Unique Austin Healey! An original Alexander tuned Sprite of 1959! Worldwide there are 3 more Alexander Sprites known. So grab this opportunity! This car was found in Sweden. The owner, who bought it 1975, has kept it dry in his garage for about 40 years. During the last 10 years he has not driven it on the road anymore. The car was stored while it was still in a driving condition, therefore it should be technically checked. Alexander was very well known during the 1950s and 1960s for the preparation of racing cars. This car has also changed enormously for improved performance. The engine is tuned, close ratio gearbox, adjustable shock absorbers, dual exhaust system, distinctive set of wider wheels, Webber carburettor, improved suspension, speedometer up to 220 km/h, ORIGINAL SEBRING STEERING WHEEL!! Alexander gear knob and, of course, a very unique Alexander hardtop for more streamlining! You can easily remove this and drive with the aero-screens, as shown in a few photos.

This special car is the first Alexander Sprite that has been offered for many years, so you should not miss this opportunity! The photos of the Magazine date from 1982. The Sprite comes with the Swedish license plate CAD 087

With just a few days of work you can fully enjoy this Sprite again.

The paintwork has been repainted more than 40 years ago, so don’t expect a shiny car in a concours condition. Due to the uniqueness, it would be very wise to keep it in this beautiful patina condition!!!

You can see on the inside of the bonnet that it has been modified by Alexander in the 1960s. The headlights were ever made flat and moved next to the grille, please have a look at the example photos of those years. Also, the bonnet is hinged forward, done by Alexander. You are more than welcome to view this car in our showroom prior to placing a bid.
