Description for Austin Healey Bugeye Sprint 1959

1959 Austin Healey Sprite The Austin Healey Sprite Mark I, better known as the Frogeye or Bugeye, was produced from 1958 through 1961. This 1959 Sprite Mark I was restored to near concourse condition in 1999. Look at the pictures - it is a stunning example of the classic British roadster. The exterior was carefully reshot in 2-stage deep burgundy and all of the chrome trim is in good nick. The restored interior is as nice as the exterior and... there is a new top and full tonneau cover. An original jack/wrench tool kit is also included. The 948cc engine was completely rebuilt in 2009. All fuel lines were flushed, tank cleaned and the two SU-H1carbs are tuned perfectly. A new clutch, pressure plate and throwout-bearing were installed and the four-speed manual gearbox shifts flawlessly. The fully detailed chassis is still virtually concourse. Lever shocks work in conjunction with front A-arms/coils and rear double trailing links/semi-elliptic leaf springs. Brakes are 4-wheel manual drum and 13" Dunlop radial tires are mounted on Minilite-style alloy wheels. This beautiful Bugeye Sprite does the famous British icon proud. Don't wait long. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
