1968 Austin Healey Sprite

Here we have a beautiful resto-mod 1968 Austin Healey sprite! Fully restored from the ground up, his car is guaranteed to turn heads wherever you go and leave you with a smile on your face as big as it's own! We'll start from the beginning... the car is actually a 1968, ith a clear title, egally registered in NC. It has had a custom fiberglass widebody kit seamlessly installed, ncluding rounded rear fender flares and a one piece "bugeye" style front end. The original bullet proof 1275 has been rebuilt and bored .040 over, ith a high performance cam, igh compression pistons, orted and polished head, ull length tubular header and sidepipe exhaust, nd is topped with a super streetable (and super reliable) weber downdraft carb. The ignition is provided through a Mallory distributor and MSD 6A box. A high output denso style mini alternator has been fitted, s well as a remote, igh mounted cooling system expansion tank. Two electric fans run through a solid state fan control and blow air through a cross flow radiator. The entire vehicle has been completely professionally rewired to exorcise the car of it's lucas demons. It's also got the 'rib case' 4 speed manual transmission (with a slight grind in 2nd included with no extra charge lol). The brakes have also been upgraded from 4 wheel drums to front disc/rear drum, ontrolled by a Tilton adjustable bias dual master cylinder setup (the clutch is also in there). From there, e'll move on to the interior. The dashboard is a one off custom piece, itted with a full complement of auto meter ultra lite gauges, moto lita knife handle steering wheel directing things, he factory seats have been canned in favor of a set of super comfy Corbeau race seats with 5 point racing harnesses, nd the entire interior has been rhino lined. All that sits beneath carpet floor mats. The trunk is separated from the cabin by a custom built MDF speaker board with 2 6x9's mounted in it. The trunk has also been rhino lined, nd contains the battery and fuse panel. Underneath the car is an adjustable aftermarket Panhard bar with leaf springs and adjustable shocks in the rear, he entire undercarriage is rhino lined, AS NO RUST in the floor pans, O RUST in the trunk, O RUST on the undercarriage anywhere, nd stock coils with original knee shocks handle the business up front. This car has been built with only the best parts, o expense spared anywhere! It's a reliable, treetable, aily drivable custom hot rod! Rides stiff, andles like a slot car, nd gets looks, miles, nd thumbs-up no matter where you go. It's not perfect, ot a couple of little rust bubbles on the passenger door and the drivers side just behind the hood. The windshield has a crack right down the middle. It has been priced with these easily remedied issues in mind, f course :) More pictures are available upon request, ust shoot a message my way.
