Evaluation: Represented as an older body-on restoration with new carburetors, new wheels and tires, and fresh paint. Chrome looks good. So does the paint, and this is a great color, but there are some cracks near the headlights and a few masking imperfections. Clean carpets and upgraded seats but the dash, gauges, and steering wheel are original and look tired. Restored and lightly used underneath. New top on an unrestored top frame. Corners were cut, but that’s fair on budget classics like a Mk II Spitfire. This is a lovely car.
Bottom Line: It could be lovelier, especially at this price, but even though this is top of the market for a Mk III Spitfire, it’s hard to argue with the result when there are so few handsome, fun, usable classic cars that can still be had in this price range.
