Catfish Eye’d: 1962 Austin Healey Sprite

The Austin Healey Sprite was this cute little bug-eye (or frog eye depending on who was asking) 2-seater that was upgraded in mid 1961 to something less cute but equally cool. The new “square body” Mark II Sprite was also badge engineered to make the MG Midget, but today we’ve got something unique. It has a custom front end with big Mazda lookin smile and custom hardtop that is not show in the pictures. But at the current asking price, if it runs and drive nicely it is a winner. Find this 1962 Austin Healey Sprite offered for $7500 in Hayward, CA via craigslist.
