1964 Austin Healey Sprite MK2 1/2


Specifications


Description

 

The little Sprite was a big seller, and as such was granted a significant refresh at the end of 1961, with new bodywork that featured a more upright nose with better integrated headlights, full-width bumpers, and a real trunk lid, which mandated more structural bracing, increasing weight slightly.

While engine displacement remained the same, the SU carburetors were upsized for nearly 47 hp. In 1962, a larger 1.1-liter (1,098cc) engine arrived, producing 56 hp and was fitted to all Sprites. To cope with the extra grunt, front disc brakes replaced previous drums, the gearbox was converted to stronger Porsche-style synchronizers.
