For Sale is a lovely 1979 Triumph Spitfire 1500.

I recently bought this car and I am now unfortunately having to sell due to personal unfortunate circumstances.

When I bought the car, the clutch had completely gone. In my ownership, I have replaced the clutch as well as the release bearing etc. The engine has been removed as thoroughly cleaned and serviced and is in very good running order. I have also replaced the water pump and given the carburettors a service and clean. The engine is very strong and has an original 47000 miles (backed up by receipts and old mots). The only slight issue is the viscous clutch fan knocks slightly at low rpm but this is not a serious fault and does not interfere with the running of the car in any way. The gearbox has had an oil change and shifts very well and positively. The brakes are good and the overall drive is very good and incredibly fun. Good tyres all around. It really is a great car to drive. There are no faults anywhere and everything works! The hood does not leak and is in good condition. A new exhaust mid section has been fitted as it had cracked.

The interior is complete and in good condition with some wear on the drivers seat showing a small hole (shown in pictures) but they are usable and comfortable.

Overall she's in good, usable condition and shines up very well for great drives with the roof down (even in the autumnal weather)!

If you are interested in viewing the car which I highly recommend then please contact me via email on [email protected] and if you have any questions then please just ask. The car is located in Sandy, Bedfordshire. Cash on Collection or a bank transfer is acceptable with a non refundable deposit needed for the ad to be taken down from the internet. (The latter stated as I have been mucked around by people before and if you are a serious buyer then a non refundable deposit should not scare you...). Any questions please ask!
