fully restored tax exempt Triumph Spitfire IV. must see, great example for sale
For reluctant sale. 1972 TRIUMPH SPITFIRE IV. 1300cc in white. tax exempt. 83. 00 miles
I will try to be as honest as I can in my description. however. I would encourage any serious buyer to please come and have a look around the car to see just how good this car truly is.
The car has only had 4 previous owners in the last 42 years(last two family members).
The car was last owned by my son and then I took on the project and have had the car virtually restored to near original glory.
The whole car was professionally reconditioned from the chassis up in 2010 at cost of over £7000. in addition to completely rebuilt unleaded engine at 70. 00 miles. This car now drives as well. if not slightly better than it did when it left the factory. Starts 1st time even after layup!
A comprehensive list of all rebuild details (19pages) is available plus a bulging file of parts invoices that include: nuts/bolts/washers. belts. clips. rubbers. pipes etc plus items such as all cylinders. pumps. valves. cables. hoses. bushes. locks etcetera that have been either fully refurbished or replaced with new. More photos of the restoration are available upon request. Every part of this car was removed. checked and if it was in any doubt. it was refurbished or replaced.
A brief overview of what was carried out on this wonderful classic little sports car -
Chassis fully stripped to bare metal. de-rusted. primed. painted and Waxoyled
Refurbished electrics including alternator. starter. new battery. upgraded wiring
Replacement body parts throughout where necessary.
Re-upholstered seats and carpet so as new.
Cylinder head re-machined. rebuilt fuel system and tuned. electronic ignition
New set of radial tyres
Excellent hood. new seat belts (red. not as OE but I like them!)
Great chrome work throughout
Original Moto Lita wood rim steering wheel
Stainless steel sports exhaust
Full tonneau cover plus hood tonneau in great condition
Sony radio/CD player
Haynes workshop manual and manufactures handbook
Negatives: Basically there is only one. After rebuild. the whole vehicle had a bare metal re-spray in cellulose which was beautiful but unfortunately the horizontal surfaces e. g. the boot and bonnet have been susceptible to crazing (see photo). This was possibly due to early exposure before curing. to the snow and ice experienced at the end of 2010 when the car was unavoidably out of the garage under a cover for a two months.
Due to lack of workshop facilities. I have not been able to get this re-sprayed. However a new. full 5litre can of cellulose paint large enough to rectify is included to enable a prospective buyer to complete the job.
Other than this. the car is in A1 condition. with no faults at all and provides an opportunity to own a great. useable. appreciating classic car in excellent condition at a fraction of the cost of buying and rebuilding.
Also available to purchaser subject to price agreed:
Recon 5 speed gearbox.
Fibreglass hardtop- sound and complete but needs refurbishment
Aluminium Boot Rack (clip on/suction pads)
As mentioned at the top of the listing. I encourage potential buyers to come and look at the car. I am a genuine seller. not a trader. I have owned classic cars for the past 30 years and I would like someone to enjoy this car as much as I have.
Good luck. and please don't hesitate to contact if you have any questions or require any further information.
