1961 Austin Healey Sebring Sprite Evocation



1961 Austin Healey Sebring Sprite Evocation.

The Doherty Collection

One of Six vehicles which we have asked to find new homes for from the same collection.

These will be offered at approximately 1:30pm ~ 2:00pm with any provisional bids gaining answers as soon as possible.

An opportunity to acquire a Sprite in need of some TLC and then ready to enjoy next spring and summer.

Starting life as a 1961 Austin Healey MK11 Sprite the Austin was overhauled using Sebring front and rear panels.

The engine has been replaced with a tuned 1275cc A series unit that is fitted with a side draught Weber carburettor and 3 branch manifold and is complemented with a competition clutch.

The suspension has been uprated, disc brakes are fitted to the front and the sprite has recently been fitted with a new hood and comes complete with side screens.

The potential is there.

Within the vehicle's history bag in the office we have a pair of 'Aero' style wind deflectors and the vehicle's original Rev counter.

We have a VOSA record from 2011 showing the following...

  • 02/06/2011 @ 90,183 miles
  • 28/05/2012 @ 90,572 miles
  • 03/06/2013 @ 90,719 miles
  • 21/01/2015 @ 90,930 miles

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles. 

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455
