Triumph Vitesse 2-Litre MkII

Overview

Though the engine capacity was unchanged for the MkII Vitesse, revisions to the engine had increased the power by almost 10%. By this time Triumph saw fit to revise the rear suspension with lower wishbones, to improve the handling when near the limit. Visually, a three-bar grille is the instant giveaway that you are looking at a MkII. However, by the late 1960's the buying public considered the Vitesse as dated and were attracted to more modern cars produced by Fords, Rootes and Vauxhall. How things have change as both the Saloon and Convertible are now sort after cars. Overdrive was an optional extra and is worth paying more for a car fitted with it. In the past Convertibles tended to be more expensive than Saloons but over the last two years (2012 - 2014) the prices has become closer. Before you purchase a Convertible make sure you buy a real one and not a modified Saloon. The commission plate should have the suffix code CV on it. If in doubt obtain the factory information, a Heritage Certificate, from the Gaydon Heritage Motor Centre. A Saloon modified to a Convertible will be worth less than an original model.
