Here we have for sale my wife's immaculate Spitfire. only for sale due to ongoing poor health.  This is a pristine car that underwent a complete bare metal nut and bolt restoration in 1992 by a local Jaguar restoration specialist (which included a complete body removal). and has complete history including receipts and even a video documentary. Since it's restoration it has done very little mileage and is in even better condition as all minor niggles have been fixed and sorted.  This is a very original car that was restored to factory spec at restoration.  There is a full and comprehensive folder of it's history and it has recently had within the last twelve months a complete carb overhaul. new water pump. hoses. radiator. seat restoration to include new foams and covers. vacuum advance unit along with a new hood and restored frame.  There are far too many items to list here and the car is easily capable of being a concours winning car if that's your thing. If you're looking for a very original. solid and sorted Spitfire with show potential this is the one. It is best to call and discuss and I can provide multiple photos on request. This is not a car that has been poorly restored for sale; it was restored in 1992 and the Jaguar specialists work has clearly paid off as can be seen by the ongoing immaculate condition. so please. no time wasters.
