Classic Car Overview

British, attractive, nimble, and well-maintained this 1974 Triumph Spitfire is everything you want at an affordable price. Youre looking at the best of Europe. Italian styling wrapped in a nimble British package and named after a famous WWII fighter plane. These final 1500-series Spitfires had arguably some of the best styling cues of the bunch with the flat rear end that was shared with larger Triumphs like the Stag. If this one seems particularly appealing to you, thats because its factory-correct French Blue paint received a professional refresh later in life. So not only do you have a nice sunny-day color, but it also has a hint of extra luster. Combine that with a nice shine on the bumpers, and you have an ideal droptop classic. Plus, the light blue makes for a nice contrast for the darker pieces, like bumper guards and black convertible roof. If you love the way the black roof looks against the blue paint, then youll love taking down the top to reveal the full black interior. The bucket seats, carpeting, and door panels all look like theyve received a proper investment, and so this is a nice place to spend some time. The wood paneling on the dash and proper Smits gauges gives you a great British sports car feeling. The three-spoke sports steering wheel is the perfect diameter, and your right hand just naturally rests on the gearstick. This will fit you like a glove, and make you want to play hooky on every sunny day. If the weather does turn gray and wet, then just raise the vinyl top with one hand. The final series of Spitfires received the largest motor of the bunch. The 1.5-liter four-cylinder shows all the right signs of being original to the car, and it looks terrific in the engine bay. This bright and tidy presentation is evidence of a well-respected classic, and the way this fires up readily reaffirms it. What makes the Spitfire special is how it balance power and weight. The car barely tipped the scales but had a level of rigidity not seen on other roadsters of its day. These were built on a solid backbone chassis with lightweight metal partial unibody. This gave them a firm but nimble feeling on the backroads, and it only got better when paired with the four-speed manual transmission, fully independent suspension, and front disc brakes. The classic British roadster experience doesnt get more affordable, and this example features the best of it all. So if you love to enjoy the open road, dont miss this Spitfire. Call today!!!
