Chris Horant's 1969 Triumph Spitfire
After viewing several catalogs from Vicky Brit and placing several orders, my restoration was finally completed in September of 2000. So here it is; My 1969 Spitfire MK III. The body was repaired obviously along with a rebuilt front end, steering tightened, brake system overhauled, interior cleaned (rebuilt or replaced as needed) and a paint color (even though it’s a ford color) that accents all the early spitty chrome and contrasts the black interior.
By the way the license plates are legally registered 1969 MD Plates. The looks and comments run the Gambit! “What is it?” “I had a Spitfire back when!” Are just a few. It’s neat to go to a Classic Car show and take a plaque or trophy over Chevelles, Novas, Mustangs and others just because it’s unusual – not necessarily rare.
