1969 Austin Healey Sprite
1969 was the last year that Austin-Healey Sprites were imported into the United States. It was also the last year of the manufacturing agreement between Austin Motors and Donald Healey. This car needs a total restoration; it does not run. It has aclear Pennsylvania title and is complete with many extra parts. Its last inspection sticker is from 1980-81.Engine may be stuck. I keep adding a 50:50 mix of acetone and automatic transmission fluid (way better than WD-40 and the like) to the cylinders and rocking it while in gear.
Extra parts included are shown in the pictures along with a second top mechanism, a second dash, a radio and its enclosure,carburetors, air cleaners, grille parts,left front fender, restoration and repair manuals, owner's manual, etc.In addition to the rust shown in the photos, the floor has a couple of small holes, but I don't think it would need a total floor replacement. The top no longer looks like the photo since a nephew put a basketball through it. Sheet metal parts are available from Victoria British and Moss Motors. Look at https://mossmotors.com/mg-midget-austin-healey-sprite/body-panels-structure/body-panels-late-948-to-1500for all the body parts available.
I have too many other projects and will not get to this one. It is stored in my detached garage, and I need the room for our other vehicles. Local pick-up only.
This car was previously listed on eBay, but the buyer wasn't able to complete the sale through no fault of his own.
I will not sell only the title and tag, so don't ask. If you buy the car, you get the whole car.
