M/S of sign reading 'British Racing Drivers' Club - Silverstone Motor Racing Circuit - Unauthorised Entry Prohibited' standing on a road. Pan to a wonderful open-top car driving along a country road and up to the Silverstone entrance. The moustachioed driver ( John Bolster in Austin Healey 100-6 ), wearing a deerstalker hat and checked jacket chats to an RAC man at the barrier and is allowed in. The man watches racing driver Roy Salvadori get into the Austin Healey Sprite. He drives off and around the track, leaving a spray of water in his wake (looks like quite a rainy day). Various shots of the man as he drives along. The deerstalker man watches him go. FILM ID:3252.05 A VIDEO FROM BRITISH PATHÉ. EXPLORE OUR ONLINE CHANNEL, BRITISH PATHÉ TV.

A quick tour of my '62 Austin Healey Sprite. Fun little car. 948cc engine that's just been rebuilt, I do have a set of mini-lite wheels waiting to go on. I do have the original top as well. The exhaust is a home-made straight pipe with autozone tip (looks nice and sounds great!). I do have the OEM muffler as well.

On "My Car Story" we're in Scottsdale AZ at Cars & Coffee at The Shops Gainey Village on 1-7-17. We're looking at a 1960 Austin-Healey “Bugeye” Sprite in White Paint. The car's Owner is Bob Morey. Bob’s had the car since 1983. A College Roommate had one and he drove it, and fell in love with it. Bob’s restored the car and won a concourse award from the Austin-Healey Club USA in June 2013. ENJOY!

The Austin-Healey Sprite is a small open sports car which was produced in the United Kingdom from 1958 to 1971. The Sprite was announced to the press in Monte Carlo by the British Motor Corporation on 20 May 1958, just before that year's Monaco Grand Prix. It was intended to be a low-cost model that "a chap could keep in his bike shed", yet be the successor to the sporting versions of the pre-war Austin Seven. The Sprite was designed by the Donald Healey Motor Company, with production being undertaken at the MG factory at Abingdon. It first went on sale at a price of £669, using a tuned version of the Austin A-Series engine and as many other components from existing cars as possible to keep costs down. In 1961 the Sprite was joined by a badge-engineered MG version, the Midget, reviving a model name used by MG from the late 1920s through to the mid 1950s. Enthusiasts often refer to Sprites and the later Midgets collectively as "Spridgets."

Rattling gears on deceleration sounds like this, and this noise indicates busted gears and pieces. This is what it sounds like on a Bugeye Sprite (and many other British cars)

Leonard Lord and Donald Healey were in full swing with the Austin Healey 100 as their premium sports car export, time now to serve the masses. Donald's design brief was to keep costs down, he did by robing the Austin and Morris parts bin. Thankfully he also kept the fun element high, something borne out by an incredible 49,000 units sold in just 3 years of production. We drive Classic Car Club London's superb example and appreciate the simple things in life that make the Frog Eye Sprite a truly memorable experience. Full review at http://classiccarsdriven.com/

Video from three races of my poor little 1959 Sprite that was wrongfully accused of being "too loud" and cost me a 1st place finish at Blackhawk Farms Raceway with the VSCDA. Take a listen and you be the judge. Warning: I have been told this little 1275cc car is capable of deafening mere mortals!

Not only is this just one immaculate Mk IV Sprite, this is a fully documented, one-owner California car that is rust-free, accident free and includes all of the original parts that were ever changed out! The original sales receipt is included and all of the repair orders dating back to 1967! It is so rare to see this sort of recording-keeping! Car was purchased in July of 1967 from Sunnyvale British Motors. It even has it's original black and gold California license plates! It sports factory competition suspension parts, cast wheels, limited slip rear end, and an engine rebuild done around 60K (well maintained) miles back. By mid 1977 it had covered 110K miles and was put into storage. Around 1980 a substancial amount of cosmetic work was completed including a repaint of the original color, new top, tonneau cover, rugs, windshield and more. It was driven briefly to it's current 120K miles then once again retired indoors until now. Car has been gone through after storage and is 100% roadworthy, ready for super long drives or just cruising around town. Compression is 140 in each cylinder. The clutch was just replaced. The car runs and drives magnificently! Owner is now in his 70's and it's a bit difficult to get in and out of. If you are looking for an amazing Sprite with great history and documentation, this car should be seriously considered. See it at http://www.leftcoastclassics.com/LCCofferings.html
