1959 Austin-Healey Sprite Mk I Thin Pillar Roadster in gorgeous Sapphire Blue with a black interior, black convertible top, and Minilite wheels.
Extremely nice car in our dealer with only 11,852 indicated miles. 1960 is the first year for the Bugeye and
the first ones were built with the thin painted windshield pillar before the advent of the later thick aluminum windshield brace.
This is one of those early cars which has spent its life initially in Singapore's then Jakarta city.
The original twin carb 948 cc engine is completely stock and has been fitted with a period correct finned aluminum valve cover and new chrome air cleaners.
Fires right up and settles into a smooth idle with a deep exhaust note from the stainless steel exhaust system.
There are no mechanical issues no smoke, no leaks, no noises and runs nicely on pump gas. The four speed smoothcase transmission shifts perfectly and the factory gearing allows relaxed 65 mph cruising.
Pulls nicely through the gears and is a joy on country roads.
