Not sure if I should post this with the Spitfires or perhaps in the Odds & Ends instead, maybe both.
Many may remember previous posts from me about a variety of documentation I have and will continue to collect regarding our Spitfires and GT6's. I am in the process of collecting a few more in the next week (probably for more that I should have paid) but today I received a rather, I think, unique set of documents I purchased from Ebay. The photo shows a montage of the three documents.
One is a TSOA handbook, 2nd edition, probably from around 1971 as that is the age of the other docs. It is authored by Mike Cook of Triumph fame. The book contains a lot of interesting information about all the Triumph cars of that age, including wiring, specifications for everything, as well as some tips and hints for fixes by the owner. Some of you may have similar issues so know what I am talking about.
The red book is the usual owners manual for the 1971 MkIV, which seems to be somewhat scarce.
The small white booklet is an original sales document for a 71 Spitfire sold by New London Motors, New London Conn, on 4-26-71. It has the original owners name and address as the Commission # and engine # . It also contains the original owners metal identification plate that was part of the sales documents at that time.
I do not know if the seller was a family member (different last name) or how he came into the documents but I will now have the obligation to see if I can locate a family member and see if they would have an interest in the sales documents and plate.
I have checked and the commission number is not listed in the Spitfire database.
