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.
