1966 Austin Healey Sprite. 1098. MK3. OEW. Stunning For Sale
Hi, we are Paul Higgs Cars based in New Milton in Hampshire.
We specialise in Classic Minis and also have a broad knowledge and experience of British Classic cars. We always have a selection of Classics available and we pride ourselves on offering a friendly service with objective advice. We also offer full garage services ranging from a service to a full restoration. Our full details can be found on our website and we are always happy to discuss your requirements.
We are very pleased to offer a beautiful and well presented 1966 Austin Healey Sprite. Finished in Old English White with contrasting black trim, a colour combination that really suits the lines and really sets off this car. This Sprite has had just three previous owners in 53 years, the last two from the same family and this is the first time it has been available since 1986. It is accompanied with a large service history folder, previous V5s, two sets of keys and various photographs over the years. This Sprite has been loved and cherished and always garaged. It has covered only a few hundred miles in the last ten years, mostly to the MOT station, a test which it passes every year without advisories, and back and to the occasional show.
In 2002 this Sprite was rebuilt into a Heritage shell which is fully documented in the service history folder, it was completed to a very high standard and as you can see from the pics, it presents very well indeed. The build was completed very sympathetically and it still has a very original feel, as all of the interior and brightwork was retained. The end result is a super solid Sprite with excellent panel gaps but with a period feel, in short it was not over restored and is very useable.
On the road this Sprite is great fun to drive. The 1098 engine is very smooth and the gearbox is slick and precise. It holds strong oil pressure and feels very well planted on the road. Performance is brisk and the grin factor is guaranteed. Open the roof and let the sunshine in and the experience is amazing. Im a big fan of these cars and there enthusiastic following is justified.
This Sprite has a wonderful original interior and still has its original black seats, door cards and unrestored dash, it has auxillary oil pressure and temp gauges, and a voltmeter which all work well. There is also a period Grandprix steering wheel and a MW radio which still makes some noises. the hood is also in fanatastic condition and very easy to operate.
As mentioned this Sprite was rebuilt into a heritage shell so is offered in fantastic solid condition, the paintwork gleams and this car looks stunning. It still has al lof its original chrome work and steel wheels and hub caps. Its a real pleasure to work on as there are no hidden age related issues with the bodywork and structure, its ready to be enjoyed and shown off proudly. If your after one of these fantastic Sports cars that you can use and enjoy then you may have just found your car.
This Sprite is fully serviced, and has been worked through front to back and driven by me just to make sure its all good! It has a full MOT and is of course MOT and Tax exempt. Viewings are welcome and I am happy to answer questions you may have either through here or on 07752414395 or the details below (Paul)
