Following the success of the original Donald Healey-designed 'Frogeye', BMC decided to revamp and expand the Austin-Healey Sprite range in 1961, modernising the car with sharper front and rear styling in place of the bulbous look of old and and providing an opening boot at last.
By 1966 the final MkIV version of the Sprite arrived with a more luxurious interior and, most importantly, a twin carb 1275cc version of the proven A-Series engine, which it shared with other BMC sporting models such as the Mini Cooper S. With 67 bhp on tap it could propel the little Sprite to a top speed of 94 mph, although these cars are such fun to drive you always feel you are going twice as fast as you really are! Another major improvement was the addition of a proper folding hood – previous models making do with a separate hood cover and frame.
This car has chassis number beginning HAN10 First registered in 18th June 1970, this Austin Healey Sprite looks particularly appealing in Bronze Yellow and is described as being in Show condition throughout and a pleasure to drive following a rebuild Using a heritage shell completed in 2013 less than 1,000 miles ago comes complete with half and full Tonneau covers they are what came with car when new.
