Here we have a very nice Triumph Vitesse Mk 2 Convertible. She has been owned by my family for over 29 years. She has three previous keepers (one of them my dad).  She is Tax exempt and will have a years MOT. She is garaged and the reason for selling is that she is not used enough and is being wasted sitting in the garage. She was the subject of a total chassis up rebuild which was completed around seven years ago. She had copper brake pipes. prated suspension. tainless exhaust plus a tow bar (never used) but left on to protect the rear! 
The engine was totally rebuilt and runs on lead free and the gearbox is sweet and the overdrive works as it should on third and forth gears. The speedo shows around 22000 miles but this is not correct as its a new clock but the engine and ancillaries have all been replaced/rebuilt etc (the engine rebuild inc new cam shaft was over £1700 in 2003 - receipts available)
The hood is good but to be fare it should be ok as once it was fitted it has never been used in wet weather and the car is stored with the hood down. The car has a tonneau cover but this needs to be fitted re studs etc but the fitting kit is supplied with the car. Needless to say there is a lot of documentation with this car inc the hand book and a original work Triumph work shop manuel. There is also a certified copy from the British Motor Heritage Trust of the Factory build record and shows the car as manufactured on the 9th of April 1971
This car is very good and always gets people talking when i am at the petrol station. She does have a few niggling faults which some people may want to remedy. hese are a couple of small rips in the drivers seat plus a couple of very small storage scratches (not through to the metal) and are not noticable to the untrained eye. I just want to be honest. This is a 42 year old car but in my opinion you will not find many better ones.
She is advertised else where.
Cash on collection and please give me a bit of notice re viewing as she is in the garage and it takes a while to get her out!!
