1960 Austin-Healey Sprite
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Little red car
As you can see from the first picture, I have an authentic Austin Healey Sprite shop manual and owner’s manual for sale for $15,500.00. With them I will throw in a cute little red car.
I have owned this 1960 Bugeye Sprite since the mid eighties and from 1991, when the transmission went legs to the air, to the present, it has decorated my various garages and shops.
I finally got around to getting the tranny rebuilt, new radiator installed as well as a complete fuel system from the tank to the carbs. Brakes, clutch and battery are also new. The tires were new in 2006 but have few miles and have been kept indoors their whole life.
Although I have had the top for many years, it too is like new. I have kept it in a bag all these years because I prefer the top down. With the tonneau cover and the heater going, it is quite comfortable even with snow on the ground.
This is not a perfect car by any means, but if you like to tool around town in the most enjoyable way possible and have everyone smiling and giving you thumbs up, then this is probably what you should be driving.
