The Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite model is based on the Mark I version of the Sprite, which sported a 43 bhp, 948cc OHV (overhead valve) engine, in turn featuring elements of the BMC family’s Austin A35 and Morris 1000 models. Performance-wise, the Frogeye Sprite had a top speed of just over 130 km/hr.
Several things were unique in this car - externally, there were no door handles. There was no boot lid either, with the boot space and spare wheel accessed by tipping the interior seats forward. This car was on sale for GBP 669 in the 1960's.
