The Triumph Spitfire was a little sportscar built for a long time (1962-1980) on Triumph Herald sedan chassis and powered by a small 4-cylinder engine. A few have been given an upgrade in power from the inline-6 that was in the GT6 coupe, and that is a nice upgrade…but if you really want the little Triumph to spit fire, then you need a 215 cubic inch Buick/Rover alloy V8 mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Find this 1970 Triumph Spitfire offered for $10,000 in Granada Hills, CA via craigslist.
