 The very good: Total paint job years ago involved vehicle striped to bare metal. No rust anywhere to be found. Very solid vehicle. New electronic distributor. ebuild Weber carb. . ew high performance exhaust. ith header. New Timing gears and chain. New master cylinder. lutch slave cylinder. ew clutch and pressure plate. hrow out bearing. New brake rotors. rake discs. and shoes. New rubber brake hoses. All new Michelin tires all around. New seats Houndstooth pattern and new carpets installed.   New convertible top installed. New battery. New dimmer switch and headlight assembly installed. Wipers work. heater works. Drives very strong and shifts beautifully in all gears. The mileage is stated as 43185. hich could be correct. but I can't guarantee that as I don't know.   I do know it was sold in 1993 to a second owner I believe and it had 40545 miles on the title. The Spitfire was then put in storage and the body work was done down to the bare metal and painted. The vehicle was sold in 2005 and the new owner did the restoration to the sum of $7000. 00 FOR PARTS AND LABOR.      The headlights work. running lights work. igh and low beam. There is dash lights and interior lights and running lights all the way around. The heater works and the wipers move. he horn works.   . The paint should be buffed out as there are two minor scuffing parts on the paint where someone tried to wax the car.    I am not a mechanic but I am a serious gearhead and I can tell you this car is strong and a blast to drive. It is not registered as of yet. I drove it around our private roads in my complex and it goes through the gears like butter.   This car will have a title which is an old title that was never filled out by last owner. It will be included. However it will be sold with a bill of sale. s Vermont is a non-titled State for vehicles that old. I want a 500. 00 payment to pay pal for a deposit and the rest in cash if you are going to pick it up. or a bank check which must clear before vehicle is moved. I will assist anybody who comes to transport vehicle. but don't want to get involved with any arrangements.   You are buying this vehicle as is. there is no warranty or gaurantee what so ever. It is a project vehicle and I told you honestly it needs only minor work to the best of my knowledge. As you see the vehicle in the pictures is how I am selling it.   The only reason I decided to sell it was that it is a tad to small for my fat as-. to climb in and out of.   Thank you for considering it. Any questions I will try to answer as best I can. A manual with wiring diagram will go with the vehicle. Brakes are all new. Needs a slight bleeding as they appear to be a little spongy. othing more. I tried to be very honest. I am sure I might have missed a little thing here and there. Bottom line is this is a keeper Triumph. Rust free. ver $7000. 00 in parts and labor done. Why spend a few years busting your ba---. when you couldn't buy the parts for the selling price. Included is a Tonneau cover. Stop being a watcher and start being a player. This is the only time this Triumph will be listed. s I dropped the price so much I am going to put it in long term storage next week in Connecticut if it doesn't sell. Located in Southern Vt. . right off Rt. 8 near the Mass. line. for easy transport.
