This (my Dad’s car) is of 1958 vintage, and has been totally restored and upgraded. It has the original body (with a steel bonnet) but it has late midget running gear and a 1275cc engine (new in 1991). Consequently its a great little car! And it kinda stops too!! (for a Sprite!).
It has some quirks from the era such as foot-operated dip-switch, no synchromesh on first gear, ill-fitting plastic side-screens, no door locks or outer handles, and no seat belts (or air bags!!).
LATEST PICS: Now with shiny new over-riders on the front bumper, the old ones had been removed as they were all rusty! Also rubber door liners!! >>>>>
