Every one knows and loves a bug-eye. I bought my first Sprite when I was 16 but lusted after a "big Healey". When I was able to, I bought a 100-6 but never cared for the handling. I traded it for this Sprite and never looked back. The 1278 engine swap was amazing. I love this little car.

Paint and exterior

This Sprite is a wonderful driver. I remember returning to it in a grocery parking lot and finding a golf ball size ding in the fender from a shopping cart. A nice pounding out, some glaze and sanding finished off with rattle trap paint fixed it.

Upholstery and Interior

Very much like every other daily driver Sprite I've seen. Comfortable but not fancy.
