1961 Austin Healey Sprite

For your consideration is a 1961 Austin Healey Sprite. The car is a solid example of the Bugeye and is truly a joy to drive. The interior is in nice condition, with seats and carpet that are in good condition with no rips or tears and is complemented by a new panel kit. Sound deadeningheat shield was added to the floors to help with noise and heat dissipation. The car runs and drives well and the exhaust has a nice sound as you go down the road. The car has been freshly painted in Healey Blue. While this was not a standard color for Sprites, the color accentuates the lines and detail of the Sprite well.

The car is mechanically sound and recently had the following work completed:

  • New brake master cylinder
  • New wheel cylinders on all four wheels
  • New fuel pump

The only part of the car that could use some care would be the top. It serves its purpose, but should be replaced it you were planning on driving in inclement weather.
