The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports car which was produced in the United Kingdom from 1958 to 1971. It was intended to be a low-cost model that "a chap could keep in his bike shed", yet be the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin Seven. The Sprite quickly became affectionately known as the "frogeye" in the UK and the "bugeye" in the US, because its headlights were prominently mounted on top of the bonnet, inboard of the front wings. The cars featured a 948cc Inline 4 cylinder engine that pumps out a heart stopping 43hp and was capable of propelling the Sprite to a top speed of over 80mph.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this lovely cute 1960 Sprite for your consideration. Finished in Iris Blue, this little car is in wonderful condition inside and out. The paint is in excellent shape and the unibody chassis and body are free of dents and damages. The chrome exterior trim is very bright and has excellent shine, even the badges are bright and add a splash of color. The car sits on white steel wheels with chrome factory hubcaps. The soft top is in great shape as well. The blue interior is excellent and features dark blue seats with light blue piping. Everything is in wonderful condition and the clean dashboard and wooden gear shift knobs are particularly nice as well.

This little car has a little car has tons of history and a lot of mechanical work has been performed. The 948cc engine is a happy revver and is said to have been a replacement engine that also has had the head rebuilt and new head gasket installed as well. The car also comes with a number of extras including a spare tire, side curtain windows, window pouches, car cover, under hood side covers, and a tonneau cover. Offering way more fun that you'd imagine, these little Sprites are appreciating at a quick rate.
