few chips and scratches on them.
- Very occasionally (once in two months say) the oil level in the master clutch cylinder drops. I have looked everywhere I can access for a leak but can't spot one. It could be there is a slight leak at the slave cylinder end. At the moment this simply requires topping up of the fluid and some pumping of the clutch but may require further investigation in the future.
- When the new clutch was going in the mechanic advised me there was an ever so slight amount of play in the drive shaft and to keep an eye on it going forward.
- A few other minor things like the paint on the underside of the bonnet has been damaged by a burst radiator pipe (all replaced) and some minor rust spots but I can point all this out to anyone that views the car.
- The wing mirrors aren't very good.

Hopefully that's plenty of information to get you interested. I would love to keep this car but I really can't keep running three vehicles in central London so please take it, enjoy it and love it properly.
