1973 Triumph Spitfire, 1500, CA/AZ Car, SOLD!
1973 Triumph Spitfire, 1500, CA/AZ Car, FOR SALE!
This is a cosmetically freshened 1973 Triumph Spitfire 1500 that has been a rust-free California and Arizona car since new. This fun and proper sports car has enjoyed 95,000 original miles. This motorcar was purchased new in Southern California and lived half its life in Arizona. It was stored for the past 15 years before being restored and re-commissioned over the past year by the present owner.
This car has recently benefitted from a correct new Mimosa Yellow paint, interior and convertible top in the correct and original factory colors. The quality of the work is very good for car shows but this is not a concours winner. It is a very nice car to enjoy for daily or weekend use or for the occasional touring and car show exhibitions.
The 1,493cc engine is strict on fuel but generous on power. Developing 71 HP at 5,500 RPM, the car was quite capable of exceeding 100 mph! All while offering the ability to move this 1,800 lbs (816 kg) motorcar to achieve terrific gas mileage.
This is a great running motorcar with rare full syncro-mesh four speed. The rack-and-pinion steering is strong and confident. The cost when new was nearly $3,500!
Throughout its production life, many detail changes were made to the Spitfire 1500. The 1973 was one of the more desirable years since it still had the sleek and sexy chrome bumpers.
The 1500's were considered the best of the Spitfire family. This is a British classic that will appreciate in value every year. The car runs and drives as good as it looks, this car needs nothing except a new home. A great investment for a fast appreciating English sports car. Of these, how many are low mileage rust free California cars? This is an affordable and fun collector car!
The NADA value guide shows the high retail value at $9,575. We are offering this motorcar at a huge savings. See details online at: http://www.nadaguides.com/Classic-Cars/1973/Triumph/Spitfire/2-Door-Roadster/Values

TRIUMPH SPITFIRE 72 1300 MKIV built
This Spitfire runs, performs and handles perfectly.. So, I'm sharing a totally cool Triumph Spitfire that has a number two Street race cam in it to say the least. A side draft Weber jetted perfectly the whole car is timed perfectly and hauls butt and cruises totally bitchin.. If your a British Leyland car fanatic go ahead and e-mail me. I hope you enjoyed this it was comprised within some backstreets in Morro Bay, California, alongside one of the last estuaries along the coastline of California. I hope you have good audio and turn it up... Performance is everything..
Vintage Racing Crash Roll cages are good
This is Mark with Zapata in second place of the last race at Roebling Road. Listen close and you can hear his rear axle snap. At that point he can't do anything but hold on. Mark is fine. This is a good reason to over build safety into any racecar.
