Vehicle Specs

1978 Triumph Spitfore 1500 Cabriolet. Only 77,422 original miles and the motor was rebuilt around 70,000 miles in 2016 with receipts included. This car is extremely solid, no rust. Always garage kept. Nothing missing on car. Everything is working. Mostly Original Paint and decal. The top of the hood appears to be repainted a long time ago and the side decals are old and cracking but overall looks great! The convertible top shows signs of age and could be replaced ( See Photos ).

If you go on the Internet and read the reviews, it is always mentioned that these are one of the most fun classic cars to drive and hit 100 mph and cruise at 85 mph all day long. The Triumph Spitfire is an iconic British sports car and ironically is named after a very famous British WWII fighter aircraft.

This car is in great condition in a beautiful color. The interior is also highly presentable. These later Spitfires with the non-bug headlights are really slick looking. These cars are known to eat up any winding road and get fantastic gas mileage while they are doing it. I can think of no other classic sports car with such attractive lines, that is in great condition and can cruise over 85 mph all day long and probably top 100 mph that can be bought at such an attractive price.
