Take a look at this Triumph Spitfire!  This is a solid car that you can get in and drive.  I bought this car from a retired school teacher four years ago. It was her baby- garage kept- always covered- never saw rain or snow. She no longer had the time and patience to maintain the car. Since I have had it I brought it mechanically up to snuff:
 - New U-joints all around - New Brakes - New Poly Transmission Tunnel and Insulation - Repaired Electric Overdrive- (Big Difference for Road Touring) - New Heater Control Valve - New fluids all around  - Pioneer /Jensen Radio and sound system- CD. Aux and Satellite Radio
General Over view:
The body is all metal. no rust or bondo anywhere. Paint has a small crack in the Bonnet at the flex point just above the headlight- sealed with matching touch-up paint- All around a few stone chips in the paint- This car cleans up real nice !
The chassis is solid- suspension is tight- No squeaks or rattles- A blast to drive on the curves!
New U-Joints on axle and drive shaft. Transmission shifts smooth- Lots of clutch- E Overdrive flawless- Engine runs strong- Idles smooth- Good rubber- 80%
- Like most vintage British roadsters this one has a  small Rear Seal and Differential Oil Leak   that needs to be inspected and topped-off at the start of driving season.
PERFECT! -No tears. cuts or cracks-Including Dash- Reapolstered  Hounds Tooth and Black scheme- Clean intact carpet-w/ set of floor mats- All gauges and indicator lights working
Other stuff:
- Comes with nice Tonneau cover with center zipper- Convertable top is perfect- No tears or marks anywhere- Built in Battery Minder for Winter Storage- Rear Wheel Hub Puller (a necessity when doing axel or   bearing work)- Chilton Repair Manual
