1960 AN5L Bugeye Sprite. Black Plate California car. Purchased by original owner in Sacramento, CA. I purchased car from that owner in 2009, car had been sitting in garage since 1989. Upon purchase, I did complete restoration from bare shell up. What’s new or rebuilt? Just about everything. I have complete record and receipts. This car is stunning, and has earned seven first in class awards in seven major British car shows entered. The car gets raves everywhere it goes, and was featured in the Jan-Feb 2011 issue of Austin Healey Magazine. Upgrades from original are for safety and drivability.
Engine: 1098 (10CC) rebuilt by professional in 2013, includes mild street cam, Gerards rear seal kit, Moss spin-on oil filter kit, Pertronix Flamethrower distributor, Lucas sport coil, twin HS2 SU carbs rebuilt by SU Carbs, rebuilt starter and generator. New flywheel ring gear, timing gears & chain, oil pump. New exhaust system and muffler. New ECCO electronic fuel pump. Fuel tank cleaned and lined, new lines, K&N filters throughout.

Electrical: New wiring harness, bulbs, etc. New battery 2013, in Moss battery tray liner. The wiper and heater motors are in place, but have not been connected. The car was not ever going to be in weather that needed them !

The original steering wheel, top frame, side curtains, front bumper with overiders and license frame, two blade cooling fan, door interior panels, and new heater intake duct hose are not installed but included with car.
Misc: New badges, tail lights, etc. All receipts and records. Austin Healey registry. I have probably missed listing items, but the car is basically outstanding. Current California title.
