1966 Austin Healey Sprite
Have you always wanted a tiny British roadster to enjoy the roads at legal speeds? Youíd have a hard time having more fun behind the wheel than you would with this Austin Healey Sprite!
This car is definitely going to stand out from the crowd at your local show or cruise in, or anywhere, for that matter. Sure, itís tiny, and sure, itís finished in awesome yellow paint, but itís so much more than that. This car is a joy to drive. The four-speed manual is very direct, with short throws that make it engaging to drive. Being so low to the ground increases your sense of speed, too, so you can have just as much fun as the guy in his Corvette Ė without the speeding tickets!
The beauty of a lightweight roadster like this MK4 Sprite is its power to weight ratio. The car weighs so little that the 1275cc 4-cylinder engine is able to move it along at a brisk pace. It feels balanced, fast, and fun, thanks to its rear-wheel-drive layout, too.
On the inside, the black interior is in fantastic condition. The car was recently repainted and restored Ė two years ago Ė so everything is nice and tight. The seats are comfortable, sight lines are excellent thanks to being a convertible, and the car drives beautifully. Manual steering keeps you connected to the road to enjoy the drive.
The hood is cool, too. Undo the latches on either side, and the front clip of this Austin Healey Sprite lifts up to reveal the engine compartment. Couple that with the fender-mounted mirrors, and what youíve got is a great little throwback to a time when cars were simpler, and cars got faster and more fun by losing weight, not gaining electronics. This car is a puristís dream.
