Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer a very fun 1960 Austin Healey Sprite. Often called a "Bugeye" or "Frogeye" Sprite, these little roadsters were produced from 1958-1961. The stock engine displaced 945cc, but a common upgrade is adding a 1,275cc engine such as in this car. This particular car has been fully restored including and engine and transmission rebuild about 12 years ago. The body is incredibly solid and has clearly been stored indoors. Over the past 12 years it has been stored each winter and only enjoyed in the nice weather. Since the overhaul its tallied about 5,000 miles. The exterior has been painted a very unique Seafoam Blue which really suits the car. The interior features upgraded black vinyl seating and a wooden dash. There's a surprising amount of storage behind the seats in this tiny car. These cars make great racecars because of their light weight and handling characteristics. The horsepower may not be a huge figure, but with a proper 4 speed manual and the wind in your hair, it certainly is an exhilarating ride. Safety upgrades like new wiring and a modern fuse panel also aid in reliability. The car has side curtains and can be fitted with a top, but it's certainly best enjoyed open air. If you're looking for an affordable, fun, roadster to stand out in a crowd, this is the car.
