Triumph Spitfire

Launched in 1962 and enjoying an almost 20-year long production run, Triumph’s smallest sportster was one of its best-sellers. Most useable of the lot are the later MkIV and 1500 models, though any Spitfire will be fun and enjoyable to own. As for restoration, you’ll find most parts you’re ever likely to need readily available from the likes of Moss Europe and Rimmer Bros.

As with so many classic sports cars, Spitfire values have been rising, although most spares remain competitively priced via Triumph specialists and clubs. If you’re bored with MGs, a Spitfire could be your ideal choice!
