1980 Triumph SpitfireSelling a 1980 Triumph Spitfire. Bought as a project and didn't have the time. Read on for full details. I have tried to be as complete and fair as possible in the description. This is not a car to jump in and drive, ut it is a great first project, ith a solid tub and good motor, nd parts are amazingly cheap. Details:
-Drivetrain: car runs, ut roughly. It has an aftermarket Weber DGV that could use a rebuild. Transmission is good - shifts smoothly through all four gears, nd reverse. I put in a new alternator, nd the battery and starter both look recently replaced. Rear differential weeps a bit, ut not severely. No whine from the back that I can detect. Exhaust system needs replacing.
-Brakes: I replaced the brakes on all four corners with new parts from Moss: new calipers, otors and pads up front, ew cylinders, hoes, prings and drums in back. Also replaced most of the lines (I have the rest but haven't put them in).
-interior: interior is tan cloth - it is rough and will need to be re-done.conv. top mechanicals in good shape, ut canvas was perished so I removed it.
-exterior: body is pretty straight without much rust, xcept the driver's floor pan, hich has a hole and needs replacing. Paint is faded and will need doing.
-other: I got halfway through a chrome bumper conversion on this car. I have both chrome bumpers but they are no on. Both are in decent shape, ut will need re chroming to be pristine.
-Also included: Haynes shop manual, aynes Weber carb manual, ew rebuild kit for the DGV carb, lus several oil filters (I had to custom-order them, o I got a bunch).
NOTE - Bill of sale only for this car. No title is required in CT for cars over 25 years old. Title status is listed as "clear" above because that was the closest option.
