HERE is my 1966 Austin Healey Sprite Mark III, a late example of that model and this a 1098cc example with stow away hood and frame.

During the past year she has been recommissioned with some of the work being engine removed and treated to new main and big ends as well as pistons, engine bay painted at the same time, new brakes (copper pipes and flexi hoses) with new master cylinder for brakes and clutch as well as new clutch slave, all new fuel lines and new pump. Total re-spray including boot which is in fantastic condition. Very good underneath and a great driver showing excellent oil pressure. A truly fine example of a Mark III Austin Healey Sprite in British Racing Green with excellent black interior and removable hood.

My classic cars are motoring antiques. Please do not confuse them with your one-year-old Range Rover. This car, for example, is 56-years-old and so will have quirks and faults in there somewhere. These are not always apparent when buying and selling classics which is what I do. I do not restore them, nor do I pretend that they are concours cars. The majority of them go out as they came in, and I continue to enjoy finding more - a skill which is becoming increasingly difficult as many of you will be aware. They deserve to be taken on as "family pets" and cared for through thick and then. They don't make them any more and demand now out-strips supply. Please bear all this in mind, and enjoy your classic car. I can also assist with delivery and so please ask for a quote.

I have now been established as a one-man band classic car dealer for 20 years and pride myself on my buying prowess and - due to small margins - my prices which I firmly believe are up there among the very best in the UK classic car marketplace.

Thanks, Martin. the details below.

The Austin-Healey Sprite Mark 1 has an unmistakable appearance. It was announced to the public 20 May 1958 and was intended as a low-cost sports car.
