1960 Austin-Healey Sprite $11,500

Red · 4 Cylinder · 9,464 miles

Selling my loved Bug Eye Sprite. I purchased it in 1989 from my uncle. Always been garaged. Zero to minimal rust.

Restored after purchase with the goal of having a good-looking car that was mechanically sound and reliable. New carpet kit, interior, wiring harness, soft top, painted and straightened. Engine was completely rebuilt by family friend and British Master Mechanic. Engine work was solely mechanical and not cosmetic (see photos). Currently it is not running just because it has been napping in our garage for the last 15 years. Getting it running shouldn't be a big job (new battery, "re-float" fuel pump, make sure oil is in engine, bleed breaks, etc). Willing to sell it in current condition for $11,500.

He is Mazda Miata red with black interior with white piping. Has a 4-speed manual transmission, duel carburetors, mechanical fuel pump and solid wheels with chrome hubcaps. Soft top is functional and new looking, however has a tear in it where it connects to trunk. Window curtain location is unknown, but if I find them, will forward to new owner

It is a super fun car to drive and, of course, has a ton of personality. I have so much more information to share on the car. Please call for more details. He needs a new home where someone will love him and drive him.
