Frogeye Sprite - The Complete Story is the only book to have been written exclusively about the iconic Mark 1 Austin Healey Sprite. The headlights in the bonnet and unusual radiator grill shape gave the car a cheeky grin, so it soon gained the name 'Frogeye'. The book covers the full story of the design, development and manufacture of the Mark 1 Austin Healey Sprite, including the considerab;le success of the car in racing and rallying. Topics covered include: the car's racing success with drivers such as Stirling Moss, John Sprinzel, Paddy Hopkirk and Alec Poole; the special-bodied and bespoke grand touring versions such as the Sebring Sprite, Alexander GT and Lenham GT, plus the one-off Lumbertubs Sprite. The modern day Sprites - new-builds and restorations are discussed as well as owners' experiences of living with and driving the Frogeye. There is information about clubs and support for owners and a foreword is written by Bic Healey.
