GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1980 Triumph Spitfire 1500 Roadster for purchase. With the introduction of the Austin Healey Sprite and the MG Midget, both rivals of Triumph, They designed a new low-priced sports car with the help of Italian car designer Giovanni Michelotti. So, with his help and a catchy name derived from the British fighter plane they had a new automobile that was cost effective to build but also buy. Our boys in blue fell in love with simple, British roadsters while being stationed in England and it's easy to determine why when being at the controls on a nice day.

This '80 Spitfire has been a California & Florida car until spring of 2014 when it was purchased and brought to Michigan. A lot of work has been done to bring the car up to high mechanical standard while the body was already in great shape. Right away you will notice the bumpers and grille are dressed to make the car appear like the Spitfire's before US government restrictions. The result is a beautiful looking example in French Blue. The car is mechanically sound with a lot of refreshment. The head was shaved to increase the compression ratio to 9:1. The increased compression along with the Weber 2 barrel carburettor and tubular headers make this Spitfire much quicker than most. It was was lowered for better handling. In this process the car has received a lot of new parts including: fan belt, radiator, battery, starter, solenoid, master cylinder, rotors, brake pads, shock absorbers, exhaust, and muffler. This car comes with a tonneau cover and a factory hard top. This is a lot of fun to drive! Please call or email for more details!
