1 Owner! Austin Healey Sprite MK 1.
This 1960 Classic is a real gem
If you come and see this lovely little 948cc Classic, everything about her is a credit to her owner who has cherished her from new. She comes with a mass of history which includes lots of small Shellubrication pass books.

The Frogeye Sprite has long been a favourite for affordable classic fun. Her cheeky looks always bring a smile and she is guaranteed to turn heads. My Brother-in-law called into our Showroom and the first thing he said was, 'Wow, I had one of those'. This car comes with many spares including 4 x spoked wheels with new winter tyres on so the running costs will be kept to a minimum, the Sprite has excellent parts availability which make it a very practical sports car to own. She also has a Stainless Steel Exhaust system plus 2 other full length exhaust pipes as spare.

Introduced in 1958, the Sprite recreated the spirit of the small sports cars of the 1930s. Designed by Donald Healey, using a mixture of Austin and Morris parts.

This Sprite's Old English White coachwork is in fair condition for the year and she has polished up nicely, her bonnet has been changed from the Frogeye to a fibreglass Sebring front end. It does have some small crazing which can be expected for a Classic of this age. Personally, we think the Sebring front looks smarter.

The interior is also in good fettle, no tears in her red leather seats. Her chrome is also in good condition. When you lift the bonnet, the engine bay is very clean, you will see that she has been well maintained all her life.

This Sprite is ready to enjoy, she has a new tonnue cover plus the full canvass folding hood. The sidescreen windows can also be removed on sunny days which add to the feel of a real sports car. She will be sold with 12 month MOT and tax. Her quiet engine starts on the button and runs like a watch, she has covered 101,200 miles and the boxes of spares would indicate that she has had a rebuild at some stage, her four speed gearbox changes nice and smoothly.
