This restored Triumph is in very nice condition and has received numerous upgrades.
This 1970 Triumph is the last model year for the Mark 3 style.
It was built in November 1969. The original VIN tag is in its correct location inside the driver door opening. (There were only 65,320 Spitfire Mark 3's produced).
The Spitfire was originally Green (paint code 55) but was completely and correctly repainted Bright Red when restored.
The engine in this Mark 3 is NOT the original 1300cc.
The engine was replaced with a newer and upgraded 1500cc Engine.
The engine was completely rebuilt and is mated to the correct 4 speed manual transmission. The fuel system was upgraded to 2 dual carbs and are completely rebuilt and work like new. The gas tank is also new with a new sending unit and all new fuel lines.
All mechanical components have been replaced, rebuilt and/or upgraded.

The steering rack assembly is a new rebuilt replacement rack along with new tie rod ends and ball joints.
The brakes are all new. The front brakes are now upgraded with cross drilled and slotted rotors with stainless lines along with 2 new front brake calipers. The rear brakes are new and the parking brake assembly and cables all work correctly as they should.
The exhaust system has been slightly modified in the tail pipe location, with dual tailpipes instead of the factory correct single tailpipe.
The upgraded alloy wheels are brand new and have 4 new Michelin all season radial tires installed and balanced.
The sealed beam headlights are upgraded H4 lights (brighter and safer) and all lights including signal and marker lights work correctly.
The convertible top is brand new and has a new "zip out" rear plastic rear window. The metal frame is original and was properly repaired where needed before the new soft top was professionally installed.
The interior has the first year wood dash and the speedometer located to the center of the steering wheel.
