Lot 1901

Description:

1966 Austin-Healey Sprite Mk.III
Reg. no. EEA 273D
Chassis no. Unknown
Engine no. Unknown
The Austin-Healey Sprite\'s long production run of 13 years was a true vindication of its basic principles, being intended as a low-cost model that was accessible to all. The model had tough perameters, being the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin 7, but it had excellent pedigree, having been designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company. Production took place at the MG factory at Abingdon where they used a tuned version of the Austin A-Series engine. The Mk. II was a more conventional looking sports car and the Mk. III was a further evolution of this with a 1098cc engine giving spritely performance required to compete with the newly introduced Triumph Spitfire. This car was last running in 2008 but it is now in need of some restoration, particularly to the chassis and body; we understand that a reconditioned factory engine was fitted in the early 1970s. It is offered here with a V5c.
