Success Story: 1975 Triumph Spitfire

A few weeks back, we featured Tom’s sweet little Spitfire as an Exclusive. Well, we just heard from him and its new owner picked it up last night! Here is what we heard from him. From Tom – Thank you everyone at Barn Finds for listing my car and the nice write up. The car just sold last night. Unfortunately I couldn’t get any pictures as the buyer came to get the car late last night. I will absolutely sell another car/recommend someone sell a car on this site. 

While we would love to have seen it heading off into the sunset with its new owner, we are just glad to have helped find a good home for it! We want to extend Tom our personal thanks for giving us the opportunity to list his car. Hopefully, the new owner will contact us and keep us posted! And if you have a classic car sitting in your garage, barn or shed that needs a new home, please consider listing it here on Barn Finds.

    But that brown though…

      …was popular in the period and looks fine on this car.

    I was in college in the late ’60’s and a friend had a spit. Always wondered why the rear wheels splayed out, but, otherwise, admired that car! Of course I lusted after the Fiat 850 Sport too, so not sure I had the best taste. But I certainly would have taken anything in brown back then – just not today.

    Historically, when black cars dominate the market, brown eases in and makes a 6 or 8 year cycle run. Follows fashion. So you are seeing many suited-up guys wearing brown shoes with black pants. Brown is on cycle now in the new car market (Ford, Nissan, Honda, MB, etc.) Looks nice on the Spitfire and many 70’s sports and muscle cars.

      In the words of Frank Zappa…..”Brown shoes don’t make it”
