THIS IS NOT YOUR ORDINARY OR TYPICAL AUSTIN HEALEY BUGEYE / FROGEYE SPRITE

 

THIS SPRITE HAS BEEN COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED. REENGINEERED. IMPROVED. UPGRADED AND THEN PROFESSIONALLY REASSEMBLED TO BE MUCH BETTER THAN WHEN IT ORIGINALLY CAME OUT OF THE FACTORY IN 1961. 52 YEARS AGO

ONCE DISASSEMBLED EVERY PART OF THIS CAR HAS BEEN EITHER REPLACED WITH NEW PARTS OR CLEANED. REPAIRED. REBUILT. RECONDITIONED. POWDERCOATED. AND THEN REASSEMBLED AS NEW OR. IN MOST CASES. BETTER THAN NEW. I HAVE A TON OF TIME AND MONEY INVESTED INTO THIS SPRITE TO GET IT TO THIS STAGE AND IT COULD NEVER BE RECREATED FOR WHAT IT WILL SELL FOR. I AM NOT SELLING TO MAKE A PROFIT AS THAT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE DUE TO THE AMOUNT THAT I HAVE INVESTED INTO IT.
