1964 Austin Healey Sprite

This is a beautiful wee example of the very popular and now rather rare MKII Healey Sprite. The Austin-Healey Sprite was produced in the United Kingdom from 1958 to 1971. The Sprite was announced to the press in Monte Carlo by the British Motor Corporation on 20 May 1958, two days after that year’s Monaco Grand Prix. It was intended to be a low-cost model that “a chap could keep in his bike shed”, yet be the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin Seven. The Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, with production being undertaken at the MG factory at Abingdon. This example has been the recipient of a refurbishment some years ago. Since then the car has had two owners with the current owner downsizing an extensive collection. “Berty” as the car has been affectionately known has been well maintained over the years with no expense spared when it comes to maintenance. The vehicle has full wet weather gear including side screens, full soft top and tonneau cover. The interior trim is very tidy, finished off with a beautiful period motolita wood rimmed wheel. With chromed luggage rack etc this wee sports car not only looks the part but is an absolute blast to drive. Please contact us for further information and photos. Viewing is by appointment only in our North Canterbury based Motor House.
