1979 Triumph Spitfire
Clear TitleSame owner for 25 YearsGarage Kept81K Miles

For sale is my personal hobby car for the last 25 years. My Dad let me buy her when I was in 10th grade. I've enjoyed tinkering and upgrading it for years. I've done all the hard work. now it's time for someone else to enjoy her… She can be yours. just in time for the Fall driving season! 

Here's a list of the major improvements through the years: 


New carpet from Newton CommercialNew hydraulic clutch (Master and Slave Cylinders)Monza ExhaustRebuilt Engine from Ted Schumacher @ TSI Automotive (increased compression. balanced. cam. pinned thrust washers) (Invoices available for reference. )New HeaderNew Steering RackNew PVC Transmission tunnel cover with added insulationDual SU Carbs rebuilt by Joe Curto (1. 5" Euro Spec)Sport Ignition CoilNew DistributorPioneer Head Unit with Bluetooth iPhone integration and matching 3way 6x9 speakersPanasport Aluminum WheelsRetrofitted with pre-1979 Chrome BumpersFactory Hardtop with matching paintNew parcel ShelfNew Crash PadsRefinished walnut dashboardReplaced rear leaf spring

Includes:Tonneau coverBoot CoverHaynes Manual
The paint on the car is about 12 years old. but she's been garage kept ever since. The car was originally British Racing Green.  I selected a slightly different British Racing Green from a 1973 Jag E-Type I saw at a car show.
The motor is STRONG with lots of torque. she will go faster than you want to go in a car of this size.
(The vinyl top is in good condition but needs to be replaced. One snap has pulled through (see pic) and the cotton backing on the interior has started to dry rot. The tonneau cover has a small tear but can be patched. I've only used it once. )Some surface rust and corrosion in and around the battery box. common to this model.
Please feel free to submit questions. Thanks!
