1979 Triumph Spitfire -

Metallic White over Tan Interior - 1499cc Inline 4 - 4 Speed Manual Transmission

(Please note: If you happen to be viewing this vehicle on a website other than our main website, it's possible that only some of our many photographs of this car are presented due to website limitations. To be sure you access all the photographs, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.)

Light, responsive, open-air, sports-car motoring is something of a British tradition. And when you add "economical" to that list, no marque better exemplifies it all than the Triumph Spitfire. Sharing its moniker with the legendary World War II fighter, Triumph began producing this Italian-designed two-seat roadster in 1962. Across the next 18 years, over 300,000 Spitfires were built in five productions series: I, II, III, IV and (abandoning Roman numerals) the 1500. The 1500s received the largest engine with significant increases in torque, while retaining the important suspension refinements introduced in the Mark IV series.

This car's exterior, with its sharp white paint, tan interior and black fabric top, 13-inch steel wheels, and excellent brightwork boasts an appealing combination. Its interior features wood surrounding the Smith's instruments and glove box, wood shifter knob displaying the 4-speed shift pattern, bucket seats that have a very retro pattern in the centers, vintage Audiovox radio, and tonneau cover. The car's data plates are intact and legible.

The Spitfire is a small but mighty little car that is fun to drive. This car which has been repainted in a pearl metallic white that accentuates the lines and curves of the body just a bit more than a standard white. Open the forward canting hood, and you're greeted with a nicely detailed engine bay with the 1491cc Inline-4 as the centerpiece. Capped with an orange valve cover, the engine also features a Stromberg carburetor.

The timeless British appeal of the Spitfire model in all likelihood means this car's next owner-who may well be reading this description right now-will have evaluated a number of lesser Spitfires on the market, and concluded: This is the one. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
