1966 Austin Healey Sprite

Selling my 1966 Austin Healey Sprite. It has been a project car for me and it now runs. Currently running on e85 since it runs cooler and it was jetted for it by previous owner. It was raced back in the day. It has an alloy head. I havent torn the engine apart but i was told it has a race cam and forged pistons. I was told it is slightly over bored. It does have rockers and headers. A weber 45 carb that could be tuned better. I believe it needs to be dropped down a main jet size and a choke size. It has old mag minator wheels on it. It has come custom body work and the hood is lift up like an old race car which makes it easier to get to everything. It has new spark plugs wires and a cap. New alternator. The battery dies if you leave it hooked up because the alternator isn't switched and drains it. The transmission and clutch are great. I have some spare parts mainly the top bracket and a set of stock wheels. Some misc stuff too.
The car does run and can be driven but these are geared pretty low so it would be better to trailer it distance. I don't really want to ship it as I would prefer you come inspect it. I have a clean california title and it is up to date on registration. Any questions let me know. Can take more pictures, if you would like to see the car let me know and we can arrange a time. If you would like the car shipped without an in person inspection I will sell it as is and work with your shipping carrier of choice.
The milage is unknown to me as it was stripped years ago and the speedometer is gone. California doesn't report milage after something like 10 years so it is not on the title.
