Description

This auction is for my 1975 Triumph Spitfire 1500. The car has a clear title in my name and is registered in Pennsylvania with antique license plates. You will get the title to transfer out of my name and into yours. I would like to see the car moved by Thanksgiving weekend of this year, but it doesn't have to be if you make other arrangements with me. Buyer is responsible for removal and shipping/hauling of the car. I have more pictures if you need to see more or something specific. Car is available for viewing before bidding ends. The car is not in any condition to be driven home even for a short distance. Actual mileage of either car is unknown - the 99999 was only because Ebay wants a number.
The 1975 red Triumph Spitfire was purchased by me back in the mid 90's - I drove it as much as possible up until the summer of 2006. This car made several long trips during that time period - Boston area x 3, Erie, New Jersey shore x 2, and more. I would drive it to work when I could, which in it self is a 100 mile round trip. This car has PA Antique plates, which will go with the car if you wish. The car was purchased in the Williamsport area. Supposedly it was a wedding gift to the young couple I had purchased it from - they were moving to Portland OR and felt they couldn't take the car. The car had been 'restored' by the bride's father - not really restored, more like repaired and repainted. The car was originally white with a tan interior. Engine is a strong runner, it never let me down at any time. In 2005, I stopped driving the car because the hydraulic slave cylinder for the clutch went bad. The car was parked in the barn with intentions of repairing it. In the mean time, I had bought several other Spitfires (I recently had as many as 8 different models) and so the work never was performed. I am currently driving a 1980 Spitfire. I've started the car on several occasions but it is in need of a rebuild or restoration. The car is still pretty much the same as when I purchased it other than parts that wear or were needed to pass inspection. Anything major otherwise was done by the previous owner, so what you see in the pictures is what you get. It has been left outside since spring of this year along a country lane and under a tree, hence the black dirty top coat. The paint is bad but no holes or soft spots; I don't know if the PO put any putty anywhere, none to my knowledge. The top was new in 2001 and I think the brake master cylinder and radio antenna were replaced about then too. I can't tell you too much more about the car or condition - I am not a mechanic and don't pretend to be one in any sense. Anyway, I recently decided all these projects that I have, I will never get to and it is better to let them go to someone else. The auction is for everything you see in the pictures - I will even throw in an a new transmission tunnel cover and a repair manual. Make me an offer - you never know what I would be willing to accept.
