1968 Triumph Spitfire 1968 TRIUMPH SPITFIRE MK3Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this very decent Spitfire MK3 for easy improvement. The MK3 is considered to be the most desirable of the bunch with it's higher horsepower 1300cc engine. This car was just purchased from the state of Indiana where it was stored for a long time indoors. The previous owner purchased the car and was in process of fitting new brakes to return it to the road, and indicated that the engine had been previously rebuilt.The bodywork on this car is very good. Panels open and shut well with good fit. There's no evidence of accidents anywhere. The passenger front footwell has had a repair panel installed. The driver's side needs some minor repair only under the seat area. The rest of the car looks excellent and rustfree with solid original rockers, trunk, doors, etc. The red paintwork is decent but older, and can be touched up around the rear for a driver. The car's original color appears to be Powder Blue which is a pretty color on these early cars.The car's interior still retains it's original vinyl seats in decent shape. The door panels also look decent. The soft top has shrunk up over the years and could use replacement. The interior would benefit from a carpet kit and cardboard tunnel cover. The windshield is the original Triplex in OK shape.Mechanically, the car has received new brakes as the owner was in process of getting it back on the road. We have driven the car and the engine and gearbox perform quite well out on the road. They both seem healthy and willing. There is an exhaust leak that could use a repair. It will need a minor service and easy tune-up, as well as a new tire set. One of the front wire wheels is worn and needs replacement.Overall, a scarce, desirable Spitfire MK3 for easy improvement. This solid, honest, running and driving car is a great candidate for cosmetic improvement and is a rising start in the affordable car market.
