About this Austin Healey Sprite Mk 1 948cc The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports car which was produced in the United Kingdom from 1958 to 1971. The Sprite quickly became affectionately known as the "frogeye" in the UK and the "bugeye" in the US, because its headlights were prominently mounted on top of the bonnet, inboard of the front wings. Our Mark 1 'Frogeye' was first registered on 07/07/1959 and according to the registration document has had 3 owners since. Photos detail a full bare metal rebuild where the car was stripped back to its bare components and fully restored. Now looking splendid in Old English White with contrasting red interior and red tonneau, the car is ready for a new keeper....

This stunning original RHD UK supplied Austin Healey ‘Frogeye' Sprite MKI was first registered on the 10th July 1959 and has had just four owners from new. The Frogeye spent many years off the road and in 2015 was subject of a total nut and bolt restoration. Since completion the car has covered just 775 miles, 150 of these on the rolling road and it was driven to us from the Wakefield area without hesitation. WXX 707 has had an absolute fortune spent on rebuild; £20,000 has been spent alone on parts before labour. Invoices and photographs are available to support this. £9,000 alone was spent having a brand new Wheeler and Davis Stage 3 bodyshell which includes a new steel bonnet, doors and rear wings. The engine was rebuilt by a race engine builder, John Toovey of Toovey Racing. The gearbox was stripped down and rebuilt by a South Yorkshire specialist and the car built up with a brand new interior, brand new weather equipment, new wiring and electrics. The Frogeye was painted in the ever popular Iris Blue and Dark Blue upholstery has been used offering a lovely combination. The Sprite MKI has a perfect, as new underside that has been professionally clear waxoyled at Rustbusters and

Variant name:SPRITE ,Variant: (Sprinzel Sebring Replica) ANDY CHAFFEY’S SPRINZEL SEBRING SPRITE PROJECT: After purchasing a new bodyshell from Wheeler & Davies, Andy fitted an Archers' fibreglass rear body section, with a Sebring Coupé top and bonnet. A roll-cage was installed along with some new bonnet hinges and battery box. Next stage was the painting of the bodywork in gun-metal grey similar to that of Paul Woolmer's PMO200. The garage that carried out the bodywork (John Brooker of Leeds near Maidstone, Kent) also fitted the aluminium front wheel arches into the car, these were also purchased from Archers Garage. Peter Caldwell front adjustable shock absorbers were fitted along with original Armstrong ‘22’ adjustable lever rear shock absorbers. Then the powder coated rear axle with 3.9 Limited Slip Diff mated to uprated Peter May wire wheel halfshafts, and new MWS wheels all round. Wolseley 1500 backplates for 9" drums were also fitted. The front brake calipers are KAD billet 4 pots using mintex metro turbo pads. The Next jobs were to fit the handbrake after it had been re-chromed and the main brake/fuel lines inside the car, like 410EAO. The Gauges were refurbished and the wiring loom made by Autosparks. Next was the 1380cc fast road engine built by the famous Bill Richards (Ex BMC works technician based in Ashford, Kent) with a single DCOE45 side draught webber carb. A 7.5" racing clutch on a lightened, balanced flywheel has been fitted with a straight-cut gearbox built by Hardy engineering using a straight cut gear set supplied by Magic Midget along with a fast road clutch supplied by MED engineering.

757 BOJ was first registered on the 18th May 1960 and spent much of its early life in the Greater London area, based in Eltham, SE9 and later Bushey in Hertfordshire. By 1976 the 'Frogeye' was registered in the North West where it has spent the majority of the past 40 years, moving between Lancaster, Carnforth and the Lake District. We initially brought the 'Frogeye' in through part exchange for a Triumph TR6 in May 2015, collecting it up in the Lake District. We sold the car immediately to one of our regular customers in South Yorkshire and carried out a high level of preparation work to include new track rod ends, new radius arms, rebuilt brake calipers, new rear wheel cylinders, rebuilt rev counter and replacement ammeter, top hose, ignition switch and choke cable.

(SOLD) This Austin Healy was known as Bugeye Sprite because of its distinctive headlights appearance. The headlights mounted on top of the centre bonnet, which hinged from the back in one piece together with outer mudguards.
(SOLD) Completed at the Austin-Healey Works in January of 1960, this Sprite MK I "Bugeye" was configured as a US market left hand drive example. Its early history remains unknown, but by the 1990s the Sprite was in Texas with an Austin-Healey enthusiast. Here it was treated to a meticulous restoration, and tastefully upgraded to a serious performance car. The original 948cc engine was removed in favor of a 1,275cc unit, and a supercharger installed to feed it, while Minilite-style alloy wheels, white-faced Smiths gauges, and a sports steering wheel were fitted to give the car an appropriately racy look. This beautifully presented Sprite offers much-improved performance, charming looks, and should be a fun companion on the backroads for a relatively modest investment.
