Selling my beloved Triumph Spitfire 1500. Owned and Garaged since 2010. Only driven on sunny days. never seen rain.

This is a very respectable well sorted example of a 1978 Spitty. It has a ton of new parts. listed below is everything I've done/upgraded or replaced.

Car runs real well. starts right up. and brakes exceptionally well. I use this car sporadically in the warm weather to just get into town. and maybe take a ride on a country road. its beautiful for that. and every where you go someone has something nice to say. or compliments the car. It shows real well in this capacity. but its NOT A SHOW CAR. Let me get this out of the way now so we don't waste each others time. The paint looks excellent. but it has some defects when you take a closer look. The seats have worn as shown in the pics. they are I believe original seats and the plain cloth material has started to tear off.

Includes the Tourneau cover shown.

Rust and Body info:

No Rust. even under the paint job. I don't see any issues. but Please take your own time and look at everything.
The Bottom underneath and around all wheel wells is exceptionally clean. inside trunk is real clean. Batter compartment is super clean. as is the Hood area and fender wells- exceptionally clean.
