Description for Austin Healey Other 1960

Thank you for looking!

This is a true, one of a kind, build. The custom construction, Austin Healey Sprite, was built almost entirely from excess and leftover materials and parts from various Broadway shows, Rock & Roll Tours, trade shows, theme parks and other show biz related jobs. Some parts such as wheels, fiat steering column and motor cycle parts were donated by friends and co-workers that wanted to see it finished.

We have a picture album of the complete build, taken over the years, from various jobs that the materials or parts were taken from. What is listed below is just some of the shows parts were taken from.

The original car was a 1959 Bug Eye Sprite. The engine, drive train, and front suspension were removed so that they could use it as a prop for the Broadway show, “They’re playing our song”, that starred Lucy Arnez.

The aluminum tube frame is built from lighting trusses taken from KISS tours. It was 2”OD 1/8” wall 6061 Aluminum Tubing. The rear end, springs and shocks were taken from a 1961 MG A. The gears are 4:55 from an MG Sedan. The diamond plate around the bed of the car was from “Star Trek” in the Las Vegas Hilton. Seat and fender spacers are from the “Phantom of the Opera” chandelier winches. The seat belts are from Rio Sky Parade floats in the Rio Casino. The bucket seats and covers are from the Disney 45th Anniversary parade floats in California, as well as the gold leaf on the tool box.

The original Austin Healey Sprite 4cy engine is 948cc, 58 CU In. It’s been bored .40 over with close a ratio transmission. Port and polished heads.

The car is a true one off creation that gets amazing looks. It runs and drives great. Over $45,000 initially invested and it shows.

The title shows the make as an Austin Healey and model as a reconstruction.
