WEBB MOTORS INC. one of the oldest British Car dealerships in America. was founded in 1949.   The company. located in Roanoke. Va. is still owned by one of the original principals and has operated out of the same location since 1957.  

Over the years. Webb Motors has held new vehicle franchises for BMC. Rootes Group. Rover. and most recently Triumph until their demise in 1984.   In addition to the car lines. the company sold and specialized in British motorcycles.   During it's tenure in business a great variety of used British vehicles have passed through the doors.   Sales have not only been limited to the more familiar marques such as MG. Austin Healey. Triumph etc. but have included other classics as diverse as Alvis. Aston Martin. Bentley. HRG. Lotus. Jaruar. Morgan. Turner. Westfield and many others.  

The company has a small Service Department. but the knowledge and experience of the Service Manager and personnel is second to none.    Webb Motors does not operate out of a modern facility. nbsp; rather it represents the epitome of the era in which it was founded.

There have been articles written about the Webb Motors over the years but the most notable is the cover page and article of it in the December 2010 edition of The Vintage Triumph Magazine denoting it as the "Time Warp Dealership".   A visit to this dealership truly is a warp back in time when the aforementioned British Classics were making their debut and taking a foot hold in America.

Now to this auctions featured Classic:

For auction is a 1959 Austin-Healey Sprite "Bugeye"

1275cc 4 cylinder engine

Twin SU HS2 carburators

4 speed manual transmission

Actual mileage is unknown. speedo was replaced when car was restored.

This car was restored to as new condition in our shop. with the following upgrades.   It has the later 1275cc engine. and fin case gearbox. both of which have been rebuilt to standard or uprated specs.   We never use turned or undersize crankshafts.   It has front disc brakes from later
Sprite/Midget.   While the original Bugeye specifications were adequate for the period. these are common upgrades for this vehicle which make a great car for today's highways and conditions.
