1965 Triumph Spitfire Mark I

1965 Triumph Spitfire Mark I

For a human being, 53 years is a good amount of time, but to an automobile it’s an eternity! The ravages of time aren’t just from nature. Tastes change, trends die, and once-envied designs have a way of looking absurd. Once in a while though, an automobile endures despite all this, and ultimately, becomes a classic. That car is 1965 Triumph Spitfire Mark 1!!!


The Triumph Spitfire is a small British two-seat sports car, introduced at the London Motor Show in 1962. The vehicle was based on a design produced for Standard-Triumph in 1957 by Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti. The platform for the car was largely based upon the chassis, engine, and running gear of the Triumph Herald saloon, but shortened and minus the Herald's outrigger sections, and was manufactured at the Standard-Triumph works at Canley, in Coventry.

Spitfire 4 or also known as Mark I was produced from October of 1962 (as 1963 Model) to December of 1964 (1965 Model).



About the Car:


Up for sale is legendary 1965 Triumph Spitfire Mark I. It is late production 1964 Mark I that was titled as the 1965 model. The MK I's and MK II's are the rarest of the Spitfire range and that makes this Spitfire even more special.

This Triumph was in the same family since the early 70’s… Gentleman that owned it was a British car aficionado, and owned a nice collection of Bentley’s, Rolls Royce’s, Jaguars, and other fine British automobiles…. After he acquired this Triumph it was fully restored and painted according to his daughter’s desires and given to her as a high school present. She drove it until she graduated in 1985 and moved away to College.

Once he got it back from his Daughter, he parked it as he wanted to return it back to its Original and stunning color combination of Black Exterior and Matador Red Interior. Car was parked, and some interior bits were removed so the car can start its transformation back to its original colors, and then life happened!! It was parked into storage with few other cars that were also in the process of being reconditioned and slowly forgotten for over 30 years!! Good storage and warm Florida climate preserved this Triumph! Attached is the picture of how we found it, covered in decades of dust!

This Triumph is all complete and it makes a perfect candidate for completing the task that was started decades ago! Original body is very straight, as well as the original and unmolested undercarriage!

It rolls and steers with ease, and engine is free, and it turns.

Interior is complete as well, and in remarkably preserved condition (especially after being stored for 30+ years)
