Vehicle Story

This 1969 Austin Healey Sprite is finished in white over a tan interior. The car retains its original 1275cc 4-cylinder engine which has been recently overhauled and is paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. The exterior has been recently refinished and a new interior installed as well. Acquired by the seller 9 years ago, the car comes with all receipts and records from their ownership. Located in Lebanon, Oregon, the Sprite is now offered for sale on a clean Oregon title in the seller's name.

Finished in white, the car was stripped down to bare metal before the body was sealed and the new finish was applied. The car is equipped with a black removable hardtop, while brightwork includes chrome bumpers, side mirrors, headlight & taillight trim rings, and door handles. The front features an egg-crate style grille with amber parking lamps affixed just outside.

Four new Speedball tires are fitted on all four corners, wrapping chrome factor center caps. The braking system was fully overhauled during the restoration which included new brake drums, cylinders, shoes, pads, calipers, and rotors.

The interior is recently installed, fitted with beige bucket seats, brown door panels, black carpeting, and a black dash pad.  A black shifter for the manual transmission is mounted to the floor on the transmission tunnel, while cranks for the manual windows are located on the doors. The original steering wheel has been replaced with a black 3-spoke Grant GT wheel.

Behind the aftermarket steering wheel sits the gauge cluster, which includes a speedometer, tachometer, and readouts for fuel and engine temperature. A five-digit analog odometer shows 9K miles, though true mileage is unknown.

Underhood sits the recently rebuilt 1275cc 4-cylinder engine equipped with dual side-draft carburetors. Work performed includes rebuilt carburetors, new piston rings, new bearings, new distributor, new fuel pump, timing gears and timing chain, along with a new oil pump and water pump. The engine has less than 200 miles since the rebuild and power is transferred to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transmission with a new clutch.

Included in the sale are receipts from the previous nine years of ownership, including all records from the recent restoration.
