STK 2712 1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite
This 1959 Austin Healy Sprite Mark I was partially restored in 2019 and is a nice example of the classic British roadster. The Sprite Mark I (produced from 1958 through 1961) was nick-named the 'Bugeye'. The red exterior has been re-sprayed and is in very good condition. All chrome/stainless trim appears to be correct and is virtually flawless. Radial tires are mounted on 13” factory steel wheels with center caps. The restored black interior looks original including the huge factory wheel and passenger grab bar. Seats have been reupholstered in black vinyl. The 948cc engine was partially refreshed in 2019 and runs smoothly and a four-speed manual gearbox shifts flawlessly. This motor is equipped with original dual SU carbs that are well synchronized. Front lever shocks work in conjunction with A-arms/coils and rear double trailing links/semi-elliptic leaf springs. Brakes are 4-wheel manual drum. This beautiful 'Bugeye' Sprite will make you smile. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
