This 1973 Spitfire came in on a trade a month or so ago. The car is in pretty good shape. Seats are near perfect. Carpet looks nice. Top is NEW. Tires are close to new with 80%+ tread. The car starts up immediately with no smoking or noises. Clutch engages just like it should. It runs and drives like it is supposed to. The top comes on and off very easily and has a boot to cover it up when it is down.  Floor boards are solid with no visible rot and no rot underneath. Carpet is there. For some reason there is a square piece of carpet that is missing on the drivers side floor board that is covered by a black floor mat. Dash is in great shape. The car looks good underneath. There is some bubbling and small bits of rust showing on the bottom of the driver's rocker panel. I took as many pictures of the problem area(s) as I could. The car has obviously been repainted at one time. The paint job looks decent. It is a great driver. not so much a show car. There are small imperfections in the paint here and there. but nothing major. You have to get up pretty close to see the bad spots.  
The guy that traded in the Triumph used it as his daily driver for about three months. He put roughly 60 miles a day on it. 5 days a week. for three months. It never left him stranded. He traded it to me because he was "sick of having to put the top up and down" and the car had a brake fluid leak and a loud wheel bearing. He didn't know where to get parts. When I got the car I order a rear wheel bearing kit and a new master cylinder from English Parts out of Michigan. After putting those two items on everything works great again. NO ISSUES WHAT-SO-EVER. Get in it and DRIVE!

I took as many pictures as I could. If you need something else just ask.
