1978 Triumph Spitfire Converible Description:

Up for auction is a 1978 Triumph Spitfire. This is a rare Factory overdrive car and they don't come up for sale very often.

The engine had a complete engine rebuild about 5k miles ago. I have no documentation of the rebuild but based on running condition and visual inspection I'd say it was done. Engine is drum tight with no fluid leaks I can see anywhere under the car ( Don't see / hear that very often on British cars of this year ).
Exterior:The car shows well in the photos and presents herself well in person but she should still be considered driver quality as not to disappoint at time of pick up / delivery.
