Description:

1972 Triumph Spitfire

RELISTED due to no communication from previous buyer
Triumph Spitfire MKIV with the 1500 engineRuns very well, I recently drove pacific coast highway LA to Big Sur and back.Overdrive not working however.Mileage unknown but I have had the engine overhauled, see below. Car is CA Smog exempt due to ageThere's a lot of money's worth in theaccessories but Iwon't lie, the car would benefit from additional work.For someone who breaks down cars for parts, this would be a big money maker, a rebuilt engine itself is worth almost $3,000 now and the body panels are sought after. There's a very large Spitfire community
I'm Moving back to the UK at the end of this month so the car needs to go.I simply do not have the time for buyers that aren't serious so I am asking for an immediate deposit of $500. Full payment within 3 days.This is secure and the buyer is protected through ebay.
Shipping is to be arranged by the buyer at the earliest chance but I am willing to drive to you (within reason) and you can pay for my fuel and rent-a-car back.
Please contact me for any questions, a viewing etc. It is advertised elsewhere so it may sell.I am honest, I have a lot of good ebay feedback and I have priced the car for a quick sell.Parts are very easy to find at Mossmotors, British parts North West, Victoria British, Rimmer Bros etc.
INCLUDED WITH THE CAR:
  • Colour matched Hard top, (worth about $500)
  • Convertible top, (worth $600 new)
  • Roll bar, (worth about $500)
  • Setof 5 aluminium alloy wheels (need polishing up)
  • Bluetooth radio with subwoofer and 6x9 speakers
  • Upholstered seats (worth about $400)
ENGINE MODS:
  • 1500 engine
  • Webercarburetor (Mossmotors; $530 with intake manifold)
  • Canon intake manifold
  • Race exhaust manifold (about $200)
  • Straight through stainless exhaust pipe
  • New, largeraluminium radiator (2 new electric fans not installed - about $200)
  • Unleaded fuel conversion
  • New piston rings and cylinder honing
  • New big end bearings
  • Valves re-seated
  • New timing chain
  • New clutch and slave cylinder (all the above is worth a lot)
ISSUES:
  • Overdrivedoesn't work
  • Wiring all works but its very messy
  • Paint not in perfect condition, small chips here and there
  • Driver side window winds up and down but not smoothly
  • Windscreen looks like it may be original, it has a lot of sand pitting and should really be replaced (approx $200 for the parts - easily obtainable)
  • Overall, the car would benefit from some work.
Can be driven away but the extras, like one of the roofs and all the extra wheels will require an additional truck to carry them away, buyers responsibility.
