Hi

Upsetting to be selling "Mr Powers".

This is a great and very rare Austin Healey Sprite Mk2. This is the later version with the 1098 engine and the disc brakes! In my opinion this is the best of all the Sprites.

This car drives like a gem! It starts first turn of the key. has no smoke or rattles. The steering has no slop and all the controls are tight and play-free. The gearbox. clutch. radiator and clutch/brake master cylinder were replaced in June by IK classics at a cost of £2300.   As a result the gear change is lovely. It is sensational to drive :)

The bodywork was restored about 5 years ago (photo restoration included) and is showing a few signs of deterioration - not rot anywhere though - just a few cracks appearing in the paint and a small amount of sinkage. Overall though - he looks great in Idris blue!. Underneath is solid. Includes roof. sidescreens. tonneau. jack. spare wheels.

Under the bonnet could do with a tidy - but again - solid - no rot.

A bit of work could make this a lovely car. Only selling due to the purchase of a new Elise.

The car is located at IK classics in Hepworth near Holmfirth. It will soon be on display in the Oil Can Café.

I paid £5500 in June for this car and have spent £2500 on it!

This is an adorable and very original little car - which will delight :)) I will miss him terribly :(

Good Luck. Priced for very quick sale. Viewing by appointment only please.
