This unrestored 1098cc 1966 Austin-Healey Sprite hasn't been run for five years, so now requires some recommissioning. However, the vendor, who has owned the car since July 1989, tells us that it was running well when last used and the brakes are working on the car. The condition of the hood is reported as good. The Sprite was registered in July 1966 and its V5C shows just two registered keepers. The mileage indicated by the odometer is 84,365 miles. As an historic vehicle, the Austin-Healey is now MoT-exempt; there's no record of it having had one back to 2005 when online records began. The car is fitted with the higher differential and has what the vendor describes as excellent mechanics. It also has a hard-top as well. 

Paperwork accompanying the Sprite includes the V5C, MoT certificates back to 1969, the original green logbook and old tax discs. There's also the owner's handbook plus a large stack of bills dating back to the early 1970s.
