This is my Triumph Spitfire. I've owned her for 6 years and have enjoyed every minute! I will be sad to see her go.
I've had a fair bit of work done over the years: Engine cleaned, new ignition and fuel pump, the carburettors have been reconditioned, and the distributor was refurbished at the same time. All new hoses fitted and new anti-roll bar bushes.
I have re-built the speedometer drive on the gear box end, which is when I discovered the car has overdrive. (It has never been connected so I cannot confirm whether it works or not, although I see no reason why it shouldn't).
The car is reliable, starts the first time and ticks over happily on idle. The hood is beige in colour, it is dry with no leaks and although it's not very pretty - it does the job!
While tidy overall, the paintwork does have some age-related, signs of wear and tear.
The bodywork in general is good, but there are a few patches (inside the boot lid and bonnet) that would benefit from tidying.
The interior is beige vinyl, it is clean and comfortable. The dash is original, there is a small patch of veneer peel.
The car has 4 good tyres with plenty of treads.
Great fun to drive, she can be driven immediately and improved over time.
As an Historic vehicle, she is MOT and TAX exempt. However, every year I put an MOT on her, for my own peace of mind. In 2018 she failed her MOT - ALL of the work has been done, and she now has a full MOT until July 2021.
This is a great little sports car and for her age, she's a good example. She's not showroom material, but then she's not a project either. A fun British Sports Car, ready to enjoy.
