This Austin Healey Sebring Sprite is built using a new chassis by Wheeler & Davies, equipped with a fiberglass Frogeye rear end, and a full roll cage with sidebars that are custom-made to fit very tightly under the roof section.
The hardtop is glued to the lower bodywork to give extra strength, especially to the rear end where part of the center panel was cut out.
Bonnet is reinforced with Kevlar honeycomb and tied to the standard unit to prevent slacking of the middle section on the rocker cover. The doors are a direct copy of the original Sebring doors but made in Kevlar.
Car is painted in the color Royal blue with silver stripe.
This Sebring Sprite is also in possession of FIA passport and has driven the car in various rallies, including the Historic Tulpenralley 1995, Healey meets Lemans 2006 etc.
