DESCRIPTION

A cheerful 1959 Austin Healey 'Frogeye' Sprite, restored in the mid-90s and described as in generally good condition, although the paintwork on the steel bonnet might benefit from a little attention. Finished in Old English White with a black interior, this car is believed to have been imported from the States in the early 90s and was previously left-hand drive. It is accompanied by a number of previous MoT certificates and invoices for work carried out.

The car is offered with a valid MoT certificate which expires in November 2016 and is said to drive well. Frog eyes are great fun, easy to work on and parts are plentiful. Sensibly guided this car offers a real opportunity to purchase a car that, with a little fettling, could be someone's pride and joy.
