Description

Make: Austin Healey
Model: Sebring Coupe
Body Type: Coupe
Year: 1960
Price:
Color: Blue
Interior Color: Black

This stunning 1961 Austin Healey Sprite converted to Sebring Coupe with Speedwell Monza bonnet in Mazda Arctic Blue.

The car was professionally rebuilt in the period 2008-2010 when it was fitted with a Peter May race engine of 1330cc capacity and a 7.5" Rally clutch to handle the extra power. Sadly it dropped a valve seat and now has a Swiftune Track Rocket head Cometic head gasket and new pistons.
The engine is balanced and runs nicely, starting promptly and settling to a tick-over. It is quite road-friendly but has the performance and power for competition use. It has a straight cut gearbox using a Jack Knight gear set; Peter May rear springs and Panhard rod, Peter May competition half shafts, negative camber trunnions, and a Peter May top link on the front suspension; front discs. The body has aluminium inner wing tops and edges, aluminium footwell sides and centre console and aluminium door skins. The car is fitted with a full roll cage, 4 point harness and has a fire extinguisher for MSA compliance.

Cooling is taken care of by a reconditioned radiator and electric cooling fan, and 10-row oil cooler.

Electrics are a negative earth with an alternator. A high Torque starter is fitted.

A new Bailey Morris prop shaft was fitted in 2019.

All bills are available from the build and mods, exceeding £32000.00.

Tyres are Yokohama Blue Earth 175/70 x13 fitted 2016, with very little wear.

The engine oil has just been changed along with the filter.
