The Cambridge TSSC AO has a 1200 bodied Vitesse (undergoing a restoration at the moment).

That ebay one would be more tempting if it had a proper saloon roof instead of that catastrophically ugly Tristan bodge.


Current fleet
1967 Vitesse 2L conv "Tessa"
1970 Spitfire Mk3 (project) "Toby"
1972 GT6 Mk3
Not enough time or space
Recently sold:
1972 2.5 PI estate "Harry" (gone to russell on here)
1973 Toledo 2-door "Spike" (gone to a club official)
Used to have:
1968 Vitesse 2L saloon
1980 Dolomite 1500
1977 Dolomite 1850
1980 Dolomite Sprint
1982 TR7 DHC Sprint
1975 2500S saloon
1971 Herald 13/60 Estate (with 1500 Spit engine)
1975 Stag

Yep, would be a nice car with the proper saloon roof in place.

Always a bit dubious about the "Vitesse" conversions as it's rarely clear how many essential Vitesse features (like the bigger brakes!) have been included.
