ODOMETER
1960 Austin Healey Sprite

The Austin Healey Mk1 was introduced In May 1958 at Monte Carlo. The Sprite quickly became known as the Frogeye because its headlights were prominently mounted on top of the bonnet, inboard of the front wings. 48,987 Frogeye Sprites were made. The 43 bhp, 948 cc OHV engine was derived from the Austin A35 but upgraded with twin 1 1⁄8" inch SU carburettors. The rack and pinion steering was derived from the Morris Minor 1000 and the front suspension from the Austin A35. The front suspension was a coil spring and wishbone arrangement, and the rear axle was both located and sprung by quarter-elliptic leaf springs. There were no exterior door handles; the driver and passenger were required to reach inside to open the door, and there was also no boot lid. A car was tested by The Motor in 1958. It had a top speed of 82.9 mph, and could accelerate from 0-60 mph 20.5 seconds. The test car cost £678, including taxes of £223. These Frogeye Sprites are becoming evermore sought after. This matching numbers example, in Old English White with Red trim and hood, is very original and usable, and still has its original bumpers and steel bonnet. This is a low mileage car which has been owned by the vendor for the last 16 years. The car is said to have been regularly serviced, and comes with a Heritage certificate, drivers handbook, a large file of old MoTs, invoices, past owners, and the original 1960 bill of sale. This is not a perfect car, but a nice usable example that drives very well.
