1975 Triumph Spitfire

British Sports Car Fans

If you're thinking about a Triumph Spitfire for your next adventure look no more. For the last 40 years, I've been a British sports fanatic having owned pretty much everything produced since 1950's. My passion has always been to find a car in original and overall excellent shape and restore it to excellence.

I purchased this beautiful 1975 Spitfire and for the next 3 months every square inch was reviewed and combed through by a Master mechanic and detail expert. My goal was to upgrade all the things this car needed to make it a true roadworthy and comfortable car in the 21st century without taking away it's simple nuanced beauty and simplicity and ensure every ounce of horsepower was found with the dual SU carbs, electronic ignition, free flow Triumph headers and custom exhaust and an upgraded cooling system.

This car hums down the road with its awesome throaty exhaust notes and pulls through the corners on a dime with power to spare.

All mechanicals were reviewed and tested with the following upgrades:

  • Engine and transmission removed and clutch plate, throwout bearings replaced, transmission inspected, all seals replaced.
  • All joints, seals replaced

    This Triumph Spitfire has 48,000 original miles which mean it has been a hardly used treasure since its purchase. For the past 4 years, it has been stored in my climate controlled garage under cover and protected. I drive it only in summer and this car has never seen a drop of rain hit its roof.

    The paint, body, mechanics, interior, trunk, tires, everything is both pristine and mechanically excellent.

    Additionally, this Spitfire has a much sought after electric overdrive which has been inspected and works flawlessly. Which means this little sports car flies down the Interstate with its overdrive at 70 mph. Power to spare all day long.

    The upgraded cooling system is outstanding and works amazing. This Spitfire is ready to show, turns heads everywhere we go and is just a joy to own and drive. Dependable, fully vetted and requires absolutely nothing.

    My wife informed me after everything was completed I spent a total of $26,000 in my upgrades. I fully understand my upgrades will be enjoyed for years by the next caretaker of this sweet little beauty and will not need to spend another penny.

    If you have any questions please feel free to send your questions via eBay. If you are in the area I would be happy to show it in person and a test drive.
