Triumph Spitfire 4 Mk2
The Triumph Spitfire was introduced at the London Motor show of 1962. The stylish body was designed by Giovanni Michelotti and the running gear was based on the Herald. Although more expensive than the MG Midget/Austin Healey Sprite the design. linked to good performance. proved very successful and the Mk2 followed in March 1965. The Mk2 is the rarest of all Spitfires with only 34. 00 produced during a two year production run.
Our car was purchased by Terrence Hickling on 25th October 1967 from Beacon Garage. nbsp;West Bromwich for the princely sum £520 and he retained the car until 2015. The Spitfire was on/off the road at various times during those 50 years with a variety of mechanical. nbsp;body and interior improvements in addition to a rigorous maintenance regime. Work included replacement bonnet. wings. door skins. boot lid. valances and interior during the 1980's. a reconditioned overdrive gear box in 1990 and a stage 1 engine in 2009.
The car is an absolutely stunning example that drives as good as it looks. The
underside/wheel arches are white paint. the engine has covered 12. 00 careful miles and the contrasting red interior/mohair hood are excellent. The history folder has MOTs back to 1970. lots of invoices and a variety of period sales broachers. nbsp;handbooks. lubrication charts. workshop manuals etc.
This is an exceptional opportunity to purchase the rarest of all Spitfires. The bodywork and interior are corrosion free and very original. the in-period mechanical upgrades work extremely well and make this car a pleasure to drive in modern road conditions and a real tribute to Terry's mechanical knowledge.
We urge early viewing of this stunning car
