So.....as some of you may know I tend to bore you to tears with stories of my Sprite rebuild :)

Well here it is at last - 1963 Austin Healey Sebring Sprite
Almost complete, it needs a coupe top and interior to be finished

I have owned the car for more than 25 years and it's been great fun all that time
Previously owned by a friend who raced it and came 3rd in the 750 Motor Club Championship in the 1980's and I continued to do a few sprints and hill climbs in it when I was still happy and single ;)

It still has a lot of the road going race set up including lowered and stiffened springs, 2 inch LCB straight through exhaust, a 60thou bored out 'A' series block - ported, gas flowed, balanced crank, piper cam and much more.

So what do you drive when not in your Tonk?

Cheers

Not so Rusty Sprite :b4

Some vandal has written AMU I35A on your hood.

Probably means something cool in youth talk.

Think about repaint this car rusty. Smurf color does not fit to this car (coz his driver can't even park in proper place :pie ).
I suggest u to pick a tomato color Image
Your car is still there? I can hear someone just calls the police.... Image


Spoiler:
...and speaking more seriously is a very nice car rusty.
I'd like to know more details about the technical capabilities of this car :ugeek:

Pic added BP
Interior needs work - Carpets and door cards
Leather seats and trim in the future maybe
