1971 TRIUMPH SPITFIRE MKIV. 1296cc. FULLY RESTORED. VALENCIA BLUE. LOVELY CAR. £7,495.
This lovely Mk4 Triumph Spitfire finished in Valencia Blue was first registered 1st August 1971. It has the 1296cc engine and all synchro 4 speed gearbox. The car has had only 5 owners in 49 years and has covered 99,000 miles. According to the history file in 1988 and at 88K miles the then owner embarked on a restoration and had wings, sills and valances repaired and painted, new trunnions, road springs, axle rebuild and spent over £1200 back then. By 2000 the mileage had increased to only 92k (4k in 12 years) and it received new tyres, a new soft top hood, brake rebuild, new clutch and a new radiator. By 2006 and now at 99k miles the car needed refreshing and was dispatched to a Triumph specialist for new rear wings and a complete new bonnet before having a respray. Sporty bits included a 4 branch exhaust manifold, a GT6 stainless exhaust (which sounds fantastic) and K&N air filters. New water pump, refurbished wheels, brake master, wheel cylinders, carb rebuild and seat rebuild also done at this time. Car comes with original Triumph Passport to Service book and a owners handbook. Drives really well and look just great.
