GR Auto Gallery of Indy is pleased to offer this HOT 1965 Sebring MX Austin Healey Replica for your consideration. This vehicle offers a combination of British elegance, American Muscle and an alternative to someone that might be in the market for a Cobra Kit Car. Powering this lightweight pocket rocket is a well established 350 Chevy Small Block backed by a Turbo 350 transmission and a Chevy rear end. The strong running 350 engine is topped off by 2 Edelbrock 4 BBL carbs. A ratchet shifter allows the seller to bang through the gears. Upgrades include; a new aluminum radiator and fan, electric cut outs for the exhaust to allow the driver to go from the quiet mufflers to the rowdy sidepipes, functioning air condition, heat, and defroster, new Bluetooth stereo, and speaker/subwoofer, ect... This is basically a 1965 Austin Healey 3000 with all the upgrades done and none of the defects from the original Healey's.

Over the years, the cars were sold to privateers who raced and rallied them. In later years, the Sebring Sprite became a prized possession and the object of veneration within the Austin-Healey fraternity. Enthusiasts sought out the cars, sometimes discovering them in advanced stages of deterioration. Today, the cars are cherished classics that can be driven to and from competitions just like the originals were in their day. Subsequently, numbers of other Sprites were modified as period replicas of the original Speedwell GTs and Sprinzel Sebring Sprites, built to the same homologated specification. One such car is the ""Lumbertubs"" Sprite, built in 1963 by brothers Brian and Ken Myers and named for the lane they lived on. The alloy roof was crafted by Alan Thompson of Aston Martin and a fibreglass Williams & Pritchard Sprinzel Sebring bonnet was fitted. It later acquired a Ford engine and gearbox, gaining some success in sprints and hillclimbs and a class win at Silverstone on 24 June 1967.
