Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite, original example in good condition for sale
This is an opportunity to get a very original Frogeye which both looks good and drives well. It is the larger-engined Sprite (1098cc) and is in private ownership. The all-metal. cherry-red bodywork has been well maintained with only minor stone chips and one small area of paint on the back. which was not well-matched at some time. Since buying it in 2001. it has been regularly serviced and the current MOT runs to March 2014. There is a file of history showing what work has been carried out by me and the previous owner. The underside is also in good condition with sills and some panels replaced within the last ten years.
it has its original number plate which adds to the value of the vehicle and I have documentation which guarantees this and shows the lengths that previous owners went to to get it back when DVLA regulations changed in respect of historic vehicles. As a historic vehicle. the road tax is free and currently runs to end of March 2014.
In 2011 all new tyres were fitted. together with two original wheels sprayed to match. which gives the car a smoother ride. The old hubs are also for sale separately as these are becoming harder to obtain.
The instrumentation and controls are all original type except the steering wheel which is non-standard and smaller. A new speedometer was fitted during 1997-8 and the actual mileage is estimated at 83. 00 from MOT records. The fuel gauge has not functioned since I had it (it is fun dipping the tank!) but I recently established that it is would cost about £50 to get a reconditioned unit. Everything else works.
It comes with a black tonneau cover and beige vinyl roof. both of which are weather resistant. The interior is black with cherry red piping around the seats. Also included are spare tyre. jack and steering wheel lock.
