Description

"Introduced in May 1962, the Triumph Vitesse was a six-cylinder sports saloon based upon the four-cylinder powered Triumph Herald. Having designed the Herald, Giovanni Michelotti made revisions to the design evolving it into the Vitesse and resulting in the ‘slanted’ four-headlamp design.
This is a superb 1.6 litre example of one of the very first Vitesse convertibles with the ultra-rare single clock. We are informed this example has benefitted from significant expenditure and is referred to as a ‘go anywhere anytime classic’ and a Best in Show winning car on multiple occasions. Fitted with overdrive on third and fourth gears to ensure this example has no problem keeping up with modern traffic. Sitting on wire wheels with the sporty twin exhaust, this Vitesse has a concealed stereo and benefits from a new clutch. Our vendor has owned this car for over nine years and states that when not in use the car has always remained garaged away from the elements. This is quite possibly the very best example of this great British classic and we are informed a total pleasure to both own and drive.
