Own a historic classic 1977 S reg Triumph Dolomite 1500HL
Triumph Dolomite 1500 HL,.(Spitfire type engine)
Plenty of work done but needs a little more to make it a reliable classic, Was taken off road in April 2019 to rebuild engine.. Plenty of historic paperwork and a well used workshop 1500 manual to go with the car plus Lots of spare parts. All four doors open and close superbly. The Dolly is solid underneath, with four original mudflaps. The suspension has been replaced with Spax units, and brakes have been cleaned and checked overI.
The Interior is complete, apart from part of the cardboard part of the dash. . Paint is tatty in places and pretty good in others. The fiery Spitfire ENGINE is fantastic, Good starter, and pretty fast. A New central core plug has just been fitted. so carbs now needs tuning up.
BAD BITS A small amount of panel welding may be needed at the front, at the side of the spoiler, and an offside arch repair panel is needed.
