Welcome to our new occasional blog series with the catchy title:

‘Classic cars that catch our eye that you should buy‘

Today, this classic car caught our eye…


What is it?

It’s a 1968 Triumph Spitfire that’s been sat at the bottom of someones garden since 1983.

Where did you find it?

For sale at on eBay, HERE

Why buy it?

With the fastback style hardtop it really is a looker, and being a barn find means it could go two ways… Either you’re about to snag a bargain, or it’s going to go for museum money.

How much is it?

Right now, at the time of writing, £99 with no bids and no reserve and a week left to run.

Is that a lot?

You can buy a good Spitfire for around £5,000, so this auction would have to end at a pretty low price to make the restoration worth the job. Who knows, that’s the fun of the online auction for you!

But can I fit Powerspark Electronic Ignition?

Yes, of course, we sell an electronic ignition kit suitable for many Triumph models

Although we don’t sell elbow grease, and it looks like you’ll need a bucket or two of that…

Was this whole blog post just a cunning way to show readers that Powerspark sell a wide range of products?

Yes. And an excuse to look at cars on eBay…
