This Austin Healey Sprite MK 2 hasn’t been tinkered with and is exempt from Dutch road tax, it has a Dutch Periodic Vehicle Inspection valid until 14-10-2021 and a complete registration. It has a 980cc four-cylinder engine. You can immediately drive it after a transfer of ownership and insurance.

An original black soft top is included as well as removable windows. The top and windows can be placed in the boot. It has a very sporty look without the top and the windows. The whole shebang can be set up in just a few minutes if it showers.

The original LHD car starts, drives and brakes well. It has very stable road-holding and was always used and serviced. A big pile of maintenance invoices are included.

There is also a 35-year-old valuation report indicating that, at the time, it was worth 15,000 guilders. This report comes with the car.

There are a number of books in the boot and some spare parts that belong to the car. Among other things an original workshop manual.

It has a double carburettor, the upholstery is neat, the car starts, brakes and drives well.

A few things are noteworthy.

- The car has a new Dutch periodic vehicle inspection valid for 2 years.

- The car has, like any English car, the problem of some oil underneath.

- The paint has been touched up in places in the past and you can tell, as far as I’m concerned it’s simply part of its history.

- Reversing requires some skill but this will be explained during a visit or when you pick up the car after the purchase.

- The steering was recently replaced for a walnut one.

Please see photos for details.

A real enthusiast’s car which is exempt from Dutch road tax. It is a roadworthy barn find and can still be tweaked according to your own preference.

There are number of videos available from the auctioneer for the serious enthusiasts.

Please take a good look at the photos and read the text, these are an important part of the description of the lot.

    Folders in goede conditie ontvangen. De kwaliteit van de Austin Seven folder is minder dan ik had verwacht. Misschien heb ik niet goed naar de foto's op Catawiki gekeken.
