Austin Healey Sprite - The Complete Story

In May 1958, one of the world's largest motor manufacturers unveiled a diminutive two-seater that would take the world by storm. Small in stature yet able to punch well above its weight, the Austin-Healey Sprite rapidly gained an enthusiastic following among keen drivers, as well as an impressive record in competition.
Being neither expensive nor exotic, for many motorists the Sprite opened the door to sports car ownership and, in so doing, its commercial success was almost guaranteed.

With over 250 photographs, this book includes:
- The genesis of the Sprite, from the Austin Seven and pre-war MG Midget, via Donald Healey's Riley- and Nash-engined models, to the Austin A30, A90 Atlantic and Healey Hundred.
- The development, launch and market reception is covered along with details of the evolution from Mk I to Mk IV, including the Frogeye and restyled ADO 41.
- Rallies, racing and record breaking details are given as well as information on modifications, special-bodied variants, replicas and finally, buying and restoring a Sprite today.

Frogeye Sprite - The Complete Story

Original Sprite and Midget - The Restorer's Guide to All Austin-Healey and MG Models, 1958-79

A restorer's guide to the Sprite and Midget. The aim of this book is to reveal, in words and colour photographs, how the many models - from 'Frogeye' Sprite Mkl to 'rubber-bumpered' 1500 Midget - altered in detail through the 21 years of production between 1958 and 1979.

Fourteen distinct versions, two basic body styles, engines of four different capacities and numerous export variations mean that an amazing number of specification changes, large and small, occurred over the years.
Drawing from factory production records, parts lists and catalogues, as well as the accumulated knowledge of a dedicated author, this book provides the most thorough production survey of the Sprites and Midgets ever published.

Accompanying the authoritative text are over 225 specially commissioned colour photographs showing every permutation of Spridget specification in outstanding detail.
Careful selection of cars of the highest quality and originality - two of them have travelled fewer than 1000 miles from new ensures that the photographs provide a valuable reference source. Indispensable for all owners, restorers, buyers and enthusiasts.
