Just taken in part exchange , a 1971 TRIUMPH SPITFIRE MARK IV with Factory Hardtop & Tonneau Cover

This is a smart, well presented example of a stylish British classic, in very good condition, good mechanical order and with a handsome patina.
Under the bonnet, the 1. 3-litre Standard SC inline-four has been replaced with the 1. 5-litre motor from a Spitfire 1500, coupled with a four-speed manual transmission. It shows excellent oil pressure

The odometer currently indicates 34, 000 miles and is believed correct as the car has spent many years stored in a private collection.

First registered in October 1971, this Spitfire has just four previous keepers on the log book, and has been with its last keeper for around a year.

The body is in good condition and is very presentable throughout , with the odd age related mark and minor blemishes around the front end.

Underneath the car is very clean and tidy , painted in body colour and thoroughly waxed to protect the car against the elements. The engine bay area is clean and well presented.

Accompanying the vehicle is the original owner’s handbook, as well as a good history file and some old maintenance receipts.

The last service was undertaken in August 2020 at approximately 34, 000 miles, where mechanics fitted a new fuel pump, sender, filter and an uprated radiator, before stripping the carburettors and fitting new plugs and points. Prior to this, routine servicing was carried out in October 2019, The car has also received new switches, dials, rubber seals and a new distributor.

The car runs and drives very well, and that it has evidently been well maintained.

It would make a fun and characterful weekend cruiser, and could be an ideal ‘first classic’ for someone more used to modern machinery.

We can arrange delivery and will take another classic in part exchange, of any value.
