The ideal combination of a classic British roadster, low costs, and importantly high fun.
The combination of Italian styling with robust British engineering was part of Triumph's philosophy for many years, and it proved to offer a winning combination. When the Triumph Spitfire was first released in 1962, not even the parent company would envisage its 18-year production run, appealing to those who admired its mechanical simplicity, engine accessibility and ease of DIY. Subsequent years have also offered an outstanding parts network and a loyal helpful owners club. Following the MK1 in 1965, the MKII offered a retuned engine and other mechanical improvements, while retaining the crisp styling of the original.
Imported into the UK in 2019, this 1966 MK II South African import has seen something of a charmed life, having been believed to have been owned by the South African chairman of the Triumph Sports Club, it was then handed over to an owner who entered the car in several concours competitions. Having seen extensive attention to its suspension, interior, engine as well as paint attention in its native country, the car has also benefited from a further respray as well as new weather gear earlier this year.
