Description for Triumph Spitfire 19700000

This is a rust free fully sorted 1970 Spitfire MK III. This little sports car has had recent major work making it as reliable and trouble free. Start every time, shifts perfectly and drives wonderfully. Brakes are tight and suspension is on point. Paint is still fresh and the interior is new as well as the top. Sporting new wheels and tires as well. Lovely car to cruise around with the top down and enjoy its sport exhaust note. Pics don't lie so ask any question you want! Chrome is perfect as is the luggage rack and all the door handles.
History from the Web on the MKIII
The Mk.III's final production year (1970) saw a set of exterior changes that included: Addition of an integrated reverse/plate illumination lamp assembly on the rear, addition of full side lamps at the front and rear and new badging.The separate "TRIUMPH" letters on the front of the bonnet were removed and "TRIUMPH" and "SPITFIRE" rectangular badges were used in the front, rear sides and rear. A limited number of U.S. market 1970's were adorned with an RAF style "SPITFIRE" badge (U.K. models had a plain badge without the RAF roundel) that rested in the right corner (car opposing point of view) of the bonnet. Additional exterior changes introduced included a zip up rear window, black radiator grille and a black (vs body colored) windshield surround. Full wheel covers of two styles were used including the 1969 introduced model with "SPITFIRE" circumscribing the hub and a unique derivative without the branding. Interior changes included a steering column mounted ignition switch, a key-in-ignition warning buzzer, driver's side under-dash courtesy lamp and a new black spoked steering wheel. Under the bonnet, some markets had the twin SU carburetors replaced with a single Zenith-Stromberg carburetor
This car is complete down to the jack and tire iron. Included are a bunch of spitfire seals and spare body gaskets.
