1976 Triumph Spitfire
The ultimate 1976 Spitfire 6. (how the factory should have built it)
I started with a rust free, accident free California car, that had only 42K miles and had been in storage since early 90s.The drive train was then replaced with a rebuiltGT6 engine increased to 2.5L and matched to a remanufacturedheavy duty transmission with J type overdrive. New 3 core radiator, GT6 suspension added with IRS suspension at the rear, vented brakes,window vents in the doors, Connelly leather interior.All rubber andchrome renewed,the car is essentially new.My dream car was built to be my last and final sports car, but health issues forces me to sell it after a 10 year build and only driving it 100 miles.
