    What's she worth?

    I posted the car advert on facebook marketplace and there's been quite a lot of interest. Most interestingly, Stan Walters of SW Classics saw the advert and sent me a message. He said he doesn't have any paperwork for the car, but would be happy to answer any question to help uncover some things about the car's history. Stan's name has been mentioned a lot on here, so I'm delighted to have heard from him.

    Excellent! Thanks Pete.

    What's she worth?

    I've removed the price and have put the Car and Classics ad as offers invited. I don't have enough knowledge regarding the value of this car, nor have any set expectations, so I'll let the market decide what she's worth!

    That's interesting! Ill share it with whoever comes to see it. I've already had some calls and have a visit being arranged soon, which is great.

    Thanks Paul. I posted this last night. Plenty more photos on the listing, plus everything I know about the car.

    What's she worth?

    After a discussion with my partner, we've decided to sell the Vitesse. Although I adore the car, I'm not a triumph enthusiast and it came into my ownership by chance. I think it would be better with someone who will love it more, and have the opportunity to use it more that I would. I'm not sure if there's a for sale board on here, so I'll take a look and will add some details. if I fine one.

    What's she worth?

    Great, thank you. It's interesting to see the others for sale. Mine's far nicer (in my opinion!) and almost fully original. It's still +ve earth, which I might sort soon and put a USB in the glovebox. Very interesting about SW Classics and their reputation. That all adds to very limited info I already have

    What's she worth?

    Great, thank you for that. I only know the name of the company that restored it (SW Classics) but that's it. I know a small amount about the former owner from chatting with her neighbours, but that's it. Seemingly as poor as a church mouse, but with this lovely car hidden in a nearby garage. I didn't even have a key, so I had to break in with some string and order a new key from the barrel code!
  9. I was rather fortunate to have acquired this Vitesse through probate. The V5 arrived today and it transpires I'm on the second owner since new. I'm know what I paid for the car, but I have no idea what it's really worth. Any ideas? Not selling, just curious! '64 Vitesse 6. Professionally restored in 1994, and I believe 27k miles since. Two owners from new. Not immaculate, but pretty darn good! Only done 300 or so miles in the last 15 years. No history, just the V5. I'm sure it's all somewhere in the former owner's property, but the solicitor said it wasn't found. Shame really!

    Which oil? Vitesse

    The owner! Passed away at 99. I need to keep an eye on my sentence structure around here 😉

    Which oil? Vitesse

    She's a beaut. I had no intentions of getting one, but it fell into my possession and I had the chance to buy it. Professionally restored in '94 (according to the tssc website), and is showing 27k on the clock. Though nearly 100 years old, the former owner had it MOTd every year until 2018. MOT records show it did 20-30 miles a year over the last 16 years, so I assume this was an MOT test run each year. The former owner passed away last year and left the car to a charity. The charity preferred to have the money, so I made an offer and the rest is history.

    I'll give this a try!

    Which oil? Vitesse

    Thanks again everyone. Some very helpful advice. I took the car for its first short outing this weekend (it was acquired through probate so I hadn't driven it). Took a couple of mins to get her started, which isn't surprising considering it's not been started for years. The engine ran like a dream and didn't miss a beat. However, the brakes were sticking. It also wouldn't go into third gear. Brakes and gearbox are my next things to investigate!

    Thanks everyone
  15. Hi all. I got my vitesse recently, but it came through probate with no manuals. I want to get some oil, but am not sure which to get. Can anyone advise of the correct oil for a 64 Vitesse 6?
