Description for Triumph Spitfire 19650000

I have a VIN Correct 1965 Triumph Spitfire, t has been a race car since the early 70's and was last raced in 1976, ince then it's undergone a total restoration. This is perfect for someone getting started in racing.
I have had it for around 4 years. It has primarily been raced on the west coast. It does need someone to put it together which never scared me since most racers should build their own cars in myopinion. I want the car to go to a good home with an option for first buyback if they ever sell it.
Have SCCA logbooks from all race history and parts purchased during that period. I recently acquired a TVR and made a deal with my wife to sell the Spitfire. So unfortunately I have to let it go, ut all is not lost since I have my TVR.
This car is basically ready to just be put together. I've gone through and put grade 8 bolts through all the suspension front/rear. My brother built a custom aluminum panel to go on the firewall for strength. I never got around to finishing the car since I had too many other projects going on. It has been in covered storage and my fathers garage since I've owned it.
The roll-cage has been built from the ground up by the prior owner who did a beautiful job. It may not meet certain requirements for specific racing leagues, ut for SCCA Autocross it should be 100% legit which was my original intention.
  • Have a fresh 1147 CC engine balanced and ready to be put together with all new parts, he prior owner was a mechanical engineer who has built parts for Carroll shelby, hen I asked him if i needed to measure anything or if i could just toss it together, nd he said everything is matched and numbered, ust needs to be bolted together.
