The legendary Triumph Spitfire was introduced at the London Motor Show in 1962. The vehicle was based on a design produced for Standard-Triumph in 1957 by Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti. The platform for the car was largely based upon the chassis, engine, and running gear of the Triumph Herald saloon, and was manufactured at the Standard-Triumph works at Canley, in Coventry. As was typical for cars of this era, the bodywork was fitted onto a separate structural chassis, but for the Spitfire, which was designed as an open top or convertible sports car from the outset, the ladder chassis was reinforced for additional rigidity by the use of structural components within the bodywork.
This wonderful Triumph Spitfire 1500 on offer today, has had just one private owner from new. Lovingly cherished , the vendor purchased the car from Triumph at their Hertfordshire dealership and has remained in his custody ever since . Finished in a stunning, period and original,
Saffron yellow- as one would expect, the paintwork is described to be in very good overall condition. Inside the car retains its original black trim. Last on the road in 2003 this car has been dry stored since by the vendor.
Having covered just over 8,000 miles from new, this one owner Triumph must be one of the lowest mileage examples in existence in an amazing time warp condition. Step back to the 1970’s!
