1977 Triumph Spitfire

Triumph Spitfire (1977)
for sale

Price: US $1,900.00


1977 Triumph Spitfire 1500. Driveable. Engine sounds fine. Some body rust. Purchased 3 years ago and stored in garage until Spring 2020 when I began work on it. Using all brand new parts, I replaced both front quarter valances using new hardware. Installed a manual choke conversion kit, a gas strut kit for the bonnet, an aluminum alloy valve cover with special gasket and sealant. New air cleaner, new oil filter and Amsoil Zrod 20W50 oil. I also treated and painted the front frame area and firewall for rust.
I quit workIng on the car and listed it for sale as is on when I discovered rust on the longitudinal frame members, fore and aft of the rear axels, was beyond my skill level to repair. The inner part of the longitudinal frame seems solid. We consider this car to be a project car for someone with experience with Triumph cars. It is drivable but not, in my opinion, road ready. If I had the room I would remove the body from the frame In order To properly assess the rusted areas on the frame. See the last 3 pictures.
New uninstalled parts include tie rod set (L & R), carburetor jet needle and adjusting tool, throttle cable, oil pressure gauge (electric), distributer points and condenser, 4 spark plugs, 160 degree thermostat with gasket, 2 side view mirrors.
The car came with Monza dual exhaust with headers. New hood but no frame. Serviceable Tonneau cover with rusted shut zipper. 2 service manuals.
In response to inquiries, we have added 3 photos. First photo shows the Jack on the rear cross member and the wheels are off the ground. the next photo shows the left frame extension aft of the rear cross member. Last photo shows the right frame extension aft of the rear cross member. These U shaped frame extensions do not have the inner frame member.
Questions welcome. Offers considered.
