1962 62 Austin Healey Sprite MKII Roadster - Right Hand Drive


⭕ This is a 1962 Austin Healey Sprite MkII convertible. This is a lovely little jewel of a car. The Austin Healey Sprite was introduced at the Monte Carlo Grand Prix weekend in 1958. Despite the opulent surroundings, the car was a stripper sports car that utilized parts from lowly BMC econoboxes and didnt even have a trunk lid. The luggage had to be loaded through the cockpit. Nonetheless, it became an object of affection and brought top down motoring to a generation of undergraduates. The first edition was called the Frogeye/Bugeye, because of the unfortunate location of the headlights, which were supposed to be retractable but remained fixed as a cost saving measure.

In 1961, an updated version was introduced with the headlights in a normal position. This Mk II version also had an exterior trunk lid at the rear. Front disc brakes were also an improvement. A badge-engineered MG Midget was introduced the same year and was almost identical to the Healey.

It is very likely that this car still has its original panels. All chrome work is in very good condition throughout. The dashboard retains its original appearance with nice original classic Smiths gauges (gas, tachometer, speedometer, oil pressure, amp meter, temperature) that work (mechanical tach is missing the cable) and look great.

It has the original 4 cylinder 948cc engine, with just under 33,500 miles, original twin carburetors, original 4 speed, non-syncro first gear gearbox, new brake pads, new top, newer tires with original wheels and AH hub caps, new custom seats, new roll bar. We just completed a valve job, new clutch assembly, new clutch throw-out bearing, new starter, rebuilt master cylinder, new brake cylinder and shoes, new water hoses, new motor mounts, new transmission mounts and new transmission carrier bearings.

This is a very well sorted car that has clearly benefited from living in a dry climate since it is rust free. Everyone should own an old British roadster at some point in their life, and the MKII Sprite is a solid choice. This is a sold little car with bags of fun and charm in equal measures that is just crying out for its next new owner.

This is your chance to get a piece of history and as you know, these are getting tougher and tougher to find. This 1962 Austin Healey Sprite convertable can be yours for only 7,700 Pounds OBO. This Sprite is located in the San Francisco California Bay Area, USA. If interested please email or call Bruce @ 5lO-333-45lO. If this ad is still showing the car is still for sale, I will remove it when its sold.
