Description: This Austin Healy Bug Eyed Sprite is one of 13,441 made in the left hand drive platform for export. This car is cousin to the more well known MG models but is popular in its own right. This particular Sprite is not completely original but has been tastefully upgraded. The engine has been upgraded to the larger 1275cc model coupled to the original 4-speed manual transmission. The engine is also equipped with a Mallory distributor, Weber side draft carburetor, and an exhaust header for easier breathing. The suspension has been upgraded as well in the name of safety with later model disc brakes which stop this light car very easily. The remainder of the vehicle is a nice example with factory instrumentation and appearance. The body is in nice condition and also includes the factory tonneau cover for the passenger compartment when being stored.
