1962-1967 TRIUMPH Spitfire 4/Mk II specifications


Inspired by the success of the Frogeye Sprite, and Triumph’s firm belief that it could build something better, the Spitfire was born in 1962, after the Frogeye had gone, but in time to tackle the MG Midget head-to-head. With similar performance and the benefit of independent rear suspension it fulfilled that task with great success. Overdrive became an option from October ‘63, and was something else the Midget never got. The MkII arrived in March 1965 with la new grille and improved interior, but there was an extra 4bhp thanks to a new cam and tubular exhaust manifold.
