Evolving through five guises over the course of an eighteen-year production run, the final Spitfire variant, the 1500, arrived in 1974. With a reputed 71bhp and 82lbft of torque on tap from its 1493cc OHV four-cylinder engine, the newcomer boasted genuine 100mph performance. Visually indistinguishable from its MKIV forebear save for some minor trim differences, the Spitfire 1500 was a decent seller on both sides of the Atlantic and the model remained in production until August 1980.
Manufactured in 1975, this example was supplied to the UK being first registered on the 2nd of April 1977. Fitted with the 1493cc straight-four engine mated to the four-speed manual gearbox, the Triumph is finished in Red with a Black vinyl interior. With a recorded mileage of 21,327 miles (at time of consignment), the Spitfire has been in current registered ownership since 1991 and is showing just four former keepers. Offered from a deceased estate as a restoration project or spares vehicle, ‘JRN 38N’ is offered with a V5 document and a rare Spitfire hard-top.
