1966 Austin-Healey Sprite MK III Convertible Vehicle Profile

1966 Austin-Healey Sprite MK III
Convertible
The original Sprite was introduced in 1958, complete with 'bugeye' headlights and a grille set in a mischievous grin. Easy to handle and inexpensive to buy, a total of 48,510 were sold. The Mark II and Mark III Sprites added roll-up windows and other creature comforts to the original formula and were even more popular. The Sprite wasn't just cute - it was fun to drive, and legions of enthusiasts were introduced to autocrosses at informal weekend gatherings of like-minded individuals flogging their Sprites successfully against much more powerful competition. This example was discovered in 1990 in the basement of a home in Atlanta, the parts mixed in with those of at least three other cars. Restoration was begun in 1996, and other than paint work, most of the work was accomplished by the current owner and his wife.
