This delightful period piece, 1958 Austin Healey Sprite. The car has been with its current owners since 1973 who have cared for it well judging by its condition. There is photograph from many years ago showing the car being driven in a speed trial. The car has been in local ownership from new having been first registered by Central Garage, Pangbourne.


The body is tidy rather than concours but is solid with no major rust worries. Recent MOT's do not list any particular chassis issues or significant advisories.


The car runs well, it looks like a 1098cc engine replacement has been fitted at some point. It also has had wire wheels fitted along with conversion to disc brakes, we do have some drum uprights if you wanted to convert the car back. 



The car is largely original, it currently has an aftermarket steering wheel but we do have the original, without the centre boss unfortunately.


Apart from our accurate and reliable description of this car we believe you will not find a better bunch of chaps to deal with; we know our MGs inside out, we won’t flannel you with sales speak and we aim to provide you with a car that you will be bringing back in a year’s time when the next service and MOT is due, no sooner! However, if you do have a problem we will stand by our car and help you in every way possible. We like to think that 38 years in this business counts for something.

 We are in the quiet Berkshire countryside but close to the M4 and Mortimer Railway Station. Our local pub, the Elm Tree is just a few minutes’ walk away and serves fantastic food and proper beers. Call us to arrange a viewing and a test-drive and come and make a day of it.
