John Sprinzel's Austin-Healey Sebring Sprite

(and other special versions of the Austin-Healey Sprite)

I established this website as a celebration of John Sprinzel's Sebring Sprite Coupés, of which only about 6 examples were produced by his London tuning business, and which were raced and rallied by him and other enthusiasts, in the 1960's. The alloy coupé tops and fibreglass Sebring bonnets were built by Williams & Pritchard. Two of the cars took part in the 1961 Sebring 4 hours race in the hands of Stirling and Pat Moss. There were other similar examples, including a fastback version produced (more cheaply) by Peel Coachworks, and I have been gradually expanding the site to include the Donald Healey Motor Company's "works cars" as well as other body variations of the Sprite which were produced in period, and more recently.

Below are just a few of the many categories covered by this site. Photos now number over 3,000 and historical research into the early cars continues thanks to your help and input.

This Website:

Perhaps I should just clarify that this is my personal website and that I have no business connection with the organisations referred to. I have built up good relationships, and friendships, with them, before, during and since building my own car in 1993.
