Beautifully restored Triumph Vitesse Mk II

2 litre straight six with twin carburettors. with the later (TR5 type) improved cylinder head and manifolds. 4 speed manual with overdriveRotoflex suspensionTax ExemptMOT June 2014

Signal RedFull Length sunroofCarefully and lovingly restored (completed in 2012). with no expense spared. Matching numbers car with an extensive history file including BMIHT Certificate


A highly usable classic car with subtle (and reversible) upgrades but retaining all the charm of the original – polish it and bring it out for shows or use it every day!

We took this to Classic Le Mans and Goodwood Revival in 2012 and London-Brighton 2013 without missing a beat. and getting much positive attention.  It is used regularly when the weather is dry.

Owned by a Triumph enthusiast family (TSSC member) who've run Triumphs for 30 years (originally bought for eldest daughter who is just starting to drive – hence the top-to-toe rebuild)

Rebuild highlights:-

Body off restoration with photographic recordNew headlining. carpets and door trims. Nice condition wood trimRebuilt seats - no tears or marksNew clutch. propshaft and reconditioned gearbox and overdrive (by Canley Classics)Rebuilt rotoflex suspension with new rotoflex couplings bushes and dampersNew silicon coolant hoses (last much longer than reproduction rubber hoses). and radiator capNew heater valveSpin-off oil filter conversionNew fuel pipes. solid state electronic fuel pump. fuel and air filters and fuel pressure regulatorRebuilt and properly tuned carbsElectronic ignition. new sports ignition coil. distributor cap. rotor arm and HT leadsNew horns65 amp alternator conversionHalogen headlamp conversion with relaysNew column light stalkNew column overdrive stalkAudio amplifier and subs. mid and hf speakers. with modern radio ISO connectors (radio not included) and internal electronic aerial (subs hidden behind rear seat)New brake cylinders. friction linings all round (EBC Greenstuff) and braided brake hosesFive new. good quality wheels and tyresNew seatbelts (inertia reel in front and 3 point static in back)Sports single box stainless exhaust (nice 6-cylinder noise but not too raucous. and quiet inside)New ignition switch with full set of keys and spare setMany more photographs available.  (The last photo was taken before the radio panel - with oil pressure gauge and clock - speakers and leather steering wheel cover were fitted)

Classic Triumphs are steadily increasing in value and the Vitesse has it all - style. nbsp;practicality. a great sound. good parts and club support. reasonable economy (nearly 40mpg on the London-Brighton this weekend) and good performance.  We'll be sorry to see it go!

from John, dated 09 january 2020
Hello, I am interested in the vehicle. Could you send any additional photos to my email, in particular, any of the engine. Is there any rust? and do the back seats have seat belts?
Thank you for your time.
Regards
