AUSTIN HEALEY Sprite Mk1 1958

Price: € 24 950

  • Year: July 1958
  • Kilometers: 22,000 km
  • Exterior: Old English White
  • Interior: Black, white piping
  • Engine: 948cc
  • Transmission: 4
  • Seats: 2
  • Steering: RHD

This immaculate ‘Frogeye’ Sprite looks stunning in its original colour of ‘Old English White’ with a black interior and original seats with white piping. Built in July 1958 this is a very early Mk1 Sprite and was ordered as a right-hand-drive ‘export’ car for the Zurich concessionaire. 
In 2000 it received a very comprehensive ‘bare-metal’ restoration in Switzerland by its lady owner and great care was taken to retain its original specification as shown on the ‘Heritage’ certificate. There are photographs detailing the restoration and the history file shows invoices totalling over 30,000 CHF with no expense spared.
In 2014 the Austin Healey was then purchased by a Welshman living and working in Switzerland, who kept it in pristine condition and eventually exported the Sprite to France when he moved there in 2018.
The paintwork is immaculate as is the underside of the car. All the suspension and brakes are in excellent condition and the engine is very smooth and responsive and benefits from an additional electric cooling fan. The interior is also in excellent condition with black seats and trim with white piping, black padded dashboard, orignal steering wheel, switches and gauges. The hood and frame are like new and it has the original side screens, along with two tonneau covers (Vinyl and Mohair).
This authentic Austin Healey Mk1 Sprite, offers the chance to own a very desirable sports car, much loved by everyone for its ‘cute’ looks and beautiful styling, but also for its great handling and simplicity of design.
