Hagerty Oveview:"The Mk II Sprites initially ran with virtually the same 948-cc A-series OHV 4-cylinder engines as the Bugeye, but by October 1962, the longer stroke 1098-cc version was adopted, allowing a power increase from 46 bhp to 56 bhp. The car’s outright straight line speed was limited by this engine’s displacement and power, but its light weight and low center of gravity made it a terrific handler, and the Sprite earned a reputation on the rally circuit.
Today, later Sprites are less expensive than Bugeye Sprites and still deliver much of the same driving experience, which makes them good bargains. Purists tend to prefer the Mk II Sprites (1962-1964), as they are relatively easy to own and work on, with parts being easily available and mechanicals being straightforward. Performance enhancements are popular with these cars as well, which makes them interesting choices for rallying".
