 1971 Triumph Spitfire parts car. NO TITLE. Floors have been repaired by a previous owner over all though the body doesn't look bad. Frame looks to be solid. The suspension steering and brakes are all there. Has a gas tank and the factory chrome lid is in very good condition. The trunk lid has some rust on the bottom right corner and along the front edge. The top side looks OK but the under side edges are rusty. The doors are nice and the windows roll up and down nicely. The bonnet has some rust starting on the under side front edge. The engine starts and will idle but the carb needs cleaned I think to get it running strong. It runs very smooth. no strange noises. starts easily. Tranny is there and is not locked up. it can shift into 4 gears and reverse. The cars brake master cylinder has been removed so I have not "driven" it but I'm sure it will drive. All the other brake components are intact. has the brake pressure warning differential valve and a working parking brake. The radiator is good has antifreeze in it and no oil in the radiator nor water in the oil.

It has a factory exhaust on it which is quiet. The car comes with a nice set of correct high back seats no rips or tears and has the slides on them. It comes with the door panels but they are pretty much shot. Windshield is good as are both door glasses. The bumpers are OK chrome is not perfect. a few dings here and there on them. look decent from a distance. It has the factory hard top. the glass is out but it comes with the glass and two side window fuzzy seals. No soft top or frame. The car has a new electric fuel pump. new starter solinoid and battery. Starts with a key the ignition switch works. The turn signal stalk is broken. has one lever on it. on the right side. The clutch master cylinder has been rebuilt so I was told by the previous owner. Has a a clutch slave cylinder and a clutch that appears to work. has pressure and I see the clutch slave cylinder is moving. no idea as to condition of disk and pressure plate but the clutch pedal feels like it's a good clutch. Has gauges (correct vintage speedo. tach. gas & temp Jeagars I think) the gauges look decent not all rusted up.   The dash wiring is there as is the rear wiring. engine wiring and bonnet wiring. The wheels are in real nice condition but some of the beauty rings are dinged the tires are in VGC and all match ie same brand and same size.

I had to select salvage as a title choice but I bought the car with a bill of sale and will sell it with a bill of sale. as a parts car. The person I bought if from said his dad bought the car years ago in Alabama and at that time they did not do titles. ? I don't know about all that but that's what he told me and some states do that. it's a parts car so I didnt care if only had a bill of sale. This is a parts car being sold as is where is. No warranty expressed or implied. What you see is what you get. I guarantee this listing gives a correct representation of what the car is. if you are unclear as to what you are buying. again please ask questions or request pics so you can be happy with your purchase.

I can assist with loading. but it is the buyers task to arrange shipping or pickup. I may be able to deliver for a fee within like 150 miles of my location. Buyers are welcome and encouraged to come see the car just ask and we can make arrangements. I have tried to explain what the car is. and again it is a parts car. it runs and could be made to drive fairly easy IMO but it's really for the buyer that might need a drive train and other parts for their vintage Spitfire. If you have questions please ask before you bid. I reserve the right to end the auction early as the car is advertised locally. I will only end the auction should someone come buy it locally.
