Austin-Healey History

1964 Austin-Healey Sebring Sprite

Share on:

This Austin Healey Sebring Sprite Prototype has traveled only 795.5 miles since new. It was originally raced by the factory in the 1964 12 Hours of Sebring. It retains all the factory paperwork as well as the original Dunlop racing tires on the Healey magnesium racing wheels. Every detail of this car is just as it was when it left the factory. The Healey Works raced a small number of prototype Sprites from 1959 through 1968, attaining impressive results at Sebring, LeMans and other events. Its Sebring race was rather short lived as it retired with a broken axle on the ninth lap. Stephen Pitcaim, a BMC dealer contacted Healey about purchasing the car. Although it was not typically the practice to sell prototype race cars, Healey made an exception for his dealer. The car was commissioned with some street equipment and shipped to Pennsylvania. Pitcaim campaigned the car in some local hill climb events and retired it with the current mileage. It was sold to a friend in 1985 and acquired by the current owners in 2015.
