1965 Austin-Healey Sprite MkIII

An older restoration that has been sitting for some time; essentially very solid; from a deceased estate

This spritely 1965 Austin-Healey has clearly had a plenty of work done to it over the years. The bodywork remains in solid order, although the paint looks to have been applied at home.

Invoices on file suggest a restoration in 2004, which included new rings for a 1,275cc engine, which its engine number would also suggest. It had a new clutch, wiring loom, exhaust as well as new std big end bearings, mains, timing chain and oil pump at this time along with rafts of the small parts needed to make a nice car.

The interior of the car is smart, with perfectly serviceable carpets and good seats along with a good hood.

It has obviously been unused for some time as the engine will need to be freed before use. That said, the car has a lot of potential and looks like a straight-forward project.

It comes with a handbook, brochure, Haynes restoration manual and rafts of bills and there is a spare wire wheel in the boot. Its most recent MOT dates from 2012.
