TRIUMPH SPITFIRE II

2-seater sports.

Main changes here are under-bonnet, with a hotter camshaft and 67bhp, which boost speed and acceleration. Has the diaphragm clutch of contemporary Heralds. Finish superior, with carpets and leathercloth covering odd bits of bare metal. Problems are chassis and body rust, and tyre wear if one over-indulges the famous U-turn.
