1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500cc For Sale

1978 Triumph Spitfire 1500cc in yellow, genuine garage find, has been dry stored for the past 13 years.
Bodywork is in good condition with no rust showing and still nice paint work with plenty of shine, underneath looks solid with no rusty holes showing.
Interior is in useable condition, could do with a little tidying up to make perfect but this is a genuine honest spitfire with lots of potential.
Engine runs well start first time but would recommend a tune up just from being sat for a length of time, 69566 miles showing on dash, believe this to be genuine mileage, last MOT done was 03/ 2008 @ 69461 miles.
She does run and drive but does require a bit of work, I suspect the slave cylinder has failed or the clutch is seized to the flywheel as clutch isn’t working, can be started in gear to drive but would need trailering away. Viewings welcome, sold as seen and cash on collection any questions please ask.
