BugeV8: 1961 Austin Healey Sprite

A few years ago we found an AWESOME V8 powered Bugeye Sprite at the Coronado Speed Festival and the seller was asking a pretty steep price for his well build treasure.  If that was a bit too rich, perhaps you’d prefer the 1/2 finished version for about a fifth of the price?  Find this 1961 Austin Healey Sprite Bugeye V8 offered for $4,500 in Milwaukee, WI via craigslist.  Tip from Rock On!

This car is a unfinished project, BUT the basic parts list is impressive.  Power comes from an all alloy Buick 215 V8 with a high lift hydraulic camshaft, custom headers, mated to a Borg-Warner T5 manual gearbox.  When finished the 225 horsepower will push around the 1800 lbs car with ease.
