Here is the engine as it arrived. Looks pretty ugly with the light blue paint. Everything will be sandblasted and turned to it’s original color. This sprites engine should be Hammertone Green.

1969 Austin Healey Sprite

Saturday, November 13th, 2004

Here is the Sprite as it was picked up. It has disc wheels in the front and wire wheels with a wire wheel rear end in the back. It hadn’t been started in five years but after some plug and wire changes and a drain of the gas tank it ran pretty well.
