1979 Triumph Spitfire 1500

This was a frumpy looking non-operational primer covered car in an online estate type auction. I put in a maximum bid of $550 and forgot about it. I won it. There were a few nice surprises. It came with signed title and auction receipt. I took that ridiculously large socket and a pull handle and the engine turned. The engine already has a Webber updraft conversion and tube header. It is missing parts, no interior, and some rust of course but not so bad. Not a restoration candidate but thinking about making it look like an old road racer pulled out of a barn. Or maybe crafting a Lotus 7 like body. Looking forward to playing with my new toy.
