For sale in our Orlando showroom is this cute 1961 Austin Healey Sprite MKII. The Mk II used the same 948 cc engine, but with larger twin 11â?4 inch SU carburettors, increasing power to 46.5 bhp. A close-ratio gearbox was fitted. The bodywork was completely revamped, with the headlights migrating to a more conventional position in the wings, either side of a full-width grille. At the rear, styling borrowed from the soon-to-be-announced MGB gave a similarly more modern look, with the added advantages of an opening boot lid and conventional rear bumper bar. The result was a much less eccentric-looking sports car, though at the expense of some 100 lbs extra weight. In contrast to the 'frogeye', the later cars are often collectively referred to as square-bodied Sprites by enthusiasts. This car has been totally restored mechanically, and has less than 500 miles on the rebuilt engine which is 948 cc with a four speed manual. The clutch has been recently replaced with new pressure plate and rebuilt master/slave cylinder. The wiring has been completely redone. It has new front and rear suspension. The brakes and tires have less than three thousand miles on them. The exterior is painted in white which makes the red interior pop. There is no top for this but it does come with a tonneau cover.
