The Triumph Spitfire was launched in 1962 to take advantage of the burgeoning market for two-seat convertible sports cars. For the final six years of its life it had a 1.5-litre engine. It was fitted with a four-speed manual gearbox, and in 1964 an overdrive option was added. Inside, it was quite rudimentary, with plastic mats and a plastic steering wheel. The flip-forward bonnet and front wings allow superb access to the engine bay, making life easy for the home mechanic. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Triumph repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our repair manual for the Triumph Spitfire is here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
