Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a cosmetically freshened 1973 Triumph Spitfire 1500 that has been a rust-free California and Arizona car since new.  This fun and proper sports car has enjoyed 95,000 original miles. This motorcar was purchased new in Southern California and lived half its life in Arizona.  It was stored for the past 15 years before being restored and re-commissioned over the past year by the present owner.

This car has recently benefitted from a correct new Mimosa Yellow paint, interior and convertible top in the correct and original factory colors.  The quality of the work is very good for car shows but this is not a concours winner.  It is a very nice car to enjoy for daily or weekend use or for the occasional touring and car show exhibitions.

The 1,493cc engine is strict on fuel but generous on power.  Developing 71 HP at 5,500 RPM, the car was quite capable of exceeding 100 mph!  All while offering the ability to move this 1,800 lbs (816 kg) motorcar to achieve terrific gas mileage.

This is a great running motorcar with rare full syncro-mesh four speed.  The rack-and-pinion steering is strong and confident.  The cost when new was nearly $3,500!

Throughout its production life, many detail changes were made to the Spitfire 1500. The 1973 was one of the more desirable years since it still had the sleek and sexy chrome bumpers.

The 1500’s were considered the best of the Spitfire family.  This is a British classic that will appreciate in value every year. The car runs and drives as good as it looks, this car needs nothing except a new home. A great investment for a fast appreciating English sports car.  Of these, how many are low mileage rust free California cars?  This is an affordable and fun collector car!

The NADA value guide shows the high retail value at $9,575.  We are offering this motorcar at a huge savings.  See details online at: http://www.nadaguides.com/Classic-Cars/1973/Triumph/Spitfire/2-Door-Roadster/Values

Interesting Fact: The Triumph Spitfire was produced for 18 years from 1962 to 1980 and is a small two-seater British sports car, manufactured in Coventry, England. Introduced at the London Motor Show, the Spitfire was designed to compete with vehicles such as the Austin-Healey Sprite.   A trend of small sports cars was occurring around the world and the Spitfire managed to capitalize on that demand. During the course of its production, over 314,000 units were produced. Unlike other vehicles, the Triumph Spitfire seemed to get more popular over time, as its highest amount produced was during the final six years of its production.   The in-line four engine used on the Spitfire gave the car a top speed of 92 miles per hour and a 16.4 second 0 to 60 acceleration time. At the time of its launch, only a manual transmission was available, but an overdrive option was available. This powerful sports car became a classic instantly due to its popularity over the years!
