HCC  BRING YOU THIS REALLY EXCELLENT TRIUMPH SPITFIRE 1500 . ITS AN OVERDRIVE CAR THAT WAS RESTORED AT GREAT EXPENSE AROUND 7 YEARS AGO AND IS IN FANTASTIC CONDITION DUE TO EXTREMELY  LOW USAGE SINCE  . WE HAVE BILLS RUNNING INTO THOUSANDS  FOR THIS CAR . EVERYTHING WAS GONE THROUGH METHODICALLY BY ITS ENTHUSIAST OWNER AND THE END RESULT IS ONE OF THE BETTER CARS OUT THERE THAT PERFORMS . LOOKS AND HANDLES AS A SPITFIRE SHOULD .
BODYWORK : WAS TAKEN RIGHT BACK AND PANELS CHANGED AND REPAIRED AS NECESSARY TO A HIGH STANDARD . THE CAR WAS PAINTED IN BRITISH RACING GREEN AND IT HAS A SUPERIOR SHINE AND FINISH TO ALL AREAS . DOOR SHUTS ETC ARE FINISHED TO A HIGH STANDARD . O EVIDENCE OF ANY RUST / BUBBLES ON THIS CAR AT ALL . DOORS . BONNET . BOOT OPEN AND SHUT NICELY 
INTERIOR : HAS BEEN RENEWED WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE SEAT COVERS WHICH ARE IN GREAT SHAPE AND FINISHED IN STANDARD HOUNDSTOOTH PATTERN  CARPETS ARE LOVELY WITH FOAM UNDER DOOR TRIMS ETC ALL PERFECT . THE SEATS HAD NEW FOAMS FITTED AND ARE VERY COMFY AND SUPPORTING NOW . DASH FASCIA WAS RENEWED AND A GOOD TOP-PAD WAS SOURCED . NO RADIO OR EXTRAS FITTED . ENGINE BAY ; THE OLD ENGINE WAS REMOVED AND FOUND TO BE WORN SO A NEW EXCHANGE ENGINE WAS FITTED . WITH MANY NEW ANCILLARIES . THE CARBS WERE REBUILT BY ANDREW TURNER ( THE GO TO GUY FOR THESE )  AND PUT BACK WITH NEW PARTS . AGAIN EVERYTHING WAS GONE THROUGH METHODICALLY AND REPLACED AS NECESSARY . ITS A VERY CLEAN TIDY AND DRY ENGINE BAY 
BOOT AREA . IS VERY CLEAN AND TIDY . EVIDENCE OF A COUPLE OF SMALL REPAIRS IN ITS LIFE . THE CAR WAS BOUGHT FOR ITS INITIAL SOUNDNESS PRIOR TO THE WORKS
CHROMEWORK : BUMPERS WERE RECHROMED AT A GREAT EXPENSE ( TOO MUCH !) AND SHINE LIKE NEW 
WEATHERGEAR: THE CAR WAS TREATED TO A NEW HOOD THAT STILL LOOKS AS GOOD NOW AND HAS HARDLY BEEN USED . ITS GOT THE ZIP OUT REAR WINDOW  WHICH IS A NICE FEATURE AND A HOOD TONNEAU COVER TO TIDY IT IN TAN TO MATCH THE INTERIOR (SEE PIC) . WINDOWS ARE UNSCRATCHED AND PERFECTLY CLEAR 
UNDERSIDE . : THE SUSPENSION AND UNDERSIDE WAS COMPLETELY REFURBISHED . MANY NEW PARTS SPRINGS/SHOCKS/ CALIPERS . POLYBUSHING  AND MUCH MORE GIVE THE CAR THE SUPERIOR RIDE IT HAS OVER  MANY OUT THERE AND THE UNDERSIDE IS VERY VERY TIDY . ITS BEEN WAXOILED . NICE SOUNDING STAINLESS EXHAUST . THE CAR HAS NEVER INTENTIONALLY BEEN OUT IN THE RAIN SINCE ITS RESTORATION . IN THE PAST 3 YEARS MOTs IT SHOWS NO MORE THAN 200 MILES PER YEAR USAGE .
DRIVING : THE CAR STARTS ON THE BUTTON AND WARMS UP WITHOUT ANY FUSS . ON THE ROAD THE CAR DRIVES FAR NICER THAN MOST A TESTIMONY TO THE MONEY AND HOURS SPENT ON IT . IT STEERS /HANDLES /STOPS EXTREMELY  WELL . RAKES ARE STILL THE STANDARD SINGLE SYSTEM SETUP WITH NO SERVO BUT PULL UP VERY WELL AND EVENLY . THE EXCHANGE  ENGINE IS VERY RESPONSIVE AND STILL FEELS TIGHT . TS ON POINTS WHICH IS EASY FOR MAINTENANCE AND IT ALL RUNS VERY WELL .  GEARS CHANGE WELL . WITH JUST THE USUAL SLIGHT "CLICK" THAT MOST ( ALL EVENTUALLY )  HAVE ON THIRD IF YOU GO IN TOO FAST  BUT ITS A REALLY PRECISE BOX  AND CLUTCH /GEARCHANGES ARE EFFORTLESS  AND A PLEASURE . OVERDRIVE ON 3 AND 4 CUTS IN AND OUT VERY SMOOTHLY
PAPERWORK : LOTS OF OLD MOTS . SOME TAX DISCS. MANY BILLS TO SUBSTANTIATE THE WORKS CARRIED OUT . CURRENT V5 . VEHICLE IS HPI CLEAR ON ALL COUNTS 
SUMMARY : I COULD PEN AN ESSAY ON THIS CAR BUT THIS REALLY IS A SUPERIOR EXAMPLE OF THE MODEL . TS A 76 SO WILL QUALIFY FOR HISTORIC ON THE ROLLING 40 YEARS SOON . ITS HAD 7 OWNERS AND ITS LAST OWNER SPENT MANY THOUSANDS OF POUNDS AND COUNTLESS HOURS OF TIME ON IT TO MAKE IT INTO THE GREAT LITTLE CAR IT IS TODAY . IF YOU SEEK A SPITFIRE GO AND SEE THE REST THEN COME AND SEE THIS ONE . ITS FANTASTIC. NOT PERFECT . BUT REALLY VERY VERY CLOSE  ! THE PAINTWORK HAS A FANTASTIC SHINE AND DEPTH   . IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE OR YOU WANT TO VIEW PLEASE CALL ME ON 07876 16886 (9AM TO 9PM PLEASE ) . LONG DISTANCE ? OVERSEAS  CALL ME FOR AN HONEST DETAILED PHONE DESCRIPTION OF THIS LOVEY EXAMPLE . IF YOU SEEK ONE YOU  DEFINATELY WONT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS ONE . ITS A FANTASTIC EXAMPLE . THE LOVELY FRENCH BLUE CAR ALSO A 76 WITH EXCELLENT BODYWORK WILL BE AVALIABLE SOON . A DEPOSIT WILL HOLD THE CAR BUT IS NON REFUNDABLE IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES . OLD AS A NON WARRANTY ITEM DUE TO AGE ( NOT AFFECTING YOUR STATUTORY RIGHTS ) SO  PLEASE VIEW THE CAR AND MAKE UP YOUR MIND PRIOR TO ANY COMMITMENT . BRING A MECHANIC IF YOU WISH .
