1959 Austin Healey Sprite
1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite Mark 1 in tartan red with black interior, leather faced seats. The car was recently restored and has been sitting in a garage until this spring. The car has been lovingly cared for and never been driven in the rain during my familyâ€™s 34 year ownership. It is in excellent running condition! Recently detailed and tuned. Needs cosmetics to be a real looker.
A nice example of the marque with well-thought-out upgrades/options, in a very desirable and traditional English color scheme.Some improvements include:
â— New leather seat covers and pads
â— Les Leston steering wheel and matching wooden shift knob
â— New wheels (mini-lite type) and tires with less than 300 miles on themÂ·
â— Rivergate transmission conversion with Datsun 5 speed transmission
â— Super tuned, custom built SU carbs with K&N air filters
â— New brakes
â— Rebuilt master and slave cylinder
This car is a looker and a great driver - it will take very little to make it perfect! The car could use a paint job, and there is a small hole in the driverâ€™s door. I am includinga replacement door (unpainted).The car comes with the following: black tonneau cover, car cover, front bumper, disc brake conversion kit, replacement door, and the original transmission.
I have not listed the mileage because it is unknown. I replaced the Speedometer head in 2007 and shows 1400 or so miles. The Speedo head that it replaced had not worked in years.
No warranty - sold in as in condition. Buyer must arrange for shipping or pick up. Cheers!
