1975 Triumph Spitfire

1975 Triumph Spitfire 1500 Convertible (Federal), starts, runs, and drives excellent.Older original restoration (1997).Seat padding and seat covers were replaced in 2012.
This is a clean, solid, garage kept Spitfire in the original color of Delph Blue. (Original color not original paint and believe it to be lacquer).
I was planning, although not needed for it perfectly fine the way it is, on doing a full frame off restoration for a winter project to have a new Spit for next spring to enjoy and keep but have since secured a lead on the only car that I like more than the Spitfire so I'm "changing gears".
These cars are fun, extremely easy to maintain and work on, all parts are readily available in used, new aftermarket and NOS.
30,738 miles but will be more for I'm still enjoying the car. I cannot confirm if they are original miles or miles since restore.
Some new parts installed, including new tires, brakes, heater control valve, radiator hoses, and speedo cable, there are a fewspare parts,a car cover, and a tonneau cover.
There are a few chips in the paint here and there, and a dime size surface rust bubble on the passenger front lower fender. There is a crack on the dash cover and there is a crack in the rear window of the convertible top but the entire top can be replaced for less than $350. (Then again, these cars are meant to go with the top down so....¯_(ツ)_/¯.....).If you need more information or would like specific photos please just let me know prior to bidding.If you are local, the car is registered, inspected and insured for you to fully check this car out. (FYI...my classic insurance coverage costs just $202 per year)
