Description for Austin Healey Sprite 1958

This is a very restoreable special bugeye. I do not have the title.It's 80% complete.
From my understanding the factory started with production number 500 or 501.That would make this the 1305th bugeye to roll off the line. Pretty cool!The '58 had several unique aspects that seperated it from the others. Gusseted door openings, box tube frame under vin tag, no rear frame rails(gussets), big healey thin chrome windscreen w/ body color alum. pillars, steel frame side curtains w/ Isenglass clear vinyl and the black rubber floor mat interior. And a few had a trunk lid!
There is orig white paint under the VIN tag. Looks like it was blasted years ago on the outside only. So i guess those doors are original.The bonnet has a messed up hinge pad piece. A 1/2" rod has been welded across it for strength.
Most parts are not pictured.
