Description

Lot #22 - Equipped with both hard and soft tops! Red over black interior and black top. 1.3L 65 HP inline 4 cylinder motor runs beautifully. One of the last Austin Healey Sprites. The 1969 model boasted more horsepower, more amenities, and a folding frame top that did not require full removal and storage in the trunk. This amazing example retains original sheet metal throughout, even presenting original and very clean trunk pan, floors / unibody, and exterior panels. The interior is in outstanding shape throughout and looks to have been the beneficiary of a very through and recent restoration. The engine runs smoothly with plenty of power. There were no symptoms of overheating, even idling for 15+ minutes during the photo session in 90+ degree Florida sun. The transmission shifts beautifully with no "notchiness" or crunching of synchros and excellent clutch pickup. This is a truly an amazing example. Ready for shows or weekend cruises. We almost never see these cars with the hardtop included - especially in this condition. Don't miss a phenomenal example!
