The Chrome Bumpers and Grill are excellent original condition as well. The Transmission is a Datsun 5 Speed with OD 5th (Rivergate conversion) with an AH Wood shift knob and special Twin outside rear view mirrors. The Engine (with approximately 1500 break-in miles on it) is a 1275 A Series Block (coded "V"= stronger internal webbing thats been bored .0020 over). It has been partially balanced and has fairly "hot" cam (but very "streetable"), along with a Weber 2V progressive Carburetor, Pacesetter Exhaust Header, new Sprite Muffler and produces about 80hp- and it definitely wants to go over 100mph in 5th! The engine has a special crankcase ventilation system and a new gas tank with locking gas cap.

A Front Anti-Roll Bar has been added. The body is basically rust free and there has never been any repair of any kind. All Instruments have been serviced and or cleaned. The original owner drove the Sprite for 3 to 4 summers, and then it was stored inside for 41 years, after which, I bought it in 2009 from the gentleman's estate. I have owned six MK2 Sprites since the early 60's, and this one is by far the best (and fastest). The car runs great and is fairly quick and is "reliable".

I do have the "British Heritage Certificate" for the car.The Sprite could be driven home (if you were up to it) and I could also assist in arranging shipping. Over $35K invested and but arthritis in my hands and bad hips have finally caught up with me. The price is $22,000. FOB Minneapolis, MN USA.
