Austn Healey Sebring Sprite
FIA Appendix K Spec Berlinetta type fastback Aluminium body Sebring Sprite
A recently built Ali bodied Sebring Sprite recreation. Based on the Adrain Andrew design from the early sixties. I understand only two of these cars were originally built by the Peel Coach works company as a continuation of the development of the racing Sebring Sprites.
The car is built on a fully restored MK1 chassis with Ali body and doors fabricated by a well know Sebring expert. The bonnet is an Archers fibreglass mould.
The mechcanics are essentially to the Homolagation papers but the car is currently fitted with a fresh professionally built 1275 race engine and ribbed CR gearbox.
HT papers have not been applied for due to the larger engine and gearbox. If you require papers you will need to fit the 948cc enging with a smooth case gearbox. I'm happy to remove the current engine and gearbox and reduce the price should you so wish. A minor change will be needed to the front brake calipers as well if your inspector makes issue of the standard caliper fitted. I can assist the new owner with the caliper change requirement.
This is a full race car and all safety equipment is uptodate. The car is currently registered for the Classic K series but qualifies for many other national and international race series. It would make a great Goodwood revival entry.
Full photographic history of the rebuild is available as is a back up racing package if required.
