Description for Triumph Spitfire 1965

Purchased as a hobby car a few years back and looking to sell now that I'm moving. The body is in great condition after undergoing a professional restoration to the body, including a new paint job.
Runs well since the day I bought it, the previous owner put in a GM alternator and switched the polarity to have the chassis be the negative ground. Original Triumphs have positive polarity on the chassis and as a result would tend to have electrical issues. Most the wiring has been replaced as well.
The original paint color was British racing green and we carefully selected a stock original royal blue that would have been available in 1965. The interior of the trunk and the bottom side of the bonnet were painted black when the car was restored.
The gauges are all original and being that they are mechanical, they aren't especially accurate, but do function.
