Austin Healey Sprite 1965

Sometimes it’s nice to be a little different to the run of the mill. Its not that you necessarily want to stand out in a crowd, but it is nice to not conform completely. Owners of Austin Healey Sprite have felt this for some time. The little Austin Healeys were developed originally in a joint collaboration between the British Motor Corporation and Donald Healey. Initially the car was a more rounded little sports car, known affectionately as the Frogeye Sprite. These cars were built in the MG plant at Abingdon. Eventually, it became almost inevitable however that the MG Midget and the Healey Sprite would become almost the same. Only they aren’t. The Little Healeys were produced in far smaller numbers. In fact only around half as many over a shorter production run were actually built. Today, the numbers are significantly different. According to “How Many Left” there are around 7500 MG Midget still existent, but only around 1500 Healey Sprites.

This particular little car is in truly delightful condition. The paintwork gleams, the chrome is in stunning condition. It is finished in British Racing Green and comes fitted with Black seats with white piping. It is also fitted with the standard steel wheels with the Chrome hubcaps that include the “AH” initials impressed into them, and they aren’t easy to come by. Tyres are almost like new all round and the hood looks almost new too. There is some history with the car, and it comes with bills totalling over £5000 from work done in the 90’s and early 00’s, and it appears to have had very little use since then. Even the underneath, which although finished in black shines almost as much as the bodywork.

This car drives really well. It’s really tight, and feels really good on the road. Why not be different, and still run a stunning little car that has all the usability of a great little Midget, with all the availability of spares and ease of use that goes with one, but still shows you still have your individualism. Treat yourself to something a little different for only £5995. You will not be disappointed.

This Healey is of course road tax exempt, and will come with a 12 month MOT.
