NOW SOLD to Frank and Mary of New Jersey! Congratulations!!!
This 1959 Sprite is AN5L 10904. It’s a fully restored beauty, and we call it “Vanilla.” The Olde English white looks right, it’s warm, and stunning with a smart wine red restored interior. This car has the original 948 engine and front drum brakes, just like when it left the factory.
This car was very lucky, as it had $40,590 in restoration work done by a shop in Texas. That work was completed in March of 2011. It was an exhaustive project, and everything was replaced or renewed.
The engine was rebuilt, as was everything else. The complete 12 page invoice is included in the gallery below. You’ll find an amazing list of repairs was done to give this car a new lease on life. Mostly stock parts were used in the restoration, although a stainless steel exhaust was fitted. Everything works. Nice to see a correct new wiring harness was also installed at that time.
The car mostly sat since the restoration, and we have gone through the car and refreshed the hydraulics to bring the car up to speed. Now the car is ready for a lucky new owner.
I love the period rear nerf bar. It offers some additional ding protection for the rear end. But if you prefer, we can remove that assembly, and replace the bumper overriders with new ones.
Full weather gear is included, the windows need restoration and the top is old but works. I would be inclined to mount a new deep red top (which we can do for the new owner). That top would match the handsome new tonneau fit to the car.
Give a call or email if you would like to discuss making “Vanilla” your car! This one is a winner.
