The production car changed little from the prototype. br/>although the full-width rear bumper was dropped in favour of two
part-bumpers curving round each corner. with overriders. Mechanics
were basically stock Herald with the notable addition of front disc
brakes. The engine was an 1. 47cc four-cylinder with a pushrod OHV
cylinder head and two valves per cylinder. mildly tuned for the
Spitfire. fed by twin SU carburettors. Also from the Herald. came
the rack and pinion steering and coil-and-wishbone front
suspension. and at the rear. a single transverse-leaf swing axle
arrangement. The body was bolted to a much-modified Herald chassis. br/>the outer rails and the rear outriggers having been removed; little
of the original Herald chassis design was left and the Spitfire
used structural outer sills to stiffen its body tub. For 1964. an
overdrive option was added to the four-speed manual gearbox to give
more relaxed cruising. Wire wheels and a hard top were also
available. In March 1965. the Spitfire Mk. II was launched. It was
very similar to the Mk. I but featured a more highly tuned engine. br/>through a revised camshaft design. a water-cooled intake manifold. br/>and tubular exhaust manifold. increasing the power to 67bhp at 6000
rpm. The coil-spring design clutch of the Mk. I was replaced with a
Borg and Beck diaphragm spring clutch; North American models
retained the coil-spring housing and were also equipped with
AC-Delco distributors. The exterior trim was modified with a new
grille and badges. The interior trim was improved with redesigned
seats and by covering most of the exposed surfaces with rubber
cloth. The original moulded rubber floor coverings were replaced
with moulded carpets.

This Triumph Spitfire Four Mk. II has been in one family from new
and has covered a mere 10. 00 miles since its purchase from
Portsmouth Garages in June 1965. It remained in Sussex with its
purchaser until August 2010 with all the MoT test certificates and
service book confirming the mileage covered of only 9. 77 miles.
Since then. the car was taken to Triumph Specialists where £6. 00
was spent on all the mechanical re-commissioning and then £13. 00
on new panels and paintwork. all completed to the highest
standards. Finished in the original green with black and piped in
white seats. this stunning and rare Spitfire Four Mk. II is fitted
with a Les Weston steering wheel and supplied with a V5C
registration document. an advise free MoT test certificate. a
number of original documents including first bill of sale. 1965
sales brochure. original hand book and service book. This is a
unique opportunity to buy a very low mileage Spitfire with a
complete history in perfect condition which is ready to use. show
and enjoy.
