for sale

Price: US $7,000.00


True survivor. This Spitfire is all original and even has the original shocks, owners manual, British Leyland bill of sale, drivetrain, paint, interior, convertible top, tonneau cover, suspension.
If you are a serious buyer please let me know and I can send you a video of the car running, etc...
Runs and drives perfect. Everything works, even the 8 track. Has never been driven in the rain. 100% original except the fuel pump was replaced with electric, and the hydraulic clutch piston and master cylinder were replaced. The brakes were rebuilt back in 1996 and work perfect.
The only issues I am aware of is the dash has a small crack in the middle. See photo. And it has a very slight leak under the rear. Also has a very small dent in the front bumper.
Wherever you see rust is surface. There are no rust issues. See the photos of the trunk and floor pans and inside an under the floors and wheel wells. You can see how its been kept dry, etc.. and original without any issues! Remember its a survivor and all original.
