Triumph Vitesse Mk2 Convertible OverdriveRe-listed due to winning bidder being able to complete purchaseHi. welcome to the auction of my Triumph Vitesse convertible I bought this car earlier this year as I've hankered after one since selling my previous one many moons ago. Its a sad but much lamented saying but my Stag is taking up so much of my time (and money!) that the vitesse has to go. Added to this my lack of a garage means this poor old girl is spending all of her time on my drive . I searched for a long time to find a nice solid example within my price range that would allow me to improve the car and bring it up to standard. OHR 495G has had a new or recon chassis at some time in its past so no worries there. The door bottoms. D plates and bar at the front of the bonnet are all sound. as are the floors. (cabin and boot) The roof looks like new but as shown in the photo has had a small v shaped repair. this is water tight. but I would have replaced this at a later stage. The engine is sound and runs like a dream with excellent oil pressureOverdrive clicks in and out well with a little lag when cold. The interior is the standard black vinyl and is in good shape. New static seat belts are fitted. The dashboard surround is in superb condition as is the dashboard and door cappings. The only minus at the moment is the paintwork. she presents in her original colour but would really benefit from a respray and perhaps a contrasting shape along the flanks and around onto the front grill. As can be seen from the photos some water has crept under the cover she has lived under on my drive and affected the paintwork on the boot-lid and bonnet. she is also afflicted by various areas of star bursts on the body. I've been told this was the result of poor prep before its last respray. To sum up this is an excellent entry level Vitesse that can be used to attend shows and does not disgrace itself. There are a number of spares to go with the car. a new TSSC oil filter. silicone hose set. alloy rocker cover and gasket and stainless jubilee clips for the hose set. These cars are heading north of 10k now and with a decent spray and new rag top this one will be up there with the best of them.
