About Frogeye Sprite

A great book covering the Austin-Healey ‘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 considerable 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
  • Modern day Sprites – new-builds and restorations
  • Owners’ experiences of living with and driving the Frogeye
  • Information about clubs and support for owners
  • Foreword by Bic Healey.
