Car description

Up for auction is my very nice 1968 Austin Healey Sprite with its orginal engine ( this is a numbers matching car). The car just had a tune up and oil change and is ready for the road. It has a four speed non-overdrive transmission which I had rebuilt earlier. The prior owner had engine work done and installed lead free valves so the car runs on high test no lead gasoline. I have owned the car for 22 years and restored it over time. It has never been in the rain since redo and has always been garaged. The body is completely rust free and contains no bondo. All floors and trunk areas are totally rust free. Some very small body repairs were done in lead during the body work up prior to painting. Any rusted parts were replaced with new parts at that time. Enclosed is a picture of the car just prior to painting. The paint job is still in very, very good condition - no scrapes, chips, or bumps. The interior is also in very good condition. Leather seats. I have taken great care of this car over the years. I am only selling it because I have two other British cars and the garage is too overwhelmed. Plus after three knee surgeries and attaining the age of 70, it is a bit painful for me to get in and out of the vehicle. Youth is wonderful. I have spent over$14,000 in restoring this car.Shipping is easily accomplished. Below I have listed some of the amenities of the Sprite.
