Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this stunning 1973 Triumph Spitfire Mk III. This car underwent a multi-year, photo-documented restoration by a well-regarded British car specialist in Wisconsin before being acquired by the Bruce Weiner Microcar Museum (as part of the non-microcar collection). Fully restored both mechanically and cosmetically to a concours standard, it's likely one of the finest GT6s available.
Finished in correct Mimosa Yellow, paint and body present as new (or better) as do bumpers, trim and glass. Immaculately clean under the hood and underneath as the car has essentially zero miles since the restoration. Interior is equally nice with an excellent original dash (with factory silk-screened labels still intact), new carpets and restored seats.
All drivetrain and suspension components have been replaced or restored, from the 2.0 liter inline six cylinder engine (fully rebuilt) to the clutch and gearbox to the rear axle and the brake system. Fitted with a four-speed manual with overdrive -- it has been terribly difficult for us NOT to drive this car given how clean and fresh it appears. Although the engine was test run and tuned when it was installed in the car, the fuel tank is currently empty -- this GT6 has lived in a climate-controlled museum as a show piece, but it would certainly be a fantastic car to drive as well.
Included with the sale are the original factory MSO, passport to service, complete maintenance and ownership history to new, tens of thousands in restoration receipts, plus the original sales order and a copy of the original 1973 title (the first owner kept this Triumph until 2000; the restorer acquired it the next year through an intermediary). This GT6 could not be restored for the asking price.
