Triumph Spitfire Fiberglass Racing Body, Tub & Chassis

It's a very unique body, I have never seen a late model Spitfire nose replicated in fiberglass.  The panels are well formed, light, and quite strong.  There are no builder marks on any of the panels, so I do not know whose it is. 

A previous owner appears to have attempted to cob a flare on the one fender with bondo and pop rivets.  This could easily be removed.  There are several minor fractures on the nose piece, and a few others.  Easily fixed.  No panels appear warped or badly damaged.  There are no chunks missing, and none of the panels appear to have ever actually been mounted.

It includes a rather unique body tub.  I do not know what racing or sanctioning body the roll cage was being built for.  The rear panel was "customed" by a tree branch falling on it, creating a very unique V. 

The chassis the body tub is sitting on can go with it as well.  The front hinge boxes were cut off the ends of the frame rails.  None the less, it is yours if you want it.  Cross drilled brake rotors, ohh-ahh!

Many more pictures are available.  http://s44.photobucket.com/user/fox-trapper/library/Spitfire%20Racing%20Body?sort=3&page=1  If the link doesn't work right, I can send you the pictures.

NO RESERVE!  It's going to the highest bidder, with no strings attached.  Here's *your* chance for a really unique fiberglass body.

Pickup only, in Westminster, Maryland.  I can't box it and stick it in the mail.  But, if you've got shipping knowledge, we can certainly talk.  PLEASE, lets talk and make sure it'll work before you bid.   

Cash when you pick it up is fine.  I do understand it's a large thing to pick up.  I'm not in a rush, but ebay does require us to process the transaction with some speed, especially the financial side.  I'll certainly help you load things into your truck or trailer.  Fwiw, I managed to get the entire thing into the bed of an older Toyota pickup truck some years ago when I brought it home.

P.S.  


Just found the fiberglass headlight surrounds!  They go with it.

To answer a few questions:

No, I don't believe the body was ever mounted.  There are no signs of it.  No holes drilled, no support tubes in the bonnet, tc.

Yes, it is gel coated.  That is why I do not believe it was simply glass laid over an existing Spitfire.  I would say it was done with real molds.

I would say it was hand laid roving, not chop spray or gun applied.  The strands are too long for a chopper gun, and it simply appears like layers of roving.
