This Austin-Healey Sprite was registered in July 1965 and is showing 18,901 miles on its odometer. Its last MoT expired in May 2018 after being tested the previous year at an indicated 18,764 miles. As an historic vehicle though, the Sprite is now MoT-exempt. The vendor reports that it runs and drives, starts easily, engages all gears and has good oil pressure, although the rev counter doesn't work all the time. However, not having been used much lately, he believes it would now benefit from a tune-up. The hood is described as being in fair condition. A restoration has been carried out at some point, although the date is unclear. The  interior has also been retrimmed. Paperwork includes the V5C, a photocopy of the driver's handbook, MoT certificates and invoices back to 1991, although many date from around the 2013 era which may be when the car was rebuilt.
