This is one of those rare, wonderful finds that has absolutely everything going for it. Not only it is an outstanding fully rebuilt all steel car, it's a UK RHD car that left the factory in Old English White with Red trim and Black hood with heater, front bumper and rev counter, supplied new by Steels Limited, Wiltshire with the original dealer plaque present in the car's history file. The car was built on the 31st March 1959, despatched on the 15th April and allocated the registration mark still on the car today, 287 HWT. Not only does the Frogeye retain its original registration mark, it retains all its original major components thus being a matching numbers car and comes with a period after market hard top. Having spent its early life in Wiltshire, we know the Sprite MKI had made its way to the North West by the 1980's. In 1981 the car was on the Wirral and by 1984 it was in Nelson, Lancashire where is stayed with one owner for 30 years. A major restoration was undertaken during the 1980's butsadly the long-term owner never managed to complete it. Two years ago, the car was sold after more than three decades and the rebuild was finished to an exceptionally high standard. The body was beautifully restored, it was completed on a rotisserie, so the underside is a similar standard to the top of the car. The bare shell was taken back to bare metal and fully re-painted in its original colour. All of the rust in the body had been cut out, replaced with new fabricated panels and some new old stock panels were sourced. Wheels were taken back to metal, brightwork re-chromed, the interior was completely re-trimmed and all new weather equipment purchased. The hard top was re-furbished and the tyres replaced. The engine had been rebuilt with its long term owner but during the most recent second phase the head was removed and converted to unleaded. A new wiring loom was fitted, any electrical components in need to replacement were changed and the gauges were overhauled. The car was treated to a newfuel tank, new fuel pump, fuel line and the carburettors were refurbished. The braking, steering, suspension and cooling system were all rebuilt as necessary and the car then heavily detailed to ensure a show standard finish. 287 HWT has covered just running in miles since completion and is truly glorious in every respect. The bodywork is top class with excellent panel fit and perfect straight panels, the underside looks like new and the paint finish is superb. Chrome is as new, the interior beautifully done, and the engine bay is show standard like the underside. On the road the car is as you would expect having had a high quality rebuild to this standard. It drives superbly with a lively, strong rebuilt engine holding excellent oil pressure, the gearbox is smooth and with braking, suspension, steering, cooling and electrical components replaced, the Frogeye is not far from what a new car would be like. 287 HWR is a top class car, it has the provenance to become a collectors piece, but the qualityto be a show vehicle or weekend use classic that will offer wonderful reliable and enjoyable touring. With this in mind, plus an impressive file of restoration photographs, Steels dealer plaque, invoices, old V5's and Heritage Certificate, this has to be one of the most impressive Sprite MKI's we've come across.

The Austin Healey Sprite MKI was designed by Healey Motor Company within the bounds of their partnership with BMC, the idea being to use as many parts from the corporate parts bin as possible. Most parts came from the A35, front suspension, engine, gearbox and back axle, with the steering rack from the Morris Minor and other off the shelf parts being Smiths instruments and Lucas electrical components. The use of these off the shelf parts helped keep the development costs to a minimum, thereby satisfying the requirement that the car should be cheap to produce. When first launched on the 29th May 1958 the costs was £660.00 including tax and in all a total of 49987 were built between 1958 and 1961. This Sprite was built on the 18th March 1959; the colour was Nevada Beige with Cherry Red interior, engine number 9CU-H/13087 with heater, toughened glass windscreen and rev counter as factory fitted equipment. It was dispatched to Charles Clarke Limited, Shrewsbury on the 3rd April 1959, and first registered on the 13th May 1959. The original registration number is unknown, as it was kept on retention on the 18th July 1974 when FRE 202A was allocated. Christine Hancock, who purchases the car in July 1976 kept it for 31 years. There are 13 MOT certificates, the earliest going back to 16th June 1978 showing a speedometer reading of 22,866 miles, proving that in the 30 years the original engine had covered just 15,235 miles. She sold the car to Sid Locke on the 15th January 2008 and he and his brother in law, Keith Wright restored it with a new body tub from Wheeler and Davies.
