Vehicle Description

STK 3331 1967 Austin-Healy Sprite Race Car

The Austin Healey Sprite Mark IV was produced British Motor Corp/British Leyland from 1967 through 1971. It was a very basic sports car powered by a 1275cc OHV 4-cylinder engine. That said, this 1967 Sprite is a serious racecar that was built by Billy Coates in 2005 and has been carefully 'tweaked' over the years. The owner has campaigned this Sprite very successfully for the last 16 years in VRG, VDCA and SVRA events. It has consistently been one of the fastest Sprites on the East Coast circuit.

Horsepower is provided by a 1300cc BMC 'A-Series' 4-cyl OHV engine that was rebuilt in 2021. Output is rated at 130bhp and 106lb/ft and it is backed by a 'dog-ring' 4-speed gearbox. Engine race modifications include:
• Polished, balanced crank
