Description
 
The Vitesse convertible is a long term favourite with us and our customers thanks to its unrivalled combination of sporty performance with genuine four seat family accomodation. This particular example is a late 2-litre Mk1 model, first registered in August 1968. It has led a very gentle life, having had just two owners since 1982 - the last, a long-term TSCC member, since 1988. The history suggests the current indicated mileage of 44500 may be correct. In 1995 he commissioned SW Classics in Devon to carry out a full bare metal strip and repaint of the car, changing the colour from the original white to black which the factory only used on the first 1600cc Vitesse. It was clearly a superb job because even 18 years later the paintwork has a great shine and no major blemishes. The interior appears completely original and is very tidy. The hood is also in excellent condition. After a period of little use, the car has had significant expenditure over the last 18 months. This has included a new radiator, water pump, fuel tank, battery, clutch, brake master cylinder and stainless exhaust system. The car has just had a full service, including all new plugs, leads etc and the current MOT runs to the end of August 2014. The engine now runs very sweetly indeed. The all important chassis is very solid and there were no advisory notices on the last MOT certificate. On the road it certainly feels like a low mileage car. The steering is light, sharp and accurate and the gear change precise (it is the non-overdrive version). The 2-litre's 95 bhp gave it near ton-topping performance in its day and the car still feels more than up to the job of matching modern traffic. With the excellent specialist spares back up enjoyed by all the Herald family cars, they are straightforward to maintain and very easy to live with. Add in Michelotti's stylish design and the open air practicality and the enduring appeal of the Vitesse is very easy to understand.
