JIGSAW are pleased to present ADU 7B, the only surviving ex Triumph Works Rally Spitfire, the most successful of the four original works cars built by the Triumph works to compete in the 1964 & 1965 tarmac continental rallies.

 

Now back in the UK for the first time since the 1960's, having been re-united with her sister car, ADU 1B, the only racing Le Mans Triumph Spitfire from 1964/65, and under the roof of JIGSAW and ownership of enthusiast Mark Field.

ADU 7B was re-launched at the Triumph Sports Six Club International event at Stafford, August 2008, to a crowd of fellow Triumph enthusiasts, having undergone a sympathetic rebuild, which has included the reversion to RHD and the reconstruction of the bonnet having removed a GT6 bulge, the rebuild has also keep the cars heritage dents and bumps.  As with ADU1B, the engine and drive train have been built up to the original factory specifications, together with the exhaust system.
