HAMPSHIRE COUNTY CLASSICS  HCC ARE PLEASED TO PRESENT A LOVELY LITTLE TRIUMPH SPITFIRE IN LEFT HAND DRIVE . NO MOT OR TAX . THIS CAR HAS BEEN LAID UP IN A DRY GARAGE  FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS AND NOW NEEDS RECOMMISIONING AND A BIT OF FETTLING. IF IT DOSNT MAKE ITS MONEY WE WILL DO THE CAR OURSELVES AND THEN RETAIL IT FOR A PREMIUM PRICE . CHECK OUT THE PRICES OF GOOD LEFT HAND DRIVE EXAMPLES AND YOU WILL SEE THIS IS VERY VIABLE. WE'VE GIVEN THE  RED PAINTWORK A POLISH AND ITS SHINING WELL AGAIN. (IT ACTUALLY LEFT THE FACTORY IN BROWN WHICH PERSONALLY I LIKE BUT MANY SEEM TO BE CHANGED ) THERE ARE MARKS AND BLEMISHES UPON CLOSE INSPECTION BUT GENERALLY IT PRESENTS WELL . THE FRONT VALANCE AND THE HEADLIGHT RIMS ARE IN BLACK AS ARE THE BUMPERS. THE CAR WOULD BENEFIT FROM CHROME BUMPERS AND THE VALANCE/RIMS IN BODY COLOUR.  THE NEARSIDE CORNER OF THE FRONT VALANCE  IN FRONT OF THE WHEEL IS JUST BEGINNING TO SHOW THE BEGINNINGS OF CORROSION STILL SOLID BUT WANTS CATCHING ( VERY COMMON ON THESE CARS ) THE CAR HAS A METAL BOOT RACK THAT I WILL REFIT . AGAIN THIS IS IN BLACK PREDOMINATLY AND WOULD LOOK GREAT CHROMED . INTERIOR IS GOOD WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE CARPETS WHICH WOULD  WANT RENEWING AND THE DASHBOARD WHICH WILL NEED A RUBDOWN AND A RELAQUER . ITS FITTED WITH ORIGINAL SEATS IN LEATHER WHICH ARE IN GREAT SHAPE . BOOT AREA IS VERY SOLID WITH NO CORROSION EVIDENT ALTHOUGH IT WOULD BENEFIT FROM SOME TRIM PANELS WHICH ARE MISSING . ENGINE WISE THE CAR STARTS AND RUNS WELL AND GIVES A NICE NOTE FROM THE STAINLESS TWIN EXHAUST . THE CLUTCH PEDAL IS ON THE FLOOR AND THE RESERVOIR IS EMPTY SO WILL WANT A NEW SEAL OR CYLINDER EITHER MASTER/SLAVE . THE HOSES IN THE ENGINE BAY WILL ALSO WANT CHANGING AS THEYRE PERISHED THROUGH LACK OF USE AND DRYING OUT. AS WITH MOST SPITFIRES THE ENGINE BAY WILL BE ALL THE BETTER FROM TIDYING AND DETAILING . THE CAR HAS A HARD AND SOFT TOP. THE SOFT TOP IS IN GOOD ORDER AND LOOKS ORIGINAL. IT HAS A WINDOW THAT ZIPS DOWN IN THE SUMMER THE THREE WIDOWS ARE A LITTLE CLOUDY  BUT SOUND  THERE ISALSO A TONNEAU COVER FOR THE CAR . I HAVNT BEEN RIGHT UNDER THE CAR BUT IT ALL LOOKS GOOD AND TIDY AS FAR AS I CAN SEE  THERES GOING TO BE OTHER BITS TO DO BUT ESSENTIALLY THIS IS A VERY TIDY CAR THAT WANTS A GOOD GO OVER AND A LITTLE MONEY SPENT ON IT TO MAKE PERFECT. ITS PREVIOUS OWNER OF OVER 28  YEARS  WAS VERY ENTHUSTIAC ABOUT THE CAR AND ITS HAD A LOT SPENT ON IT OVER THE YEARS.  . NOT EASY TO FIND IN LEFT HAND DRIVE  AND WILL HAVE TO MAKE THE PRICE TO LEAVE US OTHERWISE WE WILL GET ONTO IT AND MAKE IT INTO THE CAR IT DESERVES TO BE .  LOVELY LITTLE CAR WITH GREAT POTENTIAL AND AN EASY PROJECT . IF YOU PUSH THE BUY IT NOW YOU WIL HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT OF £250. 00 NON REFUNDABLE VIA PAYPAL WITHIN TWO HOURS . IF YOU CANT OR DONT WANT TO DO THIS PLEASE DONT BUY. THE BALANCE SHOULD BE VIA BANK TRANSFER OR CASH UPON COLLECTION . OVERSEAS BIDDERS ARE  ALWAYS VERY WELCOME AND WE WILL DO WHAT WE CAN TO HELP YOU BUT PLEASE NOTE YOU WILL NEED TO ARRANGE YOUR TRANSPORTATION YOURSELF. COLLECTION WITHIN A WEEK PLEASE UNLESS ARRANGED OTHERWISE WITH MYSELF PRIOR TO PURCHASE . CALL ME ON 07876 616886 OR MAIL ME IF YOU NEED MORE INFO  . VEHICLE IS SOLD AS A PROJECT  WITH NO WARRANTY GIVEN OR IMPLIED . DVERTISED ELSEWHERE SO CAN BE REMOVED AT ANY TIME.
