1975 Triumph Dolomite Sprint

Located in sunny Tasmania (well, it does have more sun than Victoria !), I have found a true little gem.   Not many of these left around, and this one is reportedly in fabulous condition.  This ad was found on eBay

The seller states that the car has been his pride and joy for the last 15 years during which time it has had the majority of the Moss / TriumphTune / Sprintparts performance catalogue thrown at it to bring it up to Fast Road spec as well as modifications to improve reliability (no overheating to worry about!).
