Description 1972 Triumph Spitfire (1500) Award-winning restoration.

1972 Triumph Spitfire (1500) - Chassis up Rebuild with every possible upgrade!!
Professional, detailed body-off-chassis restoration to Concours exhibition standard - with particularly impressive engine bay. Includes many desirable upgrades.
The previous engineer/owner purchased a 1979 Spitfire 1500 13 years ago which he completely stripped down and made a mint body tub by renewing every panel. The engine topend was rebuilt with new cylinder head, all new gaskets and everything need to make it run on unleaded fuel.
More recently he purchased a low mileage (43,000) 1972 Spitfire with an absolutely superb original chassis, which had never been welded and he set about using this and a lot of other structural parts along with the new body tub to create one beauty of a Spit.
The gapping of the doors, boot and bonnet took one week alone and are now as good as you are ever going to get. He even got rid of the gap at the corner of the bonnet to sill. As you can see from the pics she sits perfectly on the road being ever so slightly lowered with with uprated springs and shocks all round.
Brief Specification:-
New panels and sills.
Overhauled later model 1500 engine with complete new unleaded cyl head.
Slightly lowered suspension with up-rated springs and shocks all round.
