Late model Triumph Spitfire 1500 Sports Convertible. Registered January 1981. 5-Speed Manual (no overdrive). Inca yellow with black interior and black hood.

First Registered in St. Austall. Cornwall. supplied by Carlyon Bay Garages Ltd. Now 94. 00 miles from new with original stamped Service Passport and substantial paperwork history file. Several keys and original blue Triumph Spitfire 1500 Handbook.

This car has always been cherished throughout its life. as illustrated by close to £11. 00 worth of receipts. In Summer 1998 £6. 00 was spent on a full bare metal restoration. which included the removal of glass. engine and ancillaries by a specialist in Somerset. There are two photo albums which contain pictures of the car in 1996. 1998 and 2002 - Pre. during and post the renovation. Just 9. 00 miles since the restoration and the professional paintwork continues to have a deep gloss and just one place where rust has bubbled at the very rear of the drivers side sill. Other than a couple of other blemishes. the presentation is excellent. Some of the brightwork. the hood and the seats have been renewed. The steel wheels were replaced with period look 13" Minilites. These are in excellent order with no kerbing or scratches. Tyres are new all round.

The car has received routine and frequent servicing. Replacement rocker cover gaskets. ixed a small weep of oil in September and the spark plugs and oil were replaced at the same time. Over £1. 00 on maintenance in the past two years (just 1. 00 miles during this time) has kept the car in fine fettle.

The clutch biting point is fairly low and narrow. so it requires careful control for a smooth get away when cold but the car drives well and feels nimble and agile. Not rattly and loose as many older examples can become.

Viewings are strongly encouraged. Please mail for interior photo's which I will take when it stops raining.

Not a perfect example but requires very little to make a show standard car. Long tax and MOT until September 28th 2014.

Cash on collection with a small deposit straight away. Buyer to collect within 5 days of purchase.
