Description

1962 Austin Healey Sprite- Built for AutoX and road use. This car has been built to be driven, the 948cc engine pulls like a much bigger motor and is built to last. This is perhaps the most fun street car I've ever owned. It handles like a dream, pulls like no tomorrow and shifts smoothly. The car was built using parts amassed over the past 20 years, many of which are no longer available at any price. It may not go faster than 90 mph, but it will go through corners at whatever speed YOU can handle. Even includes the "Real Men use Three Pedals" sticker!!
