A bit of history
The Austin Healey Frogeye Sprite burst onto the scene in 1958 and captured the hearts of the motoring public with its cheeky countenance. It was affordable and sure-footed on the road. On the racetrack, the Frogeye proved itself with its nimble handling and ample opportunity for tuning.
In 1961, the Sprite was joined by its little sibling, the MG Midget. The Sprite and Midget, collectively, Spridgets, continued in production until 1979.
Today, Spridgets are loved as great classic cars. Spares are well catered for and the mechanical elements are simple enough for the owner to maintain themselves. There is a large and active owners community, with clubs, car shows and race and track days.
If you are lucky enough to have owned any of the Sprite or Midget family, then you’ll know what wonderful and characterful cars they are.
