Introducing the Austin-Healey Sprite Mark I. This car has sleek body lines and classy bug eye headlights. It sports blue paint with light grey accents. If you like it support and comment!
Originally introduced in 1958, this car became known for its headlights. The plan was to have the headlights flip up and down. After cost began to rise, the company decided to cut the headlight mechanism and have the lights fixed in place. The car became known as frog eye in the UK and bug eye in the US. This car was also known for its body taking some structural stress. It had Austin A35 front suspension and Morris Minor 1000 steering. This car was featured in The Motor magazine. It had a top speed of 82.9 miles per hour. It also got 43 miles per gallon.
This set would sell for about $20 US currency based on parts.
Thanks for the support. Let's get to 10,000!
