Thanks Dave, that's a fascinating site. Thinking a bit more about it, I seem to recall that this model was actually referred to as 'Spitfire 1500', rather than any Mark number, presumably to differentiate it from the 1296cc Mark IV. Many preferred the Mark IV, because it had twin SU carbs, rather than the single Stromberg (or was it Weber?) fitted to the 1500.
Apparently, I left the 'V' out - http://www.geograph.org.uk/article/Classic-Cars-at-Lincoln-Castle
Thanks Steve. These photographs have been sitting on Geograph in the hope that someone like your good self will update the details. I'll ask around for the mark number. Regards, Dave
Think you may have the mark number somewhat wrong; this was the last of the Spitfire models, and although I can't remember which Mark number it was, I had a 1973 (L registration) 1296cc which was a Mark IV.
