Almost every part has been replaced or reconditioned. Being an early Mk2 Austin Healey Sprite, it is rare to find but also fitted with the early, original Ashley roof makes it particularly special as the roof is irreplaceable now. Restored with the inspiration of the Monte Carlo rally, it is an extremely beautiful car.
