Vehicle Description

Ladies and Gentlemen, Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City has just received a vehicle that will help you to put fun into our lovely pandemic! Now for sale and now for fun, a 1960 Austin Healy, Mark 1 Sprite! Try to wipe the smile off your face when driving! You can't! If you have had thoughts of putting an engine in your bathtub, slapping a steering wheel and wheels on it and taking her for a spin on the roadway, that is possibly what the British were thinking when they created the 1960 Austin Healy, 'Bug Eyed' Sprite! The Sprite was announced to the press in Monte Carlo by the British Motor Corporation on 20 May 1958, two days after that year's Monaco Grand Prix. It was intended to be a low-cost model that "a chap could keep in his bike shed", yet be the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin Seven. The Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, with production being undertaken at the MG factory at Abingdon. It first went on sale at a price of £669, using a tuned version of the Austin A-Series engine and as many other components from existing cars as possible to keep costs down. Our very cute Nevada Beige Austin Healy has a 'Purrs like a kitten' newly rebuilt 4 cylinder engine that cranks out 43 horse power! Plus, shifting a car has never been more entertaining than running through the gears in the newly rebuilt transmission. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a very small car offering very big fun for not much money! There's really nothing more to say than, "Come and get it!"
