1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500 1.5 from UK and Ireland
A Mechano kit for adults
All the above easily and cheaply rectified (apart from rust which can be slowed by preventative measures, but is eventually terminal. Keeping it in a garage would be best).
Excellent engine bay access and parts availability make it a great car to tinker and play with.
Handling is fun but in no way good. Wouldn't fancy using it every day though. Long journeys on fast roads are very tedious. Good fun for the aspiring classic owner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
