1969 Austin Healey Sprite

This 1969 Austin Healey Sprite is a blast to drive and runs like a charm.

I purchased my Sprite in 2009 from a gentleman who restores Bugeye Sprites; I was told the car was restored a number of years earlier.

There are no leaks and the car runs and drives great.

Body and paint are in great shape. As you can see from the pictures, here is some bubbling on the panels behind the rear tires; the bubbling was on the car when I purchased it but it hasn’t gotten any worse in the time I’ve owned it.

There is a spare and jack in the trunk.

Interior is clean with new carpet, eupholstered seats, ustin Healey mats and yes, n 8-track player (8-tracks included). All gauges and lights work as intended.

The top is in great shape and is easy to put up and down.

I keep the car in my personal garage. I never drove it in the winter and stored it in the back of my garage, tarting the car periodically and rolling it forward or back to prevent flat spots on the tires.

As with all vehicles of this age, ’m selling the car “As Is” and will have No Warranty or Guarantee. Upon commitment to purchase the buyer is required to make a $500 deposit within 24 hours.

Here is a walk around video taken just before I bought the car:
