1961 AUSTIN-HEALEY SPRITE MK 1 "Frog Eye" - £20,800 ovno
E AUSTIN-HEALEY "frog eye" Sprite MK1, model 1961, all steel, restored in 1997 by specialists in England and imported to Switzerland the same year by the current owner.
The odometer reading corresponds to the distance covered since the restoration of 1977.
The car is in original condition and has a FIVA Identity Card.
Hood, tonneau covers and side-screens are in very good condition.
Early 2016, the brakes were refurbished (brake shoes, wheel cylinders and master cylinder)
Front wheel bearings, steering gaiters and suspension polyurethane bush sets were replaced.
The 998cc engine is running well and the oil pressure is normal. Electronic ignition was installed (the original one is available). The gearbox is not noisy; the synchromeshs and pinions show no sign of fatigue.
The body has no corrosion, paint is in excellent condition (Old English White). The car has been stored in a heated garage.
This beautiful "Froggy" is a right hand drive, which attests to its English origin.
Few "frog eye" exist on the market today, and even less in their original state.
A great opportunity to drive a real cabriolet of the 60s.
