By the time this Triumph Spitfire 1500 was built, it was already considered a classic. The Spitfire was indeed one of the last classic british roadsters, and arguably offered more fun for money than anything else on four wheels. Ordered in Russet Brown with a beige houndstooth interior, the little sports car has a distinctive Seventies look, in line with current colour trends.
Our 1979 Triumph Spitfire 1500 TC was sold new in the Netherlands and retains its original Dutch registration. Some 20 years ago, the 3rd owners commissioned a professional partial restoration. Still looking great today, this Spitfire has been well kept and is ready to be enjoyed.
The paint work was professionally refinished at restoration and looks fabulous. A few minor traces of use can be seen, all photographed in detail. Both chassis and body are in healthy condition, without visible traces of past repair work.
The interior is in good condition. Original seat upholstery, of which the underlying foam has started to turn brittle. Also, the dashboard's wood veneer shows some small cracks. Vinyl soft top in good condition, although some of the buttons and studs could be replaced. The original hood cover is included.
A well running and driving Spitfire, with extensive service work completed in the past year: motor oil + filter, air filters, rotor, distributor cap and spark plug cables, drive belt, fuel pump, master brake and clutch cylinders and exhaust system. Valid technical inspection (APK) until 08/21.
This is a well cared-for Triumph Spitfire in a great colour, ready to be enjoyed.
