1973 Triumph Spitfire Mk IV – $11,000

Jan 2021 | Classifinds, Sports Car Saturday

Produced from 1962 through 1980 across five updates, the Triumph Spitfire consistently served as the brand’s entry-level sports car while engineers and designers focused most of their efforts creating a series of other upmarket models.  Between the gorgeous updated leather interior and the incredibly detailed engine bay of this 1973 Spitfire currently listed here on Craigslist in Meadville, Pennsylvania, you would hardly think this car to be “entry-level.” The private seller relies on the excellent pictures provided to do the selling as their one-sentence description doesn’t detail all of the intricate work completed on this sports car.  This is hands-down the nicest Triumph Spitfire we have featured to date on GuysWithRides. The only fault we can find is the seller calling their Spitfire a “1500” when the 1973 vintage versions were still “Mk IV’s.” Perhaps this car has the latter car’s bigger 1500cc engine, but you’ll need to confirm that with the seller.  Currently offered at $11,000, the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms the ask falls nicely between this guide’s current #2 “Very Good” estimate of $9,350 and its #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $14,000.  If you are serious about buying this Spitfire, you can start the conversation by emailing the private seller.  When you connect, please remember to mention you saw their Triumph featured here on GuysWithRides.com. Good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s brief description:

“1973 Triumph Spitfire 1500. Runs and drives as it should, please see pictures and contact me if interested.”
