 Vehicle Description
This first-year Austin-Healey Sprite is a desirable car for being the noteworthy machine to launch the Frogeye look into the world. So its great to find one with such a well-coordinated paint package, upgraded performance, and a nice price.br / brbr 1958 was the first year for the Sprite, and it really changed the automotive landscape. The unique headlight arrangement earned it the Frogeye nickname, but there was a lot more to this body. The red paint gives a nice gloss to the sleek body. But as you look deeper at this design, you see the cool curves are also part of a unibody construction that gives strength without adding weight. In fact, this featherweight machine can even shed its roof, side curtains, and windshield for racing. So while this one is a great classic to look at a?" from the bright mesh grille to the factory hubcaps a?" theres always an underlying feeling that you know this was built for the pure joy of driving.br / brbr The black roof and side curtains are crisp and look great against the red paint, but we really know a Sprite loves to be open to the world. So its great to know you get the same color appeal inside, too. Black bucket seats, a black dash, and black door inserts look great against the touches of red inside and that deep red carpeting. The classic Healey dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a terrific view of the full gauge package, including the large Smiths speedo and tach. And the wood-topped gearstick is in that ideal place where you want to rest your right hand. So this is a drivers machine that truly feels instinctual. br / brbr The entire front end lifts on these first-gen Sprites. Its a cool look that also shows everyone the strong unibody construction. While the idea behind an A-H Sprite is about performance through lightness, this one also has an extra secret. The Series I cars topped out at 948cc, but this has the 1275cc displacement of the final series. It inhales deeply with a nice set of twin SU carbs. But the real performance piece in this setup you. The four-speed manual transmission lets you take full control of the motor, and you work in harmony with the engine to deliver an undebatable driving experience. Theres even a front disc brake upgrade to maximize control.br / brbr A terrific fun classic with some terrific upgrades. This Austin-Healey Sprite is exactly the classic youve been looking for.
