CUTE YET PLUCKY, DUAL CARB, 948 CC INLINE-4, 4SPD TRANS, GOOD COLOR COMBO, FUN!!

Lightweight sports car fun with a legendary name attached is why this 1960 Austin Healey Sprite is so alluring. These first-gen Frogeyes have become truly desirable collectors, so it's great to see one so affordable.

The Sprites were all about the joy of driving, and these first-gens did it the best. After all, you can't help but smile when you see the styling that's unique to these first few years. And while the design is endearing, this had a much larger purpose. It's a featherweight machine that could even shed the roof and windshield for racing. This even comes with an aerodynamic cockpit tonneau for that added touch of race-ready fun. When you have something this driver-ready, it's also nice to have such a driver-quality style. That means you have a memorable style with bold blue paint, creamy white wheels, and a touch of brightwork flair on the bumpers and grille. So it looks good as you cruise through the small towns on your favorite backroads drive. And the overall fit and finish mean this is the one you take out on a whim without worrying about the pebbles on the pavement.

The interior gives you the true European sports car appeal with classic bucket seats and everything ... Please ask for the full description.

CUTE YET PLUCKY, DUAL CARB, 948 CC INLINE-4, 4SPD TRANS, GOOD COLOR COMBO, FUN!!

Lightweight sports car fun with a legendary name attached is why this 1960 Austin Healey Sprite is so alluring. These first-gen Frogeyes have become truly desirable collectors, so it's great to see one so affordable.

The Sprites were all about the joy of driving, and these first-gens did it the best. After all, you can't help but smile when you see the styling that's unique to these first few years. And while the design is endearing, this had a much larger purpose. It's a featherweight machine that could even shed the roof and windshield for racing. This even comes with an aerodynamic cockpit tonneau for that added touch of race-ready fun. When you have something this driver-ready, it's also nice to have such a driver-quality style. That means you have a memorable style with bold blue paint, creamy white wheels, and a touch of brightwork flair on the bumpers and grille. So it looks good as you cruise through the small towns on your favorite backroads drive. And the overall fit and finish mean this is the one you take out on a whim without worrying about the pebbles on the pavement.

The interior gives you the true European sports car appeal with classic bucket seats and everything within reach. You might decide to update the seat covers or restore the Smiths readouts, but the fundamental joy of driving is present. It's in everything from the feeling of the pull-start dash knob to the smooth action of the shifter. While this one is upgraded with a Bluetooth radio, you know the best soundtrack is the exhaust note you create on the road.

Under the hood is the 948cc engine with a dual set of carbs, and it works with the weight-saving diet to deliver a spirited performance. Combine this with the close-ratio four-speed manual transmission, and understand why people love these cars. After all, there's no better feeling than rowing through the gears at the right time to stay in the powerband. The last key to the Sprite being so good on the backroads is its unibody construction. It was revolutionary for a road car, keeping the featherweight body nice and stiff in the turns. So you can understand why we're so excited to have a strong-running example that's easy to enjoy.

This offers pure driving pleasure from day one. And since the Frogeye Sprites are so in-demand, we bet plenty of you see such a complete and well-priced example as an excellent base for your project. That's why you know this is a tempting deal that will move quickly. Call now!
