Red Convertible Vehicle Overview: Stock: MC605 VIN: 8AE32322 Year: 1961 Exterior Color: Red Make: Austin Healey Interior Color: Black Model: Sprite MkI Mileage: 0 Engine: 4cyl Transmission: Manual Vehicle Description: Restored 1961 Austin Sprite 'Bugeye' in Red with Black interior. Upgraded 4-cylinder 1. 98cc engine. 4-speed manual transmission. Performance headers and exhaust. New tires. Updated sound system. This fantastic little Bugeye is ready to go.

This fantastic 'Frogeye' has been completely restored. It's brilliant red paint over black interior is the favored combo for a sporting roadster. and both are in as-new condition. The engine used in the early cars was a 948 cc producing 43 HP. this example holds a peppier 1. 98 cc engine out of a later car. along with updated fuel and ignition systems. and performance headers and system. This car is a blast to drive --- nimble and quick with instant acceleration.

The Mark I Sprite made from 1958-1961. became affectionately known as the Frogeye in the UK and the Bugeye in the US. The initial design intended for the headlights to be retractable but cost cutting deleted that idea. therefore the headlights were simply fixed in a permanently upright position. giving the car its most distinctive feature.

Thanks to the grinning grille and those bulging headlamps. the car was dubbed the "Bugeye" Sprite. or "Frogeye" in the U. K. The Sprite quickly gained a following and they could be seen racing for several decades. Approximately 50. 00 Sprites were sold. introducing many to the world of sports cars.
