Full bare shell restoration to Concours standard. All steel body.
Superb paintwork in gleaming Cherry Red. Engine was upgraded to a 1098cc with stronger ribcased gearbox otherwise all standard specification.
This car was remarkably rust free having been taken off the road in 1973. Its spent all its life in Cornwall and has its original number plate. Only three owners from new.
Carefully dry stored and regularly started a full restoration was started in 2002. Very little rust was found but any was cut out and new metal let in, sills were replaced in full.
Professionally painted inside, outside and underneath.
All parts were then carefully restored or renewed to make this one of the best Sprites I have ever seen.
Only a few hundred miles since completion.
Large file of photos of work carried out and the car back in the 1970's plus invoices old MOT's from the 1970's. Genuine 70,000 miles from new.
Drives extremely well and ready to show or just use and enjoy.
