Motodrome offer for sale this recently-rebuilt 1969 Triumph Vitesse Mark 2 Convertible, finished in it’s original colour scheme of Valencia Blue with rare tan interior – most were black.
This is a genuine matching-numbers convertible, not a conversion from a saloon, and retains it’s original engine, albeit freshly rebuilt – it’s covered no more than 100 miles.
The restoration included separation of the body from the chassis, which had new outriggers etc fitted, all new brakes and suspension etc, new tyres, rebuilt engine with new clutch, new hood, new panelwork, and a full respray in the original colour.
MILEAGE, HISTORY ETC
The interior is pretty much original (with the exception of the carpets) and may bear out the odometer reading of just 22000 miles from new, Whilst we can’t warrant this, the interior condition together with previous owner correspondence in the extensive history file would suggest it may be genuine. .
History wise we have the Heritage Certificate, a full set of photos depicting the restoration, a massive sheaf of bills, previous owner correspondence, and a couple of old owners club magazine features showing the car derelict, but touching on it’s early bonnet badging arrangement which again is apparently rather rare.
V5 only shows 3 previous keepers although as the system was updated in 1977, owners prior to that aren’t shown, and looking at the file, I think it’s had 5 previous registered keepers.
One point to note is that, given it’s been off the road for probably 30 years up until it was restored in 2020, nobody has ever bothered to change the tax class with DVLA for historic road tax. We could get it changed before sale but this would mean us appearing another keeper on the V5, which I’m loathe to do as they’re so few keepers shown. . Therefore we’re happy to tax it for 6 months for the new owner on sale – once they have a V5 in their name, it’s a simple matter to apply to DVLA for historic tax exemption. However it remains exempt from MOT testing.
It’s rather lovely and takes me back to my early 20’s – I ran several of them as daily drivers in the early 1980’s.
At the very bottom of the page, you’ll find our usual two videos: a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions, both of this particular example.
