Description for Austin Healey Sprite 1959

Offered for sale is a 1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite. This car is extremely solid and original, and was taken apart to restore decades ago and has stayed in its disassembled state since. The structural integrity of this Bugeye is almost unheard of to find on the market these days, and is the most original, straight, rust free example that I have seen.

The paint is original, which shows that the body is in great shape. A British Motor Heritage certificate has been acquired, and verifies the original paint and interior colors, as well as the body number. The backside of the dash panel still shows the VIN number written on it from the factory, and the original red seats are in great condition considering their age.

A rib case transmission comes with the car, as well as the standard smooth case and a 948cc engine. The major mechanical components are present, and all parts pictured are what comes with the sale. There is no title, and the car is sold with a bill of sale and the Heritage Certificate only.


I also have an entire parts inventory available to purchase separately for Austin Healey Bugeye and square body Sprites, including:engines, carburetors, transmissions (smooth and ribcase), crankshafts, cylinder heads, cam shafts, flywheels, rear axles, diffs (various ratios), cast iron water pumps, front suspension components, brake components, disc brake conversions, distributors, heaters, radiators, bumpers, pedal assemblies, windshields, doors, fenders, hoods, decklids, steering wheels, steering columns, wire wheels, dashes, grilles, gauges, sidecurtains, NOS and reproduction sheetmetal repair components (including NOS rockers), seats, cockpit trim, chrome, original jacks, etc. Images are available of the inventory for interested buyers.

Don’t miss this opportunity to acquire an amazingly solid Bugeye project, at a fraction of the cost of fabrication work on a rusty example.Dozens of additional images are available by request.Call or email Austin with questions 712-301-9743.
