Vehicle Description

The Austin-Healey Sprite Mark 1 affectionately called Bugeye is an unmistakable work of art. About 49000 were made in the three year run of 1958-61. This 1960 four speed convertible borrows assets and features from many previous vehicles such as the Jaguar D-type's rear suspension design and its engine from the British Morris Minor 1000 and the Austin A35. The manufacturer did not design the car with exterior door handles adding to the smooth sleek exterior. Also by moving access of the rear compartment from a boot lid to behind the foldable seats not only was extra baggage space provided but this also greatly increased structural integrity.We have on order a new vinyl top that is included in this price which completes the look of this classic.
