Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic cars of Atlanta is proud to present this 1960 Austin Healey Sprite. Known as the "Frogeye" in the UK and as the "Bugeye" in the US the Austin Healey Sprite was produced in the United Kingdom from 1958 through 1971. Originally with a 43 hp 948 cc engine, this 1960 Sprite has been upgraded with a 1275 cc engine providing much better performance. Following the engine is a 5-speed manual Datsun transmission which makes this tiny convertible a real blast to cruise. Front suspension is a wishbone and coil spring setup with rack and pinion steering and the rear leaf springs with lever-arm shock absorbers. The exterior is finished in Iris Blue which was re-painted quite some time ago and has been well maintained still looking great today. You will notice there are no exterior door handles, this is how the Sprite was produced requiring both driver and passenger to reach inside to open the doors. The interior is pretty basic with black vinyl bench seats, basic gauges, and no radio. Options on this Austin Healey include: manual convertible top, seat belts, vinyl interior, hub cap wheels with radial tires, and a full cockpit tonneau cover.
