SELLER REMARKS

British. attractive. nimble. and meticulously restored this 1977 Triumph Spitfire is everything you want at an affordable price.


You're looking at the best of Europe. Italian styling wrapped in a nimble British package and named after a famous WWII fighter plane. These Mark IV series Spitfires had arguably some of the best styling cues of the bunch with the flat rear end that was shared with larger Triumphs like the Stag. If this one seems particularly appealing to you. that's because it received a careful restoration during its lifetime to keep this droptop at its best. The Royal Blue paint has a sophisticated presence that coordinates nicely with the darker elements like the taunt black roof. fresh weatherstripping. and the Spitfire stripe on the rocker panels. Plus. it also makes the bright elements really standout such as the mirror-like bumpers. luggage rack. and the upgrade to Minilite-style wheels.


The Spitfire was always about representing the plucky nature of a British sports car. That meant an interior built for function. but in true English fashion. form-fitting style was still a priority. This nature is at its best in this roadster because nearly everything was rebuilt or replaced during its full restoration. That's why the black vinyl on the seats looks the same as when this car got off the boat in 1972. The dashboard is low enough to give you a commanding view. but there's still plenty of room to hold the heater/defrost controls and the full gauge package. Plus. there were some nice upgrades added like the auxiliary power plugs. Sunpro volts gauge. and the AM/FM/CD stereo with remote and USB input. From the moment you slip behind the wheel. you know why Spitfires were legendary. The three-spoke sports steering wheel is the perfect diameter. and your right hand just naturally rests on the gearstick. This will fit you like a glove. and make you want to play hooky on every sunny day. If the weather does turn gray and wet. then just remove the new convertible boot cover and raise the black vinyl top with one hand.


The 1. 3-liter motor in the Spitfire is certainly small. but there's much more to this story. This lightweight powerplant has been upgraded with a Weber carb and Cannon intake. Plus. you can tell by all the stainless hoses and the overall tidy setup that there has been a lot of care that has gone into this engine bay. So this is little Spitfire knows how to get aggressive without losing its sprightly charm. In fact. the consignor was happy to drive this down an hour to our showroom. And his eagerness is exactly how these became so popular. The car barely tipped the scales but had a level of rigidity not seen on other roadsters of its day. These were built on a solid backbone chassis with lightweight metal partial unibody. This gave them a solid but nimble feeling on the backroads. and it only got better when paired with the four-speed manual transmission. fully independent suspension. and front disc brakes.


This Spitfire almost seems too good to be true. but we have original warranty card. owner's manual. restoration photos. and build receipts that prove the amount of sweat equity (and money) someone invested. It's an amazing roadster that will bring you more open top joy than anything at even double the asking price. Call today!!!
