1976 Triumph Spitfire 1500 - Inca Yellow - Tax/MOT exempt! SOLD

Sold by RMC Classics
PLEASE SEE THIS LINK FOR MANY MORE PICTURES: - details above

There’s nothing better for a sunny afternoon than a convertible classic! That said, these little Spitfires are perfect for regular use in our lovely English climes, so it doesn’t necessarily have to be a good-weather sportscar.
This particular example was built in 1976, so is now of course MOT and Tax exempt! However, for peace of mind, the car comes with an MOT until 10th May 2019.

The car was in the hands of the previous owner for 12 years, and in that time covered just 2,500 miles! However it was MOT’d every year and always garaged. The car had a restoration in the early 2000s which included a full respray, along with chassis and bodywork restoration.

The car is in good all-round order, but at this price, it’s obviously not a concourse show car! That said, with a few hundred pounds spent on rejuvenating a few cosmetic areas, the car could be made really nice.
The car starts, runs, drives and stops nicely, with no oil pressure or overheating worries. Dunlop tyres are fitted all round, and have good tread – the spare is unused. The rear brakes have recently rebuilt, along with some front suspension work.

The Inca Yellow paintwork has a good shine and most of the bodywork is pretty good – there are a few areas which could do with a little bit of touching up etc but there’s not too much to worry about for now – you can just sort those out as and when you please. The colour is much brighter in reality than it is in my pictures! As usual with Spitfires, the panel gaps aren’t the best – particularly the bottom edge of the driver’s door. However, everything opens and closes nicely so there’s not too much to worry about really. The chassis and outriggers all look to be nice and solid. The body tub itself is also not bad at all – no great lumps of filler hiding horrors, or anything like that. The rear bumper is pitting and could do with replacement, but it does still shine well.

The hood is in pretty good shape, with no rips or tears, and the frame is in excellent order. Also included in the sale is a hood cover, along with a full-length tonneau cover. The interior is nice and original, and in nice order. The carpets have obviously been replaced at some point and are in great nick. The driver’s seat has a small tear in the vinyl but it’s very minor and I’m sure it could be repaired easily enough. The original steering wheel is fitted.
There is some paperwork which comes with the car, including old MOTs and bills for various works over the past 12 years. There’s also an original brochure, handbook and a few other bits and bobs!

I’m not completely sure of the mileage – the clock is showing 71,000 which could well be correct – it doesn’t really matter so much when cars get to this age, anyway!

All in all, it’s a nice car that’s ready to use and enjoy – and it’s a good investment, it certainly won’t lose any money. Obviously it’s not a concourse car, but for someone looking for a nice, solid starter classic, you can’t go wrong.
