TRIUMPH VITESSE 1600

2-door saloon, convertible.

Back to pint-sized 'sixes', with twin-carb small-bore Vanugard engine; close-ratio 'box, front disc brakes, and those 'Chinese' quad headlamps. Overdrive optional and desirable: without it you're stuck with 22mpg. Reinforced chassis, but handling tricky. Sunroofs available on saloons March '63, rev counters standard from '64 models.
