To counter the Austin-Healey Sprite budget sports from their then arch rivals BMC, Triumph rushed out the Spitfire, which was an open 2-seater version of the Herald saloon, employing the same 1147cc engine, chassis and swing-axle rear suspension. Styled by Michelotti, Spitfire Mk’s I to V were made 1962 to 1980. Pitched against the MGB GT, a 1998cc 6-cylinder Vitesse engined Spitfire with fixed head fastback coupe body, the GT6 MkI, was offered 1966-1968. The 1968-1970 GT6 MkII had improved rear suspension and higher MkIII Spitfire bumpers, whilst the improved 1970-1973 GT6 MkIII with Spitfire MkIV styling ended the line. Once considered the ‘poor man’s E-Type Jaguar’, this gutsy Triumph GT is now very much sought after by collectors with values on the rise as a consequence.
First registered in February of 1970, ‘CYK 858H’ has been In current ownership since 2008. This particular example has been subject to the beginnings of restoration and conversion to a roadster special. Unfinished due to a family bereavement, this vehicle now offers the opportunity to acquire a project for completion and comes accompanied with the V5 document and a number of boxes of spare parts.
