eBay watch: 1969 Triumph Spitfire Mk III

Spitfire

Looking for a vintage sports car you can just drive away and upgrade in our own time? This 1969 Triumph Spitfire Mk III could fit the bill.


Based on the images, it already looks the part and is described as being in 'good mechanical order', with an MOT until November 2011 and of course, being of an age, is tax-exempt too.

Plenty of upgrades already been done – see the listing for everything that has been replaced. But the seller also points out that some bodywork and cosmetics need sorting out, which is where the 'project' aspect comes in. £1,100 is the current price for what could be the ideal car for taking out for a spin next summer.

  • The GT6 car also listed above is also a great buy. Garage stored and unused, much of it’s original parts are in very good condition.
    Only 13,000 cars were ever made, and were originally designed as track cars. The GT6 has a 2LTR 6 cylinder engine that far exceeds the 1.3 LTR Spitfire, and has upgraded suspension and brakes. The GT6 also tend to suffer from less rust problems than the spitfires, and this car is also protected by an anti rust product.
    Being a hardtop car can be driven all year round. This GT6 has also been converted to take unleaded fuel.
