1961 Austin Healey Sebring Sprite

Body no. 45823, Engine no. XSP1736-3

Healey Blue with Black Interior

 

One of four “lightweight” team cars originally campaigned by Briggs Cunningham at Sebring. Among the rarest of all racing Austin Healey’s and built with fiberglass front and rear body sections and alloy doors. Engine upgraded to 998cc rods and pistons, and a reworked 1100cc cylinder head and camshaft. Correct Girling front calipers and discs, with 8 inch rear drums. Comes with a roll bar. Beautiful presentation and historically significant. An unintimidating entry to many of the world’s premier vintage racing and road rally venues.

 

More to come.
