1980 Triumph Spitfire 1500 Two Seater Sports Convertible
Chassis no. TFADW2AT000298
Engine no. FM119484HE
Introduced in 1975, the 1,500cc version was to be the final derivative of the popular Spitfire model which had been unveiled in Mark IV guise in 1962. The 1,493cc, four cylinder, overhead valve engine produced 71bhp at 5,500rpm and enjoyed the benefit of an all-synchromesh gearbox (with optional overdrive). The new model was capable of a genuine 100mph, although chassis, ride and road-holding were unchanged from its Mark VI predecessor. The Spitfire 1500 was to be the last of the separate chassis Triumphs, having outlived production of its Herald parent by a full decade.
This car would be one of the last off the line in 1980 and is presented in mustard yellow livery with black/white upholstery. It carries a spare wheel mounted on the rear luggage grid and appears to be to factory specification in all respects. The car is to left-hand drive specification. At the time of cataloguing the starter motor was removed and had not been located but it is hoped that the car will be running by the time of the sale. Following a period of museum display in Holland we advise careful recommissioning before use.
