I am selling my 1960 Austin Healey Speedwell Sprite. I purchased this car
from Tom Colby out at Speedwell Engineering about 10 years ago. This is a
California car, never wrecked and never rusted. It was vintage raced out on
the West Coast.
The car has a Speedwell Monza bonnet with alloy shrouding to the radiator.
It has an extremely well crafted roll bar, with side intrusion bars, but
still can fit a soft or hard top to the car. It is, for the most part,
street legal, although wipers will need to be fitted to the car. It has a
Fuel Safe cell built into a stock Sprite tank in the original location. It
has a central fire extinguisher system installed. The car sits on Panasport
wheels. It needs new tires, and they are included with the sale. It has a
Mota Lita steering wheel. A soft top and side curtains are included. A very
solid, restorable Bugeye bonnet is included with the car. A factory hard top
is also offered for an additional cost.
Current motor is a fresh 948, with flat top piston, a 295 casting head, and
a BMC factory "649" cam, with a cast header, with the exhaust tucked up in
the pan, exiting through a Super Trap muffler.
The car is priced to sell. See
