Triumph Spitfire 1500

With styling by Michelotti the Spitfire was a handsome and entertaining sports car in the best British tradition. It was fun to drive even if the swing axle rear suspension made handling a mite tricky, but this was a good value way to experience open-top motoring, and remains a cost-effective classic today. The 1500 got 71bhp and genuine 100mph ability but rust is the main concern as you might expect. The Spit is fairly easy to work on though with just about every part available.
