    POA Originally launched in 1958, the Austin Healey Sprite went through four Marks, before the Healey name was dropped late in MK1V due to the Healey connection being discontinued in 1971, so the final 1,022 Sprites built were simply Austin Sprites. This was a cost-cutting move of Donald Stokes', enabling British Leyland to stop paying royalties to the Donald Healey Motor Company. There was no direct successor, as BL's extensive range already contained the MG Midget, which was identical to the Sprite except for badging, and the similarly dimensioned and priced Triumph Spitfire. This 1275 cc Austin Sprite was one of the last series built in 1971, and was registered a year later in 1972 Originally registered as NUC292L in 1972, the Sprite has been subject to the attention of four enthusiastic owners since the 1980’s. who have well maintained the car, it comes with a sheaf of invoices detailing the work over the years, including more recently 2012 / 2013, the engine was rebuilt for fast road / track use, with an engine rebore with new H/C pistons and tuning modifications carried out in the last 7000 miles, the Sprite was MOT’d this year and is due for renewal in January 2018.
