1972 Triumph Spitfire MkIV

SOLD £3,640

Recently recommissioned; driven 50+miles to the sale; lightweight fibreglass bonnet; budget fun to use and improve; £800 spent in last few years

This tidy little Spitfire was first registered in September 1972 and has enjoyed 11 keepers according to its V5C. It came into the hands of the vendor earlier this year, having sat idle for some time.

There are bills on file where work has taken place, specifically in 2013 when the suspension was overhauled, a new hood was fitted along with a new exhaust.

It had a new fuel pump in 2018 and its current owner has carefully recommissioned it for the road since acquisition at the start of this year as a lockdown project.

The car was driven to us some 50+ miles and is both presentable and usable - although we notice the clutch could do with bleeding since its arrival on-site.

The chassis looks solid, the bodywork and paint serviceable and it has had a fibreglass front end fitted - being significantly lighter than the original and entirely rust-free.

For someone looking for a great budget classic to use and improve...look no further.
