Any Vitesse convertibles for sale out there?
June 29, 2014
6:10 pm

Hello All!
I'm in need of some guidance. I'm a young member, and I've owned and have gradually fixed up a 1969 Spitfire for the last 5 years (my first Triumph), but I have had my fun with it and would like to try something different, something with a bit more power and bit more distinctive. I love the looks of the Vitesse convertible, and I am considering selling (or doing a part-trade) my Spitfire to buy a Vitesse 2-liter convertible (drophead).
My question is, are there any good Vitesses out here (California region) or should I import one from the UK? As for the UK option, I really would like a right-hand-drive car (I owned a RHD Austin 1300GT for a few months and loved the driving experience, and it didn't present any difficulties for me – too bad the car kept breaking down). I also found a small firm in New Hampshire that imports and registers British classics – Classic Auto Imports of Etna, N.H.
With all of this in mind, what are your recommendations? Is there someone with a Vitesse for sale? Should I import one to CA? Or should I just stick to my Spitfire? Thank you all for your time!
