Perfect paint in British Racing Green and original Spitfire 1500 rims with very good tyres! A new vinyl leather interior in Biscuit with dark green piping and matching door cards, a cover and finished with a neat walnut dashboard were fitted in 2020.

Colour: British Racing Green, still perfect both inside and out.
With an original exhaust system and a 5th (spare) wheel with original tyre.
A good-looking Spitfire with a powerful 1500 engine.

The paint is very neat and has no rust or damage, only light wear. In the beautiful colour British Racing Green.
Chrome parts mostly replaced e.g. the rear bumper is as good as new, it is fitted with new rubbers and has neat original rims with good tyres.
The Spitfire has a new soft-top cover in Biscuit with dark green stitching, the soft-top is black and nicely made with luxury Mohair.

The bottom is solid, no rust and neatly restored in the past! The chassis and the supports are damage-free and have a black coating.
The Spitfire features several original badges and two Union Jack side badges, it also has a stainless steel side mirror from TEX, a Monza sports tank cap and nice chrome luggage rack on the boot.

The doors feature chrome handles, the bonnet has chrome side openers and the back features an original luxury chrome cover strip around the wings.

The interior is virtually new and has a new set of black carpets, new Biscuit door cards and two new Biscuit vinyl leather seats. The dashboard is neat and has the original Smiths gauges. The Triumph is equipped with seat belts, original mats and an original steering wheel.
The whole car is really beautiful, they decided to use dark green piping with the leather, this also comes back in the dark green paint which creates a really good match.

Equipped with the original 1498cc 4-cylinder engine with 75 HP and a properly shifting 4-speed manual gearbox. It has been completely inspected in our workshop and it’s had a major maintenance service.
In perfect technical condition, proper brake lines, revised brakes (disc brakes in the front), and good brake and clutch cylinders. This Spitfire is neatly maintained. The kilometres driven are a reading.

This very neat Triumph Spitfire is a fantastic sports car and a feast for the eyes.
A very good and valuable investment and a very nice classic.
The previous owner drove it for over 16 years, lovingly maintained and restored, always neatly stored in a heated garage.
