1976 Triumph Spitfire 1500 Description

I call it Cricket, due to its original color of Java Green. The previous owner plasti-coated the car to protect it during restoration. I bought it to modernize and restore.
The engine runs (will try to upload video). The body has no dents, no cancer. It of course has minor surface rust in floor pans and major in trunk. The Hardtop has a few minor dings. I have a new wire harness, clutch and break cylinder boots. Tires and wheels are in great shape. Dashboard is removed, tacked in place.
New Starter, New Fuel Pump, New Fuel Spout. You also get the portable garage its in, air compressor, a few rust removal grinders, welder, Fiero rear-end, all parts ordering guides, shop manual, original ads. CLEAR TITLE.
I love this car, I just physically can't continue the restoration and due to recent heath issues I'm too broken to get in and out of her. :)
