Accordingly to the DVLA database, there are just 20 early Triumph Spitfire Mk1’s left on Britain’s roads. I bought the car seven years ago and it’s been a faithful and reliable companion ever since. It was restored by the previous owner and has covered just over 6000 miles since.

Mechanically, the car is in great condition. It always starts first time and it drives surprisingly smoothly for a car that's 56 years old! It’s been fitted with a later 1500cc Spitfire engine and overdrive gearbox to improve its drivability. However, I still have an original spec (unrestored) 1147cc engine and gearbox for sale by separate negotiation if required. The whole braking system was replaced two years ago with reconditioned master and slave cylinders, calipers, and brand new disks, pads and shoes.

The chassis and body work is really solid and the paint looks great. It really is a beautiful looking car and draws positive comments wherever it goes. It’s fairly clean under the bonnet too, although there’s some scope for some cosmetic tidying here and there. The chrome bumpers and overriders looks great too but there’s some minor pitting to the rear. The chrome wire wheels look fantastic, but again there’s some minor pitting.

Overall, this is a very solid and reliable car that could be used as a daily runner. It’s just had a fresh MOT (August 2020) and so it’s good to go for the rest of the summer. The car will come with an original heritage certificate and a list of the four previous owners (you would be the fifth owner). It will also come with some old paperwork, including a restoration photo album.

This is a very reluctant sale but my focus is now entirely on rebuilding my Triumph TR4. Therefore, I want to find an enthusiastic new owner who will enjoy it and look after it as well as I have.

I think this is a pretty honest description, but I would encourage you to come and see the car for yourself. I’m based in Sidcup, Kent.
