For Sale: 1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500

item is sold

This is my beautiful 1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500. I love everything about my convertible Spit (especially the color, the rare Pageant Blue). It’s really hard to sell but I have to make room for another car and unfortunately there is no other way (I live in downtown and I don’t have a double garage).
