I used to own a 1968 MG Midget that looked almost exactly like this car, including the flat brick red paint 😀
1966 Austin Healey Sprite for $3k on Craigslist
1966 Austin-Healey Sprite, runs and drives. Rebuilt motor with slight over bore to 1299cc. New SU carbs. Slightly hot cam. Rebuilt 4 speed. Needs paint and some minor body work. Have interior kit, ready to be installed. Steel wheels and 2nd set of race wheels.
I’ll bet there’s some haggle room in that price too. With a paint job and some minor TLC, this looks like it could be a great little ride by spring.
