The Nation’s Trusted Consignment Dealer, Many Locations Nationwide 1972 Triumph Spitfire Stock: 1289-TPA Engine Size: 1.3 Liter Transmission Type: 4 Speed Manual Exterior Color Red Interior Color Black Miles: 5,055 (Unknown) Location: Tampa, FL Vehicle Options AM/FM Radio Build Receipts Defrost Front Disc Brakes Heat Maintenance Records Manual Convertible Top Seatbelts Vinyl Interior Description A 1973 Triumph Spitfire like this is all about providing the lightweight classic open-top sports car sensation that other classics do. But the money you save on this economical machine keeps the smile on your face a bit wider.
In fact, it's hard not to smile just looking at this Spitfire. It was resorted during its lifetime so that its Italian-inspired styling really shines through on this British sports car. The long hood (bonnet) emphasizes the tall headlights. And this line runs 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. And it concludes at the flat rear end that was shared with larger Triumphs like the Stag. You wouldn't be able to appreciate all of this if the panels didn't line up so nicely like they so on this example. Plus, these Mark IV Spitfires has some of the best brightwork of the series. The front bumper draws attention to the sporty point of the front end, delicate trim highlights the sleek rear trunk line, and the addition of polished Mag wheels is always a nice classic touch.
Black interiors always look great against a bright red like this. Plus, there has been a recent investment here to keep it looking its deepest and darkest. This is the kind of interior designed to fit you like a glove with the high-back bucket seats, a gearshift perfectly placed for our right hand, and a grippy three-spoke steering wheel for your left one. Plus, we all love watching the classic Jaeger speedometer and tachometer dance as it enhances the wind-in-your-hair experience. But any time you want a more enclosed experience, the tight fitting black folding roof and full roll-up windows will keep you secure.
You'll always draw a crowd just by tilting the whole front end on the car forward to reveal the motor. The 1.3-liter in the Spitfire is certainly small, but there's much more to this story. This lightweight powerplant has been upgraded with a Weber carb and it has been recently rebuilt. So this is little Spitfire can confidently get aggressive without losing its sprightly charm. 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 a lightweight metal partial unibody. This gave them a solid 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 sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance records, so this is an iconic British roadster that has been cared for correctly. And when you can pick it up for such a nice price, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
