Description

I have over 139 photos. ebay would only let me upload 24. If you would like to message me I can send you the link for the rest of the photos. They include pictures of all the spare parts as well as the pistons. connecting rods etc. that i was going to use in the engine. I have a VIN Correct 1965 Triumph Spitfire. it has been a race car since the early 70's and was last raced in 1976. since then it's undergone a total restoration. This is perfect for the offseason to get ready for spring!I have had it for around 4 years. It has primarily been raced on the west coast. Have SCCA logbooks from all race history and parts purchased during that period. I recently acquired a TVR and made a deal with my wife to sell the Spitfire. So unfortunately I have to let her go. but all is not lost since I have my TVR. This car is basically ready to just be put together. I've gone through and put grade 8 bolts through all the suspension front/rear. My brother built a custom aluminum panel to go on the firewall for strength. I never got around to finishing the car since I had too many other projects going on. It has sat in storage and my fathers garage since I've owned it. The roll-cage has been built from the ground up by the prior owner who did a beautiful job. It may not meet certain requirements for specific racing leagues. but for SCCA Autocross it should be 100% legit which was my original intention. Have a fresh 1147 CC engine balanced and ready to be put together with all new parts. the prior owner was a mechanical engineer who has built parts for Carroll shelby. when I asked him if i needed to measure anything or if i could just toss it together. and he said everything is matched and numbered. just needs to be bolted together.
