Completed and Mounted Replica of My Vintage Racer 1960 Austin Healey Sprite

Recommended Posts

I finally finished with the mirrors, seat belts and created a mount using the original steering wheel from the car. The case is for a 1/32" scale car. The Bugeye is so small, it fits just about right. The medallion is for winning my class in H Production at Virginia International Raceway in the 1 hour endurance race. Finished 15th overall out of 31 cars. That's where the pic in my avatar was taken. Paint is Scalefinishes Acapulco Blue over Tamiya primer. The roll cage mirrors and mounts and steering wheel are scratch built. Wheels and tires are from a Mini Cooper kit.

Good old British Frog Eye Sprite! Very well done! I was on an Air Traffic Control team at Silverstone Circuit, myself and two other guys had built kit cars, and another guy who normally came in a saloon car turned up one week in one of these in Grey, that he had done a ground up resto on! He couldn't keep us away from it!
