The original Mini was a revolution on wheels - offering iconic style and space for the masses. The fuel crisis beating 'people's car' that became a fashion icon, synonymous with Britain and the 'swinging '60s'. The mechanical genius of the design placed the ubiquitous 'A-Series' engine transversely across the frame with the gearbox with its sump. A rubber cone suspension replaced springs, accentuating the 'go kart'-like handling and allowing for 80 percent of the floorpan to be used by passengers and their luggage.

With current ownership since 2006, the Sprite, wearing some classic Mini features, was last on the road that year. Featuring some sports seats and White Minilite-style alloy wheels, the car also wears a centre-mounted roof aerial, Talbot-style sports mirrors and bonnet straps. The bumpers are the early-style ‘towel-rail’ type, so there are plenty of ‘old school’ accoutrements to evoke Mini heritage. The 998cc engine has been fitted with an unleaded head conversion, with the invoice for the work on file. In need of restoration and/or recommissioning before returning to the road, it is offered with a V5C registration document and a Haynes workshop manual.
