Description

Fresh from the barn, this Spridget is brought to you in running and driving condition. You will not find another MkIV running at this price so Buy It Now. We'll also accept or counter any reasonable offer. Great for a weekend warrior or father-son project, this Sprite is nearly there. You're viewing a 1968 Austin Healey Sprite MkIV with 75,340 miles on the clock. Running engine is a 1275cc mated to a manual transmission with a standard live axle MG rear.
We've flushed the cooling system and replaced all hoses with OEM reproductions as well as the water pump and thermostat all from Victoria British. The electric fuel pump has also been replaced along with a few fuel lines and an inline fuel pressure regulator. The convertible top is new with a new retaining strip, rubber seal and snap buttons also from Victoria British. The interior is in great condition with new seats and carpet throughout. Seats are black with red piping to match the exterior colors. Wheels have fresh paint with nearly new tires and new chrome trim rings. This Austin Healey looks sharp!
The paint looks good after a polish though there are some spots where it has cracked or formed bubbles. These can be seen in the pics, I can also go into better detail if you have questions on a particular area, message or call please. The car does have some rust spots. Most of the spots seen in the paint are superficial. There area a few holes in front of the driver's door, one is pin sized and the other no larger than the tip of a screwdriver. Could be plugged with a weld or bondo'd easily. The floorboards also have rust, not requiring immediate attention. Should be an easy fix for a weekend warrior, replacing a 22"x18" flat stock and a 17" square tube for the kick boards. An original replacement hood will come primered and installed on the car. The windshield does need replacing, an original from Victoria British is $120 with the full kit at $180, much cheaper than you're expecting. The dash does have a repair on the passenger corner. It can't really be seen unless you're looking for it, can be seen on the interior pics with a flash. We'll be including the Haynes Midget/Sprite repair manual and catalogs from the major parts houses for these roadsters. Parts are relatively easy to come by second hand as this Healey shares the platform with the MG Midget for a broad range of years.
We will answer any and all questions and can be reached at 512-781-0774. Don't be afraid to call at any time if you have a concern about something you see in the pictures or know of any common issues you'd like to clear up. We're just trying to get you in a sweet convertible before summer hits, at a good price. A well informed buyer is essential for a smooth transaction.
Thanks for looking! Make an offer, don't let this one get away!
