Description

Italian styling house, Michelotti, was commissioned for this exciting new sportscar and came up with this swooping body as well as a single-piece front end which tilted forwards to offer unrivalled access to the engine. It was a huge success and four subsequent variants ensued, the latest of which was the Mk. IV, complete with a 1500cc engine, a top speed of 100mph and 0 to 60mph reached in 13.2 seconds. These are enormously popular, easy to work on and benefit from comprehensive club support.

This unique Triumph Spitfire 1500 was delivered in 1981 and has had just one private owner from new covering a mere 20,086 miles. It has been garaged all its life and was supplied by Triumph main dealer, Lathams of Leicester some 40 years ago. The originality of this delightful Spitfire is quite remarkable retaining its original Russet Brown paintwork, Hounds Tooth cloth interior, Triumph push button radio, original Uniroyal tyres and the original steel wheels that have never been repainted. The car was treated with 'Tuff-Kote Dinol' rust proofing when new which certainly worked preserving the car all these years, the original rust proof guarantee in the history file. There are visible signs of this treatment including the blanking grommets to the under bonnet, door shuts, front and rear valances and the total underside including the chassis, all of which is original. The history file includes the 'Supercover' original book pack and wallet including the 'Passbook To Service' owners handbook, all the supplying documents when the car was brand new including the original order form, the original bill of sale, Triumph brochure, parts catalogue, paint and trim colour leaflet, price list and workshop manual as well as a large collection of service bills, invoices and previous MoT test certificates all of which verify the incredible low mileage.

Also included are the original supplied dealer number plates and tax disc holder, tonneau cover, unused jack and wheel brace in their original bag and along with a set of spare keys that have never been used. Very rarely do you come across one owner low mileage vehicles and this one should certainly not be missed. Offered with a valid MoT test certificate and a UK registration document.
