The Spitfire, a long-lived small British roadster, appeared in Triumph's catalogue in the early 1960s with a small, light and economical 4-cylinder engine.
The idea of the brand was to offer sport at a lower cost to a young clientele like the TR2 and TR3 range in the 1950s.
Based on the Herald, from which it took the chassis and mechanics, the small roadster named "Bomb" had disc brakes at the front and incorporated side windows, which allowed it to be differentiated from the MG and Austin Healey competition.
With a warm welcome at the 1962 London Motor Show, the Spitfire enjoyed a long career in both Europe and the USA where over 300,000 were sold until 1980.
The example we are presenting here was first registered in July 1980, so it is one of the very last roadsters sold.
In French configuration, it was recently repainted and now sports a green metallic livery combined with original black painted wheels for a more aggressive look.
The dashboard and upholstery are in good condition and the little 1500cc engine sings beautifully when you get up to speed. Behind the wheel, one immediately recognizes the qualities that this little car offers; offered on the market at a lower cost, it continues the tradition of its birth.
