    [QLD] 1964 triumph spitfire

    hey guys thinking about moving this on but unsure of how to price it- have put a lot of work into making it a bit more custom
    1964 triumph spitfire
    2.7L PI motor, bored out using mazda pistons, about 10,000km since rebuild
    triumph 4 speed manual with electronic overdrive
    r200 diff conversion
    bonnet and rear quarter fenders deseamed
    bumpers deleted (front bonnet hinges remade to be internal)
    rewired using EH holden harness
    battery relocated to boot
    brakes upgraded off a lancia coupe
    suspension upgraded also (unsure what was involved for this)
    new bushings
    chassis and body were all refurbished from the ground up- probably the only triumph with genuinely no rust
    has soft top etc
    fuel tank refurbished and baffled

    i think what's left is fuel pump and hoses
    assembling interior bits
    would be a good idea to find a roll bar for it, the whole time i drove it the highest point was my head
    has an old wolf ecu but would probably try and get a cheap haltech or something and retune
    probably some other niggly bits to do like radiator (i have one here but it will need repair)
    fit transmission tunnel (it is made up and ready but not fitted)
    some other niggly bits i've forgotten

    as it sits now:





    how it used to sit prior to rebuild



    chassis rebuilt




    body rebuilt from scratch






    deseamed




    battery box replaced




    kind of hard to put a price on it so any ideas appreciated.. or if anyone knows someone interested in one?
    judging by carsales prices range from 10-25k but most are shitty 4 cylinders..

    Haven't you had this thing since you were nothing but a gleam in your dad's eye?
    Unfinished projects are a shit to price, but I'd say 15-20k would be a ballpark figure, certainly I would be seriously looking at it if I had somewhere to work on it.
