(and other special versions of the Austin-Healey Sprite)
This website is a celebration of the Sebring Sprite Coupé, of which only about 6 examples were produced by John Sprinzel's London tuning business, and which were raced and rallied by him and other enthusiasts, in the 1960's. The alloy coupé tops were built by Williams & Pritchard. There were other similar examples, including a fastback version produced (more cheaply) by Peel Coachworks, and I am gradually expanding the site to include the Donald Healey Motor Company's "works cars" as well as other body variations of the Sprite which were produced in period, and more recently.
Pictured below are the 4 (known) surviving 'original' W & P Sprinzel Coupés:-
The Healey 'Works' cars
No less than 17 of the Donald Healey Motor Company's ex-Works race and rally cars have individual web-pages on the site, with others still to come. A few of these are shown below:
Not detracting in any way from the exclusivity of the, now very valuable, 'original' cars ~ the replica versions which have been assembled since 1993 have given today's enthusiast the opportunity to acquire an almost exact copy of the original ~ for everyday, or competition, use. With the help of Archers Garage and Wheeler & Davies this is now a practicable proposition at a very reasonable cost. Below are some examples of Sprites fitted with Archers' replica Sebring bodywork:-
Perhaps I should just clarify that this is my personal website and that I have no business connection with the organisations referred to. I have built up good relationships, and friendships, with them, before, during and since building my own car in 1993.
