1979 Triumph Spitfire Additional Info:

I'm selling my baby. It is a 1979 Triumph Spitfire 1500. I have been tinkering and restoring since high school. I am now trying to study abroad this summer and instead of putting money into my car. I need to get some money for traveling. It is a fun little car, it drives like a go-kart and it always turns heads. I really wish I could've enjoyed it some more before letting it go. I have put so much time and money into this car I have lost track at this point. So let my loss be your gain. Since so much of the car is new it shouldn't give you any trouble with reliability. If you are handy with body work and paint, I know a guy who fully restores these and sells them for $15,000 so there is a possibility to make some money yourself, probably more than me since I am hoping to at least break even. Text, or email me if you're interested and would like to check it out.
