1960 Austin Healey Sprite (Yellow/Tan)

Price: US $38,000.00

Presented for your consideration is an Austin Healey BUGEYE Sprite open roadster that has been built from the ground up with a steel tube chassis.  It features a customized body, an all leather custom interior and a high performance supercharged small block Chevy engine. This meticulously built roadster shows attention to detail using a lot of stainless steel and polished aluminum parts from the blower to the side pipes.  It’s truly one of a kind!  It is not only fun on a warm summer day, but it's a total head turner that gets attention wherever it goes. If you are the kind of car enthusiast that appreciates owning something truly unique, that no one else has, this car might be exactly what you’ve been looking for! It has never been raced, tracked or shown but it's very quick and beautiful.  The  build was completed in 2012. Since that time, it has mostly been garaged and covered with less than 2200 street miles. DESCRIPTION ENGINE350 V8 engine bored 30 overForged pistonsCrane Cam 287/114Malory Unilite ignitionTwin Demon 625 carbs B&M supercharger Sanderson QP1000 headersCustom 3” stainless steel side pipes DRIVE TRAINTCI 350 Streetfighter trans B&M Quicksilver shifter10” B&M torque converterNarrowed Ford 8” 355 rear endCustom drive shaft SUSPENSIONNarrowed Mustang II rack2” drop spindlesStainless steel upper and lower control armsStainless steel tilting Flaming River steering columnAldon stainless coil over front shocks Jegster 4 link bars with Koni coil over rear shocks  BRAKESWilwood 11” front disk brakesFord rear drum brakesTwin master cylinders with cockpit accessible proportioning valve  BODYAll steel body, mounted onto a fabricated steel tube frameFiberglass front bonnet and rear fender flairsAll body seams have been smoothedWider, longer and lower than stockWindshield chopped  INTERIORCustom dash with Autometer gaugesComplete custom 100% leather upholstery  PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING BEFORE PLACING A BIDThis car has been continuously licensed and insured in California and has been driven on the street without incident.  Technically, in some states, this car may NOT be considered street legal as it is presented today for the following reasons:  It has a Lexan windshield, sidepipes, it doesn’t have windshield wipers, and the blower may be considered an obstruction. The build is now 10 years old and while it has not been driven much, as you would expect there are a few minor body & paint chips. There are absolutely no dents or anything obvious that a casual observer would notice.  The following are not currently operational:  The e-brake is not currently connected and is missing a cable. The brake lights need a new pressure switch.  Everything else is operating correctly.  As you might expect for something this highly modified, this car is being sold in “AS IS” condition. Note: The mileage stated in this listing is since the car was fully rebuilt and a new odometer was installed
