I think you’re right, Andy. I could have sworn I’d seen it listed in the Spare Parts Catalog, but I can’t find it now. It is in Kastner’s Competition Preparation Manual. Interestingly, it still has a part number (V0101), so presumably Triumph dealers sold them in period.

Any other info on make/model?

That's what is in the trunk of my ( now long-dormant) Spitfire 4 ex-GP turned autocrosser, said car having been built probably in the late 1960s and pretty much as a textbook example of the Spitfire Competition Preparation Manual.
