Restored 1959 Bugeyed Sprite for sale!

This is a restored 1959 Austin Healey Sprite Mark 1, AN5L 6825, a car we call “Mellow.” The car was owned for 40 years by the prior owner, and kept in nice climate in South Carolina. It shows… the car is rust free, without any blisters anywhere. This is a very solid car that benefitted from zero road salt and good garage storage.

Bugeye trivia: This is an early ’59 car that still has the long color-matched door handles. Note coil mounted on top of generator, an early car feature too!

The car is quite stock, with a 948 engine, smoothcase transmission and drum brakes all around. It’s great to drive, and looks great too. We have added a new carpet kit, new interior panels and new door edge gaskets to freshen-up the interior. Overall, the car looks brand new.

The car was repainted once along the way, and the paint is holding up quite nicely. It shines great. The gas cap is properly painted yellow… this was the way the cars came from the factory, with color-matched caps.

We’ve just mounted new tires on the original wheels (which look great) so that the new owner will have fresh rubber. We also removed the windshield frame and replaced the windshield to body gasket and polished the original windshield stanchions while we were at it. We also replaced the carburetor top hat gaskets, which were due because of age.

An older top, tonneau and side curtains are included. 31566 indicated miles. Electric fuel pump upgrade has already been fit.

If you want a very slick stock Bugeye to enjoy, Mellow will do the job! Call or email to make Mellow yours.
