Mechanically, the car feels very healthy going down the road with it's strong 1500cc engine breathing through it's upgraded Weber carb and sports exhaust header set. The car starts, runs, drives, stops, steers fine with confidence and is lots of fun out on the road. Tires look newer fitted to a restored wheel set with polished beauty rims. PLEASE SEE DRIVING VIDEO. The engine bay is clean and painted in the correct body color. The bonnet looks to be in great shape.Overall, an attractive and good driving Spitfire 1500 MK4 with the bonus of a factory hardtop.
