About this title

Synopsis:

From the 1958 'Frogeye' Austin-Healey Sprite to the last rubber-bumpered MG Midget of 1979, all 14 distinct versions of these much loved cars are studied, with a special section on Innocenti models. This is a re-issue of one of the most popular titles from the celebrated Original series, accepted by classic car owners, buyers and enthusiasts as the definitive source of advice on correct original and authentic specifications and equipment, drawn from factory records, parts lists and catalogues, as well as the accumulated knowledge of the most respected restorers.

About the Author:

Trained as a tool maker in the aerospace industry, Terry Horler has a keen interest in all things of an engineering nature. His first Austin-Healey Sprite, a 1959 Mk1, was bought from a work colleague in 1969. After considerable repair work, it was sold just nine months later - an action that was soon regretted. The next Sprite came along in 1976, followed by several other Sprites and Midgets. Terry still owns and drives a 1960 Sprite purchased in 1979, and a 1968 Sprite MkIV purchased in 1984. This interest in the marque led Terry, along with another work colleague, to form the Midget and Sprite Club in 1983 when these cars were at their lowest ebb. Since then, Terry has been a technical consultant for the club, writing many articles for the club magazine, forming the Sprite and Midget register, and helping owners with a wide variety of problems. Terry's first book, Original Sprite and Midget, was published in 1994, and is regarded as the definitive work on these cars. Terry is now the club documentation officer, dealing with valuations, DVLA re-registration applications, and general technical advice. John Colley\u2019s photography has appeared in car magazines all over the world. Having trained as an industrial photographer with Rolls-Royce aero engines, he made his name initially as a freelance motor racing photographer. Porsche 911s are a passion of his. He lives in Derbyshire, Great Britain. www.porscheinspections.com
