1959 Austin Healey Sprite Black Additional Info:

The 1959 Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite is a small open sports car which was produced in the United Kingdom from 1958 to 1971. The Sprite quickly became affectionately known as the "frogeye" in the UK and the "bugeye" in the US, because its headlights were prominently mounted on top of the bonnet, inboard of the front wings. The cars featured a 948cc Inline 4 cylinder engine that pumps out 43hp and was capable of propelling the Sprite to a top speed of over 80mph.
The little Bugeye Is Finished in British Racing Green, this little car is in overall good condition inside and out. The Engine appears to have been removed and rebuild at a point not to long ago however, I cannot confirm it. It shows in overall very clean condition and all the new gaskets and newer gasket sealer stands out. The paint is an older paint job. The under body chassis is in good overall condition. I showed in the photo's the before and after "Eastwood Premium rubber rust inhibitor undercoating". The chrome exterior trim is very good overall shine. The car sits on newly coated silver powder coated steel wheels with "new" chrome factory hubcaps. The tires have around 300 miles on them and are the "Correct "Vredestin Sprint T80 148R13" British car tires". The is a spare tire in the rear along with a brand new hubcap that is sitting on top of spare. Included are a set of "Brookland style racing windscreen, as well as, original windshield with both rubber gasketes and bolts. The soft top is in great shape as well. Along with a "Original" set of Side Curtains along with a aftermarket set also. The black interior is overall good condition. New Fuel tank and Brakes. Clean dashboard and wooden gear shift knobs are particularly nice as well.
This little Bugeye offers you way more fun then you'd imagine, these little Sprites are appreciating at a quick rate.
