Classic Car Overview

This 1977 Triumph Spitfire not only has a nice color combo, but also youre going to be impressed with whats under the hood. After all, there are known for their light weight and nimble handling. And this special one borrows the 2.0-liter inline six intended for its GT6 sibling. This may be British-built, the secret to why the Spitfire is so timelessly attractive this cars Italian designer. So up front you have tall headlights that create a stylish line that arches down the length of the car until it dips just past the doors. The sporty kick-up at the rear wheels is always a powerful presence. It concludes at the flat rear end that was shared with larger Triumphs like the Stag. Plus, the crisp white paint with a full black accenting package seems to have the formal look of fine Italian fashion. And more than just chic, the big power bulge in the middle of the hood is a nice reminder that there was another a meaner car closely related to this Spitfire. The red interior seems to revive the Italian-style passion. And theres even a nice practical side considering the Spitfire delivers features you dont get on every classic British machine, like a proper convertible top and roll-up windows. But what really makes this great is the way it connects with the driver. The position of the wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel and stick shift make this car feel like it was built around you. And we know youll love watching the large Smiths speedo and tach dance as you let the wind breeze through the car. This one really takes advantage of the full forward-tilting front end. Youll love showing off bright red block, shining valve covers, and an overall tidy setup. And in general, the engine bay will attract gawkers who never expect something this large with 50 percent more cylinders than the factory delivered. Because the GT6 was based on this roadster, the Spitfires pieces can fit with the right modifications to the GT6s frame. So Triumphs 2.0-liter inline-six sits under the hood like it always belonged there. Plus, it has the right pieces you want for a strong runner, including dual Stromberg carbs and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The motor fires up nicely and runs smoothly. When you get it out on the road, youll love the balance of the four-speed manual transmission and fully independent suspension. And front disc brakes and newer performance tires on Minilite wheels complete a terrific handling package. The sale comes complete with build receipts for this special Spit 6. Triumph would never make a convertible version of the GT6, but a lot of us wanted the Spitfires nimbleness in a more powerful package. So this custom build shows us a great what if that now goes home with the first person to grab this deal. Call today!!!
