Advert Description


Hi, it is with a heavy heart that I place this ad for my much loved Burlington Barretta.

This car started life as a 1972 Triumph Spitfire so enjoys free road tax due to being classed as a historical vehicle. Somewhere around 1988/89 it was transformed into the car as it is today. Along the way it was owned by the racing driver 'Tony Dean' which within the history I have a copy of the V5.

Also within the vehicles historic documents I have are MOT's stating Burlington one dated 1997, some letters of sale from over the years, the original Burlington brochure, order form and letter of receipt for the kit, the original Burlington badge and a letter from the designer stating that only 80 sets of the flowing wings were ever sold and estimating that less than 50 were ever finished back in the late 80's/ early 90's and that makes it 'quite a rare car'.

The Burlington has been taxed and tested every year whilst I have owned it and kept in a dry garage and has never been out in the wet or winter. I have maintained to keep the patina of the car looking very 1930's so there is no brash modern chrome only aged and vintage parts have been added.

It has a full fold down windscreen with operational wipers and washers as well as the fold down Brooklands screens. The car sports a 2ltr Ford Pinto engine so with the light weight of the car can really move but due to the low centre of gravity handles superbly. All wheels including the spare are genuine spokes (not hubs). The car always draws a crowd and very few people have ever known what it is. Viewings and questions are welcomed. Please not that the personal registration is not included in the sale and will come with the original 'L' reg plate.
