The Austin Healey Sprite
Designed by Donald Healey to make sports car driving more affordable, the Sprite went into production in March 1958 at MG's Abingdon plant. The new car was officially introduced in Monte Carlo a few months later, just before the Monte Carlo Rally, underlining the brand's sporting intentions for the new car. The one-piece body featured a distinctive rear-hinged combined bonnet and wings, topped by twin 'frog's eye' headlamps, ensuring instant recognition and the now-familiar nickname.
The Sprite offered by us has a very extensive well-documented history, consisting of a folder, including workshop notes (worth € 5,000), club magazines and valuation reports.
The color combination is also very tasteful, the body is painted in Racing green. A very nice combination with the green interior. The black convertible top is also very beautiful.
In addition to the original steel hood, the hood support is also still present.
This Sprite was originally delivered new in the United States and registered with a Dutch license plate since 1991.
The body of this Sprite is sleek and intact. The sheet metal is original. The doors, sills, fenders, hood and trunk lid have fittings. Also the sills have not been welded.
The paintwork is in very good condition.
The car has recently been fitted with new side windows.

De Austin Healey Sprite
Ontworpen door Donald Healey, bedoeld om het rijden in sportwagens betaalbaarder te maken, ging de Sprite in maart 1958 in productie in de fabriek van MG in Abingdon. De nieuwe auto werd een paar maanden later officieel geïntroduceerd in Monte Carlo, net voor de Monte Carlo Rally, wat de sportieve intenties van het merk voor de nieuwe auto onderstreept. Het koetswerk uit één stuk had een opvallende achteraan scharnierende gecombineerde motorkap en vleugels, bekroond door dubbele 'kikkeroog'-koplampen, die onmiddellijke herkenning en de nu bekende bijnaam garandeerden.
De door ons aangeboden Sprite heeft een zeer uitgebreide goed gedocumenteerde historie, bestaande uit een ordner, met onder andere werkplaatsnota's (t.w.v. € 5.000,-), clubbladen en taxatierapporten.
Ook is de kleurencombinatie zeer smaakvol te noemen, de carrosserie is gespoten in het Racing green. Een zeer fraai combinatie met het groene interieur. Heel erg mooi is ook zwarte cabrioletkap.
Naast de nog originele stalen motorkap is ook de motorkapsteun nog aanwezig.
Oorspronkelijk is deze Sprite nieuw geleverd in de Verenigde Staten en sinds 1991 op Nederlands kenteken geregistreerd.
De carrosserie van deze Sprite is strak en gaaf. Het plaatwerk is origineel. De portieren, dorpels, spatborden, motorkap en kofferdeksel hebben kloppende passingen. Ook is er niet aan de dorpels gelast.
Het lakwerk verkeert in een zeer goede staat.
Recent is de auto voorzien van nieuwe zijruiten.
