Sprite & Midget Photoclassic
|INSIDE:||120 colour photos|
The Austin Healey Sprite was launched by BMC in 1958. Filling a gaping hole in the market for a cheap, mass-produced sports car, its conception and design were inspired. Good-looking and affordable, the ÒFrogeye SpriteÓ quickly became a classic. In 1961 the car was given a proper boot and a more conventional front end. The Sprite was now also available as the MG Midget, and this car was produced until the end of MG production in 1979.
Jonathan Edwards skilful review of the Sprite and Midget includes a wealth of technical detail, model history and superb colour photographs showing all the major variations. No enthusiast for one of the most appealing of all British sports cars will want to be without this book.
