This MK1 Sprite from 1958 has been the subject of much restoration and
maintenance going back to 2002. There is a large history file of bills
and invoices that include recent work in 2012 in which the car was
fitted with a new clutch and the cylinder head rebuilt with an unleaded
conversion. It featured in the Feb.’13 test drive edition of Classic Car
Mart where it was described as being ‘one of the best examples you
will find !’ It remains in excellent mechanical condition and very fine
overall cosmetic order throughout. A BMHT certificate that comes with
the car shows it as a ‘Home Market’ right hand drive car, originally
cherry red with red trim the car is now black with a cherry red
interior. Retaining its original 948cc A series engine and with its
correct steel bonnet this is a really fine example that drives as good
as it looks, showing 14893 miles we have MoT’s that go back to 1998 when
the milage was showing as 7259, the car will be supplied with a new
MoT, UK V5C logbook, parts books and a service / workshop manual.
