Description - Triumph Spitfire and GT6 by Richard Dredge

For a whole generation of car enthusiasts, Triumph was the manufacturer to turn to when buying a sports car. Whether it was a Spitfire or GT6 - or the more costly TR models - this Coventry manufacturer was the sports car king during the twentieth century. Now that these machines are fully fledged classics, nothing has changed. While the Spitfire has the MGB as a formidable adversary, the GT6 is still in a class of its own. Triumph Spitfire and GT6 details the history and development of these classic cars, with specification guides for each of the five Spitfire derivatives and three GT6 models. AUTHOR: Richard Dredge bought his first Triumph, a Herald 1200, when he was just sixteen. He purchased a Vitesse when he was twenty-one and, as with the Herald, he completely rebuilt the car, incorporating many changes along the way, including the fitment of a 2.5-litre engine with triple Weber carburettors. Richard is a motoring specialist, and writes for magazines such as Practical Classics, Classic Car Weekly and Classic Motoring. In the past he has also written for Classic Cars, Octane and Classic and Sports Car. For more information, visit: www.richarddredge.com 291 colour photographs
