The Spitfire was an inexpensive small sports car and as such had
rather basic trim by today's standards. including rubber mats and a
large plastic steering wheel. It was nonetheless considered fairly
comfortable by period standards as it had roll-down windows and
exterior door locks as well as a relatively full instrumentation.
These early cars were referred to both as 'Triumph Spitfire Mk. I'
and 'Spitfire 4'. not to be confused with the later Spitfire Mk IV.
The 'Spitfire 4' name indicated the possibility of the later
appearance of a six-cylinder version. In UK specification. the
in-line four produced 63bhp at 5750rpm. This gave a top speed of
92mph and would achieve 0 to 60mph in 16. 4 seconds. Average fuel
consumption was 31mpg. In March 1965. the Spitfire Mk. II was
launched. It was very similar to the Mk. I but featured a more
highly tuned engine. through a revised camshaft design. a
water-cooled intake manifold and tubular exhaust manifold. br/>increasing the power to 67bhp at 6000rpm. The coil-spring design
clutch of the Mk. I was replaced with a Borg and Beck diaphragm
spring clutch. 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. It was introduced at a base price of £550. compared to the
Sprite's £505 and the Midget's £515. Top speed was claimed to be
96mph and its 0-60 mph time of 14. 8 seconds was considered
lively.

This national prize winning 1966 Triumph Spitfire Four Mk. II with
overdrive was subject to a complete nut and bolt. chassis up
restoration in 1998. It changed hands in 2001 and in 2006 the new
owner took it to renowned Triumph Specialists Jigsaw of Kettering
and invested a further £5. 00 on a mechanical rebuild including: a
rebuild of the original engine to stage two fast-road specification
running on unleaded fuel giving 75bhp. the gearbox with D-type
overdrive rebuilt. rear differential. fitted stainless steel sports
exhaust and the suspension polybushed; it has only covered 2. 00
miles since. Finished in green with matching hard top. black
interior and Moto Lita steering wheel. this stunning car comes with
many prize-winning trophies for shows attended. This Spitfire is
supplied with a V5C registration document. an MoT test certificate. br/>a Heritage certificate. seven books of pictures of the rebuild and
two large box files of invoices. This is one of the best early
Spitfires ever to come to market and a perfect investment
opportunity.
