1967 Triumph Vitesse 2 Ltr **NO RESERVE** £1 start! for sale
For sale here. is a very nice example of Triumphs 2 litre Vitesse that is Taxed and MOT'd until September 2014 and goes as well as it looks! To make things a little interesting. it is to be sold with a genuine ‘NO RESERVE' and will start at just £1. so however you value this lovely Triumph. please leave your highest bid knowing you are in with an excellent chance of owning it.
I make no apologies for the length of the description that follows. as I have found from selling a number of classic cars on ebay that the genuine and serious buyers out there appreciate an honest and in depth view. especially if perhaps they are based overseas. However. I would also strongly recommend and urge you to come and view the car if you can. to make sure you are 100% satisfied for yourself. This is a 10 day listing over two weekends which gives any prospective buyer plenty of opportunity to come and view the car.
I have been around classic cars for over 30 years. restoring and racing them. I enjoy and specialise in British classic cars of the 60's & 70's in the main. Through my contacts I love unearthing good. well restored or highly original unmolested examples and then take great satisfaction passing them on to other enthusiasts. I have. I believe. built up over the years a good reputation for dealing with people in an honest and straightforward manner and I only ever deal in classic cars that I would be delighted to own for myself.
I am selling this Vitesse on behalf of a friend of mine who acquired it via me. from a local retired gentleman. My friend has since acquired a Triumph Stag and with not enough garaging for both cars. he has decided to sell the Vitesse so that another enthusiast can enjoy it.
This 2 Litre Vitesse is a great car with an overall excellent drive train. body and chassis. as can be seen in the pictures (which are current having been taken recently). I would describe it as. ‘home improved' as it has not required restoration but has been prepared and maintained by the previous owner to a good standard. The picture of the underside best demonstrates the strength of the chassis and cleanliness of the floors which are all solid and rust free. The engine bay is very neat and tidy and maintaining this Vitesse should therefore be a pleasure. With respects to the engine it starts easily and settles to a nice tick over. it runs very well without overheating and pulls well through the gears which all select easily and with no fuss. The stainless steel exhaust emits a very subtle and pleasing burble! The brakes too work well and pull the car up in a nice straight line when required. The only mechanical fault I am aware of is one manifold stud looks to have sheared off and needs replacing. The interior is lovely having been completely re-upholstered in a dark plum colour with a nice contrasting cream piping. The interior look is completed by the fitment of a set of lovely polished black Minilite type wheels which are shod with nearly new tyres. The Webasto roof works well. is water tight and provides a very nice open roof experience.
Whilst this Vitesse drives really well and overall it is very clean and tidy there is room for improvement on the cosmetic side of things I would say. The paintwork whilst more than presentable could. if the new owner wishes to be improved upon. It is a little ‘flat' and has the odd dink and blemish in it. Also the door gaps could be better but they do shut well and seal properly. The pictures give a true impression of its overall ‘kerb presence' but to some degree they are perhaps a little flattering and that's why I would recommend viewing if you can.
The Vitesse is ready to be used and enjoyed by the new owner and comes with a current red style V5. an original owners handbook. a Haynes workshop manual. its current MOT valid until 24th September 2014 and it its tax disc (exempt of charge) dated till 31st October 2014.
Please read these simple conditions of sale before bidding – Thank you and good luck if you decide to bid.
Conditions of Sale
As you can see I have a 100% history on ebay and I am a firm believer in doing business in an honest and straightforward manner. I have tried to give a truly reflective and in depth description but you must decide if this is the car for you. you are most welcome to view the car by arrangement. if you bid without viewing that's fine by me because I have done that in the past myself but you must also honour the deal and go through with it regardless on that basis. Please. if you are bidding from overseas take into account exchange rates. transport costs and any import tax you may be liable to pay before bidding.
The car will only be sold via ebay and I will let it run to the very end. so it will NOT be sold early at any price. I believe this gives everyone who has shown an interest in the car a clear and fair opportunity to bid and hopefully win the car. I have NOT advertised it elsewhere. If it helps I am able to deliver the car for a sensible fee. I have access to a trailer or I am quite happy to drive the car to you. I am happy to deal with overseas bidders and able to assist in transportation as long as cleared funds are in place. Any questions please feel free to ask via ebay.
If you have 10 or less feedback ratings would you please make contact via ebay to advise me of your intentions before bidding. I would like the winning bidder to at least contact me within 24 hours of the finish date to discuss payment and collection details. Cleared funds will be required before the vehicle is delivered or released. no Paypal payment due to their high charges. Payment and collection within seven days of the auction end. If you cannot meet this timescale please contact me before bidding.
For a bit of further peace of mind please see below an email I received from another happy customer on receiving his car in Australia. which he bought ‘blind' and I helped with the shipping. followed by some genuine feedback comments from other satisfied classic car buyers via ebay.
Hi Cameron. /span>
This morning i had my first look at the 504 Coupe. and i am extremely happy. and i could not be more thrilled about your honesty and integrity in describing the car.
The 504 is basically exacltly how you described it which is a credit to yourself. As you described. one or two small blemishes in the paint but on the whole a very very clean and immaculate car.
i'm still coming to grips with how unused the interior looks its just fantastic. im thrilled to bits over the car. very very happy. Once primed with fuel she started first piston up and ran like a swiss watch.
I wont be able to take delivery of the car for another few days because the quarantine inspection is not happening until tuesday morning.
so all in all cameron a very good result. thanks for all your assitance and help and most importantly allowing me the oppurtunity to purchase the car from england. im very very happy with the car. also i sincerely hope that you have now received the outstanding amount. please if you could confirm for me whether or not you have received it yet. it should have been there days ago now.
