1959 Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite MKI - UK car, Interior Re-trim For Sale

We are delighted to offer this original home market UK specification Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite onto the market almost five years since selling it to a returning Derbyshire based customer. Our 'Frogeye' is a very honest, original car that still retains its original registration mark 708 BUP and comes with full weather equipment and painted wire wheels. 708 BUP is finished in the highly desirable colour of Old English White with lovely deep Red upholstery and presents superbly.

Between 1998 and 2001 the Austin Healey Sprite had a substantial amount of mechanical work carried out. The cylinder head was rebuilt and converted to unleaded and the block re-bored and new pistons, main and big end bearings fitted. A new oil pump, timing chain and clutch were fitted and the work carried out by a Northern England main dealer service department. The Sprite was also treated to new all new coolant hoses, new fuel pipes, new thermostat and housing, new brake cylinders, brake shoes, brake hoses, brake drums and master cylinder. The car was also treated to a new radiator, new water pump, new halfshaft hub oil seals and ‘o' rings, new rear axle oil seal and the suspension treated to new bushes and wishbones.

Some years after the cars restoration, the Sprite was dry stored and left for ten years and in 2015 came to us in need of some re-commissioning and cosmetic work. Having had no paintwork or bodywork for almost fifteen years, the car was stripped down and treated to a full professional re-paint costing in the region of £5,000. The rear wings were treated to new lower sections with corrosion cut out and replaced with new metal. The original steel bonnet had corrosion removed and was prepared for re-painting. The shell was stripped right down with all lights, badges and trims removed and as a result the car now has a wonderful, deep glass finish with a lovely shine to it. The engine bay was cleaned up, the inner wings stripped back and painted and the suspension was cleaned and the wheels re-painted.

Whilst re-commissioning the car, the engine and gearbox were removed and both rebuilt, carbs were stripped, rebuild and re-set, brakes overhauled, various electrical work carried out, new rear axle straps and bolts fitted, various hoses were replaced as well as the thermostat. Brakes were overhauled as required, the car fully serviced and then MOT tested for its new owners. Since selling the car around five years ago, the Frogeye has been further fettled and comes back to us with a gleaming, beautifully detailed engine bay and the interior has been treated to a complete re-trim and returns to us further improved cosmetically. Mechanically the car has also recently been treated to a brand new clutch, clutch slave cylinder, brake master cylinder, front and rear wheel cylinders and rear brakes shoes and as result, is ready for its next owner to enjoy.

708 BUP has been thoroughly enjoyed over recent years and has offered reliable, fun open top motoring. The Sprite MKI drives superbly, it holds the road incredibly well, is strong, usable and offers good performance. The body and paintwork have held up superbly and present incredibly well, the re-trimmed interior is first class, chrome work is well presented, as is the weather equipment and the car is ready to use and enjoy without hesitation.
