AUSTIN HEALEY FROGEYE SPRITE - 1960

vehicle overview

1960 Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite MK I. Dark red with black upholstery. This beautiful Frogeye is a real credit to its previous owners. Far too much work has been done to the car to go into here, but highlights include a full engine rebuild in 2000 when an unleaded cylinder head was fitted along with larger 1.25in SU carburettors and a sports camshaft. A replacement Hardy Engineering gearbox was also fitted complete with uprated synchromesh. A large number of old MOTs from 1977 to 2018 would indicate that it has covered some 20,600 miles since the engine rebuild. In 2004 it was entrusted to Frogeye specialist The Ennion Workshop for a £4,500 bodywork refurbishment which included a new steel bonnet, sills, repaint etc. It also benefited from a new clutch, radiator, front shock absorbers, carpet set, hood, tonneau, stainless steel exhaust plus much else besides. Other bills attest to subsequent maintenance including new rear springs in 2013. Looking gorgeous and running beautifully as we took it for photographs, it also comes with a Heritage Certificate, some period sales brochures, the original buff log book, several old V5s, many photographs plus so many invoices that it would take you several hours to comb through them! Suffice to say that it certainly impressed us and we feel sure it will have the same effect on you. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and viewing is highly recommended. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
