1959 Austin Healey Sprite

Please Excuse the water droplet on my picture lense.....this is not a flaw in Bugeye

The 1959 Austin Healey Sprite is lightweight sports car fun with a legendary name attached to it. That's why it's always so alluring. These first-gen Frogeyes have become truly desirable collectors, and so it's great to see one so expertly restored
The Sprites were all about the joy of driving, and these first-gens really did it the best. After all, you can't help but smile when you see the "Frogeye" styling that's unique to these first few years. And while the design is endearing, this had a much larger purpose. It's a featherweight machine that could even shed the roof, side curtains, and windshield for racing. And while the black vinyl top might be for temporary use, it's a crisp piece that looks striking against the Austin Healey Red Paintwork. This is part of a thorough restoration, and it looks so fresh because there's only about 75 miles on the car since completion! They made subtle upgrades while still paying attention to details. For example, you see it in how the wheels were updated to classic minilite-style units, but they still have the classic AH center cap.
You get a fresh interior with great details, like a custom-made wood Steering Wheel. large Smiths gauges, and a gearshift that falls perfectly to where your hand wants to be.
The hood now hinges at the front for better access to the motor. This is a good thing, because it really gives everyone a chance to see the level of detail in the restoration. You can see they spent a small fortune detailing this motor. But the true secret here is the Original 948CC...2 barrel Rebuilt Motor was done correctly Plus, It still retains its Original Carburetors The last key to the Sprite being so good on the backroads is its unibody construction. It was revolutionary for a road car at the time, and it keeps the body strong in the turns.
The sale comes complete with a racing tonneau and storage bags for the side windows. This is a high-quality restoration of one of the most distinct classics around, so you know you don't want this to slip away. "Buy It Before its Gone"
