1970 triumph spitfire with overdrive and header! restoration project!
this spitfire runs really well, and it drives down the road. it comes with overdrive, which does work, and the engine has a header on it.
i bought this car in 2006 and had it shipped from california. i hoped to restore it, but i now have 5 other spitfires that need my attention. i didn’t drive this spitfire very much, only around town a few times before i parked it in the barn. i got it out a couple months ago and it fired right up after i charged the battery. it did sit for about 6 years, only being started a few times.
the electrical system is not working properly. i tried fixing it, but couldn’t figure it out. none of the gauges work as a result, but when i first owned it, everything did work properly. the tail lights, turn signals, and high beams work. i’m sure someone who is more familiar with electrical systems can figure it out. the trunk lid that is on it is from another car, and you can see that the lip is rusted. the trunk handle isn’t attached in photos, but i do have the handle for it.
i do have the front bumper, and the soft top frame. there is no actual soft top. the front passenger floor is also rusted out, although there isn’t much rust on any other part of the car.
this is a restoration project, with a good running engine and hard to find working overdrive. please email with any specific questions you may have! it would be fun to keep because it runs so well, but i want it to go to someone who has the time to put into it. i have 2 frame off restos going on right now, so this one must go.
***the mileage is not really known on this vehicle***
