Carlo on 20th May 1958 and intended as a low-cost model. the Sprite
was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company which received a
royalty payment from the manufacturers BMC. The low cost of £669
was achieved by using a mildly tuned version of the A Series engine
and as many other components from existing cars as possible.

surprising that the success of the design would lead to an MG
version. which was known as the Midget. In 1969 a 'British Leyland'
makeover was applied to the Sprite. consisting of matt black paint
on the sills. Rostyle wheels and a plastic front grill. In 1974. to
meet US federal regulations. large black plastic bumpers were added
to the front and rear and the ride height was increased; an
