With all the recent attention given to Alfa, Porsche, and Jaguar sports cars, you’d be excused for forgetting about some of the more accessible British sports cars, like the Triumph Spitfire. With five generations of Spitfire stretching over 18 years, there are plenty of flavors to choose from , starting with the slow and simple Spitfire 4 and finishing with the slow and complicated Spitfire 1500. The Spitfire Mark III is arguably one of the better renditions, retaining the more popular styling of the Mark I-III cars and gaining a proper folding top, a larger 1296cc engine with 8hp more (and presumably a bump in torque), though 7hp of this were lost to emissions regulations by 1969. The instrument panel was no longer center-mounted, moving to a traditional placement in front of the driver. Let’s take a look at this 1969 Triumph Spitfire for sale for $2500 in Yachats, OR.
