The books in the Everyday Modifications series are designed to guide classic car owners through the workshop skills needed to make their vehicles easier to use and enjoy. This book is concerned with improving the 4-cylinder Spitfire and Herald, and the 6-cylinder Vitesse and GT6, with engines ranging in size from 948cc to 1998cc. Classic car author and journalist Iain Ayre gives his hands-on advice on maintaining and modifying the Triumph Herald/Vitesse and Spitfire/GT6, covering both keeping them going and either subtly or dramatically improving them, with additional rescue options offered for Triumphs deemed economically terminal. The advice, based on decades of restoration and racing, covers improvements in power, handling, comfort and safety; period design faults isolated and remedied; electrics demystified, modernizing options discussed; six case studies; radical - as well as mild - modification options discussed. Superbly illustrated with over 250 colour photographs including rare period shots.
