This is the perfect project for anyone looking for an easy build of a simple car. The hard work is already done. Thousands were spent on bodywork and paint. Now the project is ready for assembly by the right party.
This MK 2 Sprite (HAN7L 30093) is a later mark 2 Sprite with disk brakes, rib case transmission and a 1098 engine. All the original Mark 2 Sprites (HAN6) were upgraded in October of 1962 at car #24732 and hence this HAN7 is a 63 model. The car was a rotisserie project that stalled due to illness and has sat for a while.
The paint job is excellent. The car shines beautifully. It was painted at least five years ago and there are no blisters or imperfections showing-a great sign. There is no evidence of any issues with panel and/or rust repair that was done when the car was repainted. It was done right. The only sin I can see that was committed during body restoration was a failure to degrease the interior floor pans prior to paint (you can see this paint on the top of the floor pans now flaking off due to improper prep). But this is no indication of the quality of the external job elsewhere, where it counts. The underside floors, for example, were properly prepared and the paint is adhering perfectly. The new owner can easily scrape the interior floor pans, degrease and paint. They will ultimately be covered with carpet anyway.
Many new and used parts are included. All new front disk brake components are also installed on both front wheels. Panel gaps are quite good. Whether you build a performance Sprite or a correct restoration, this is an excellent platform!
A used 1098 engine as well as a used rib case transmission core are included. I was told the engine was rebuilt, but you should presume both engine and transmission will need a rebuild.
The car comes with a clear title. It would cost thousands to prepare and paint a Sprite to this level! Please call if you would like to make this car your own!
