Description:

1958 Austin Healey Sprite

This is a good candidate for restoration as it is solid in places that these nearly always rust out ....ie- rear fender quarters, B posts, outer rockers, inner front fenders and hood are pretty good, maybe a small patch here and there on those parts.Virtually every panel, nut, bolt and washer is available online for these cars.

The above videos give an in depth description of the car, please watch these before asking questions or bidding.
There is no title, just a bill of sale, the last two bills of sale and the keys.There is no VIN record of the car that I can find.Search 'Busaru' on youtube for a tutorial on getting a title issued. It worked for me!
The car needs full restoration from back to front.Floor pans provided in the sale.Seats and soft top missing although the frame seems to be there.Engine is turning free by hand.Probably some small items missing.
Good bonnet, needs a couple of rust repairs.Original paint mostly.Hardly any bondo, if any at all.
Rear center panel needs work.Floors are rusted out.Screen is cracked.Doors are rough but spares provided (they also need work but have good structure).All mechanical parts will need an overhaul in my opinion.
You can buy unseen, although I would recommend a visit first.I will help load onto a truck of your choice but take no responsibility.Uship have good rates, estimates are fast on their website.I will sell to overseas buyers but all arrangements must be done by them or their shipping agent.
Payment is $250 paypal deposit and the rest by bank transfer please.
Good Luck folks!Steve
