1959 Austin-Healey Sprite Roadster

Lot No. 2026

Auctioned on Friday, May 9, 2014

Sold for $ 4,950

This Austin-Healey "Bugeye" Sprite is described by the current owner as "very rare and in good condition." The little Sprite quickly became affectionately known as the Frogeye in the United Kingdom and the Bugeye in the U.S., because its headlights were prominently mounted and readily noticed on the front of the design. This yellow with black interior and top example is powered by a 948-cc, 43-hp OHV engine that is paired with a manual transmission.
